asû:An akkadian word,means the technician,the doctor,a word whose root meaning we do not know still,was known in Mesopotamia as early as the first half of the third millennium,shortly after the beginning of writing.1,in emperical medicine,the asû(doctor) examined the patient and decided hic et nunc on the treatment to be applied,which he prepared with his own hands,choosing manipulations and 'simples' for their natural properties and to help slow down or stop the action or progress of the ailment.2
