An examination of the contents of 16th century medicine chest currently owned by the The Science Museum in London. Made for Vincenzo Giustiniani (d.1570), the last Genoese governor of the island of Chios in the eastern Aegean Sea. This chest still holds 126 bottles and pots for drugs, some of which appear to have 16th century contents. The chest was owned by the Giustiniani family until 1924.
