On the nature of the Child is quoted by Galen in his Book "On Semen". I want to know what date is given to these two books, especially "On Generation"?

    $\begingroup$ Wikipedia states: "Generation and On the Nature of the Child constitute a single work by a late-fifth-century author", and cites Iain M. Lonie, The Hippocratic Treatises" On Generation", On the Nature of the Child," Diseases IV", de Gruyter 2011. A review of this book states: "There are also valuable appendices on the author's date, c. 410 B.C." As this is completely outside my area of expertise, I am posting this comment, not an answer. $\endgroup$
