Ancient Greek physician, who lived in 1st century
Moschion (physician) in Wikipedia
Moschion, (Greek: Μοσχίων), a physician quoted by Soranus, Andromachus, and Asclepiades Pharmacion, and who lived, therefore, in or before the 1st century. He may be the same person who was called the Corrector (Greek: Διορθωτής), because though he was one of the followers of Asclepiades of Bithynia, he ventured to controvert his opinions on some points.
A physician of the same name is mentioned also by Soranus, Plutarch, Alexander of Tralles, Aėtius Pliny, and Tertullian.
In Byzantine times, a Latin treatise on gynecology by an otherwise unknown Muscio was translated into Greek; this author came to be wrongly identified with Moschion.
