It is well known that Ibn Hindū used many ancient sources for his Miftāḥ al-ṭibb. This article deals with the second, third, fifth and sixth chapters of his work. Their content displays remarkable similarities with what the Alexandrian medical teachers, i.e. the so-called iatrosophists (5th–7th centuries AD), taught in their medical classrooms. A closer comparison with the preserved witnesses of their teaching shows that greater parts of the Miftāḥ al-ṭibb are based on a (lost) Arabic translation of a lecture on Galen’s De sectis which was held in Alexandria in late antique times.
