Numerous medical treatises of the 'Hippocratic Collection' feature distinct textual units which are internally composed more or less planfully but are arranged chaotically within their treatise. This paper attempts to analyse the form and contents of several of these treatises and to construct a possible scenario characterizing the professional environment in which they were compiled, the process and principles of compilation itself, and in particular the material act of writing.
