Agnivesha (Sanskrit: अग्निवेश, Agniveśa) is a legendary rishi (sage), reputedly one of the earliest authors on ayurveda (Indian medicine)
He was a pupil of Punarvasu Atreya. The so-called Agnivesh tantra (or Agnivesha Samhita) is a lost text on Ayurveda.
The text is mentioned in the Charaka Samhita: "the tantra Agnivesha) as written by Agnivesha is compiled, edited and modified by Charaka" (agniveśakṛte tantre carakapratisaṃskṛte)
