Interesting Fact:

In 1500 B.C., the Egyptian pharmaceutical record known as the "Papyrus Ebers" was written. Though Egyptian medicine had been practiced since 2900 B.C., the "Papyrus Ebers" is the best known and most important record, which includes a collection of 800 prescriptions and 700 drugs. Pharmacy in ancient Egypt was performed by two or more gatherers and preparers of drugs called echelons.
