The Trial of Agnodice

This is a re-telling of the legend of Agnodice of ancient Greece. Original story written by Gaius Julius Hyginus.

It took less than a year after Ianthe’s first birth for Agnodice’s fame and success to outshine the Athenian physicians. It was not long after that, their jealousy surpassed their admiration. Thus began the accusations and the fall of Agnodice into the hands of this very court.
