Mesopotamian Medicine

The Tigris and Euphrates River basin was the land of healers and astrologers. Cuneiform writing, libraries, sanitation, and medical knowledge are evident by 3600

BC. Of the 30,000 clay tablets with cuneiform writing that were recovered in the library at Ninevah from ca 2000 BC, 800 are related to medical matters. The medical armamentarium of Sumerian physicians consisted of more than 120 minerals and 250 herbs including cannabis, mustard, mandragora, belladonna, and henbane (45). A terracotta statuette showing enormously fat thighs and arms was found at Susa in the middle Elamite period in the 12th century BC (46,47), indicates the continuing representation of obesity in artifacts of the female body.
