Abstract

The Tunisian contribution to medicine and genetics was continuum through the various civilizations. In Carthage, on the famous hill Byrsa stood the monumental temple of Eshmun, God of Medicine and Health and a leading figure of the Punic pantheon. Bottles and prophylactic Carthaginian masks, medical devices and surgical and Roman remains, of the Antonin Baths at Carthage, attest to this day the large share which was then granted the necessary conservation of bodily health and the spirit.
