Antylli veteris chirurgi quae apud Oribasium libro xliv, xlv et L leguntur fragmenta. Dissertatio inauguralis chirurgico-historica....By Friedrich C. F. Wolz.Jena: typ. Schreiberi, 1842.
Antyllus, a Greek surgeon who lived in Rome during the second century CE. is particularly remembered for his work on the surgery of aneurysm. He was first to recognize two forms of aneurysm–one caused by dilatation and the other following wounding of an artery. Much of his writing is available to us only through the industry of Oribasius who included it in his compilations. A German version of Antyllus is in Janus, 1847, 2, 298-329, 744-71; 1848, 3, 166-84.
