Imhotep, the same as designed the step pyramid, was an important figure in medicine. He is the earliest male physician known and was possibly the original author of the Edwin Smith papyrus, the oldest known surgical treatise on trauma. He was so revered for his medical knowledge that pilgrims came to the step pyramid for centuries after his death to be cured and he was deified ca. 525 BC (more than 2000 years after his death) as the Egyptian god of medicine.
