Best Answer

The Ancient Romans weren't skilled physicists as we would consider to be today. They used herbal remedies and a notable figure in Ancient Roman medicine is Galen, who was from Greece, but made a big mark on their culture. He put forward the idea of the four humours, which were prominent in medicine until the time of Vesalius.

Many of the medicines used were influenced by Greece, but some remedies they did use were: Fennel, Rhubarb, Aloe, and Liquorice.
