The Liber pantegni (παντεχνῆ "[encompassing] all [medical] arts") is a medieval medical text compiled by Constantinus Africanus in ca. the 1080s, ascribed to Isaac Israeli ben Solomon (10th century). It is a compendium of Hellenistic and Islamic medicine, in large parts a translation of the kitab al-malaki "royal book" of Ali ibn al-Abbas. A distinction is made between theorica and practica, as it has been made before in the so called Isagoge Johannitii an earlier medical text, which was originally written by Hunayn ibn Ishaq. The "Liber pantegni" was expanded by Johannes Afflatius under the title of liber aureus, and further by Stephen of Antioch (1127) as regalis dispositio.
A shorter and more practical compilation of Constantinus is the Viaticum.
