The present article is to report Galen’s main points introduced by that eminent ancient physician in his treatise De ptisana. His teaching is compared with the expertise of select ancient (the anonymous author of De diaeta in morbis acutis) authorities, who preceded Galen, and Byzantine doctors (Oribasius, Alexander of Tralles, Aetius of Amida, Anthimus and Paul of Aegina), who followed in Galen’s doctrinal footsteps. Additionally, the medical material is set aside culinary data taken from De re coquinaria. The collected information show proximity between culinary and medical knowledge of Antiquity and Byzantium.
