Description

(before AD 210) Maia’s remedy for cracks or chaps of the skin comes to us from Galen, but indirectly,  appearing in a passage in which Galen is citing Andromachus Junior, and it was apparently  he who attributed the recipe to a female author whom he called Maia (Galen 13.840 cf. 13.837).
