Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Simeon Seth(i) or Symeon Seth(i) was an 11th-century Jewish Byzantine doctor, scholar, and grand Chamberlain under Emperor Michael VII Doukas, originally from Antioch. He was a contemporary of Michael Psellos. He wrote the Σύνταγμα κατα στοιχείων περί τροφῶν δυνάμεων (On the Properties of Foods"), which criticizes Galen and emphasizes eastern medical traditions: "Simeon Seth was the great Orientalist of Byzantine medicine... [he] selected the best, not only from the Greek materia medica but also from Persian, Arabic, and Indian sources".
