To uncover this 'nosological reality, ' Mirko D. Grmek has fashioned a vast array of techniques into a new, multidisciplinary approach that combines philology, paleopathology, paleodemography, and iconography with recent developments in genetics, immunology, epidemiology, and clinical medicine.

A fascinating view of the paleopathologist at work... [Grmek] has obviously made a major contribution both to his own special field and to the understanding of the archaeological finds and literary remains of antiquity. -- Phillip de Lacy * Classical World * Any student or scholar who wishes to pursue almost any topic in the field of disease in ancient Greece will find this book invaluable. * Times Literary Supplement *
