Aurelius Cornelius Celsus, an encyclopedist of the first century A.D., whose writing on medicine was based on Hellenistic doctrines. Known as the Cicero medicorum, his Latin “became the model of Renaissance writing when his book, almost unnoticed in antiquity and in the middle ages, was rediscovered and printed at a very early date.” —Ludwig Edelstein in the Oxford Classical Dictionary (2nd edn., 1970).
