What does it mean

TRO

?

Trota of Salerno (Salerno, early 11th Century – 1097) was an Italian doctor who wrote various influential pieces on female medicine with ideas that were way ahead of her time, such as administering opiates to women during birth to lessen pain, a practice that the authorities persecuted. Her work was so revolutionary that scientists denied that a woman could create such pieces and attributed authorship to her husband. It was even stated that Trota never existed.
