Fever in Egypt under Roman Rule: A Documentary Study of Reasons, Kinds, and Methods of Treatment (in Arabic)

Auther : Mohamed Saleh Solieman

Fevers were widespread throughout the ancient world. The writer of the Hippocratic De Aera, Aquis, Locis>, noted that certain types of fevers tended to occur in hot regions. However, the treatise also observed that `water contributes much towards health' and it is important to remember that while Roman Egypt was certainly a region with a hot dry climate, the Nile was also one of its most prominent features. The term `fever' was widely used in antiquity to denote a variety of febrile symptoms and different diseases beacuse any disease that exhibited febrile symptoms was itself regarded as a kind of fever. Consequently, there are numerous examples of outbreaks of `fever' to be found in the documentary papyri. The words used most commonly for referring to fevers in a general sense are <$>\raster(55%)="rg10"<$> in Greek and febris in Latin, seemingly no matter how extreme the fever happened to be, while <$>\raster(100%,p)="rg13"<$> is used to indicate that a fever has passed.
