Ancient Greece

A well-known figure in the history of medicine was the physician Hippocrates of Kos (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC), considered the "Father of Modern Medicine. The Hippocratic Corpus represents a collection of about seventy early medical works from ancient Greece that are associated with Hippocrates and his students. Hippocrates wrote the Hippocratic Oath which is widely used by physicians and other health care professionals to swear to practice medicine honestly to modern days.


The Greeks used many different types of materials in their sculptures including stone, marble and limestone as these were abundant in Greece. Greek art and sculpture has had tremendous effect throughout the ages. Greek arts tell or shows stories about the ancient grreks and the pictures reflects politically and philosophically about what was going on in the society.

The black figure vessels make it possible not only to identify artists and studios, but they also provide the oldest and most diverse representations of Greek mythology, religious, social, and sporting practices. The pottery vessels are also an important tool in determining the chronology of ancient Greece. Evolving from the earlier geometric designs on pottery, the black-figure technique depicted animals and human silhouette figures in naturalistic detail.
