Menodotus of Nicomedia in Wikipedia
Menodotus (Greek: Μηνόδοτος; 2nd century) of Nicomedia in Bithynia, was a physician; a pupil of Antiochus of Laodicea; and tutor to Herodotus of Tarsus. He belonged to the Empirical school, and lived probably about the beginning of the 2nd century. He refuted some of the opinions of Asclepiades of Bithynia, and was exceedingly severe against the Dogmatists. He enjoyed a considerable reputation in his day, and is several times quoted and mentioned by Galen. He appears to have written some works which are quoted by Diogenes Laėrtius, but are not now extant.
