Apollonius (8), of Citium (c. 90–15 bce?), Alexandrian physician. Extant in an illustrated 10th-cent. manuscript, his commentary on the Hippocratic (see hippocrates (2)) treatise Περὶἀρθρῶν (‘On Joints’), offers invaluable evidence of the early state of the Hippocratic text, of orthopaedic *surgery, and of Empiricist polemics. His works on Hippocratic lexicography and on therapeutics are lost.
