ΛΙΜΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΛΟΙΜΟΣ. A study of the Galenic plague, Paris, De Boccard,  2013

Danielle Gourevitch pursues her investigation of pathocenosis in the Roman Empire in the footsteps of Mirko Grmek and his seminal work Diseases in the Ancient Greek World. After Les Maladies dans l’art antique which she wrote with him, and building on her Giovanni pazienti di Galeno, as well as Pour une archéologie de la médecine romaine in this collection, she now follows the trail of a cataclysmic epidemic, the first smallpox epidemic in the classical world, a loimos which, in a context of poor nutrition, lack of food and even famine, limos, devasted the Empire under Marcus Aurelius.
