Najm al-Din Mahmud ibn Ilyas al-Shirazi
Who was Najm al-Din Mahmud ibn Ilyas al-Shirazi?
His major composition was a large Arabic medical compendium, Kitab al-Hawi fi ‘ilm al-tadawi, whose title often caused confusion with the better-known Kitab al-Hawi written four centuries earlier by Rhazes. The treatise cites by name many earlier medical authorities, including Hippocrates and Galen, as well as Arabic writers. Little else is known of his life.
