REDONDO, Jordi. Koine and atticism in the Galenic treatise On Anatomical Procedures. Nova tellus [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.11-28. ISSN 0185-3058.

The treatise entitled On anatomical procedures displays an extensive corpus in order to analyze the Galenic literary language. Its patterns have been diversely labelled, either as belonging to the ranks of a moderate atticism or to the ranks of antiatticism. again this second option, which speaks for the understanding of the treatise beyond any literary intention, the use of many different rhetorical devices shows a good knowledge of artistical prose by our author. Nevertheless, the analysis of language proves that it is based on not-literary Koine.

Keywords : atticism; Koine; rhetoric; scientific Prose.
