Greek: Ἀσκληπιός
Latin: Aesculapius

Asklepios (or Asclepius) was the God of Medicine and reputed ancestor of the Asklepiades, the ancient Greek doctors’ guild.

Asclepios represents the healing aspect of medical arts. He had four daughters: Aglæa/Ægle, goddess of natural beauty and fitness, Hygieia, goddess of disease prevention, Panacea, goddess of healing (literally, „allhealing“), and Iaso, goddess of recuperation from illness.
Healing temples and “sancturies” called Asclepieia became increasingly popular around 300 BC where pilgrims flocked to asclepieia to be healed. Asclepius‘ most famous sanctuary was in Epidaurus. Another famous „asclepieion“ was on the island of Kos where Hippocrates, the legendary Father of Medicine, is said to have begun his career. Asklepios statues may be recognised by the presence of serpents.
