Agathinus (Αγαθινος) was an eminent an­cient Greek physician, the founder of a new medical sect, to which he gave the name of Episynthetici.

He was born at Sparta and must have lived in the first century after Christ, as he was the pupil of Athenaeus, and the tutor of Archigenes. (Galen, Definit. Med. c. 14. vol. xix. p. 353; Suidas, s. v. 'Αρχιγενης; Eudoc. Violar. ap. Villoison, Anecd. Gr. vol. i. p. 65.) He is said to have been once seized with an attack of delirium, brought on by want of sleep, from which he was delivered by his pupil Archigenes, who ordered his head to be fomented with a great quantity of warm oil. (Aëtius, tetr. i. serm. iii. 172, p. 156.)
