Spartan Doctors and Medical Science in Sparta is the topic to be addressed by Dr. Giannis Tsoulogiannis (Ph.D. History of Medicine, Sparti) in this week’s Sparta Live! webinar.
Dr. Tsoulogiannis discusses the practice and development of medicine in Sparta. The focus will be on two Spartan doctors, Archagathos (c. 219 BC) and Claudius Agathinos (1st c. AD), who were both active in Rome.
The talk will argue for the presence of a strong medical tradition in ancient Sparta which has unfortunately been largely overlooked due to the conception of an often misleading austere and isolated society.
