Theodori Prisciani Euporiston libri III, cum physicorum fragmento et additamentis pseudoTheodoreis, editi a Valentino Rose ; accedunt Vindiciani Afri quae feruntur reliquiae Lipsiae 1894, pp. 428-463 (Bibliotheca Scriptorum Graecorum et Romanorum Teubneriana).
This teatise has been preserved in many redactions, none of which corresponds to the original text. According to its preface, the text is based on Greek sources and deals with different parts of the human body and their functions (§1-17). The remaining chapters focus on conception, the importance of the number seven, embryology, and birth (§18-25). Faced with the impossibility of reconstructing a uniform text from the individual testimonia, Rose edited a version of the text that presents five versions transmitted by pre-Salernitan manuscripts in parallel. Sudhoff published two other redactions that are present in many late medieval manuscripts, and Schipper recently published a third that was edited and translated by Cilliers:

The incipit attributes the treatise to “Iustus.” Comprised of a collection of gynecological texts, it includes only §1 (the prologue), 13, and 16-22, dedicated to the anatomy of the organs, conception, and birth. The final part (19 hoc nonies – 22 flagerit lingua) is found in the same form in ms. St. Petersburg F.v.VI.3, 8th-9th c., an edition of which Egert curated in 1936. [M. E. Vázquez Buján; tr. C. L.
