Antiphanes of Delos (Greek: Ἀντιφάνης) was a Greek physician. He has been quoted by Caelius Aurelianus[1] and Galen,[2] and must therefore have lived some time in or before the 2nd century AD. He is mentioned by Clement of Alexandria[3] as having said "the sole cause of diseases in man was the too great variety of his food."
