Diocles (c. 375-295 B.C.E.), was was one of the most renowned physicians of antiquity. He was born and raised in Karystos, Evia. Pliny refers to him as one of the founders of the art of medicine, right after Hippocrates (the famed physician from Kos). He authored many medical works (on anatomy, poisoning, female diseases, fever, digestion, medical herbs, surgical ligation). His work "On Anatomy" may be the first medical Greek treatise on anatomy.
