Galen was a prolific writer, but of the five hundred treatises written by this physician of Pergamum in the 2nd century AD, only about a hundred have been transmitted to us in Greek. Some of the other manuscripts are only available in Arabic, Latin, or even Hebrew, while yet others are completely lost. For example, De Indolentia (Peri; ajlupiva~), about which we only know from a reference to the title in De Libris Propriis, has so far been considered completely lost both in Greek and in Arabic.
