It is splendid news for all classicists, especially those interested in the history of women in antiquity that Owsei Temkin's translation of Soranus' Gynecology is back again in print . . . thanks are due to the Johns Hopkins Press for reissuing Dr. Temkin's translation in paperback. Today's students in Women in Antiquity classes will now have full access to this important evidence for women's daily lives in the early Empire. Temkin draws upon his experiences as a physician to supplement Soranus's vague descriptions of medicines. The translation avoids modern medical terminology, keeping close to the original Greek.
