Did you know...?
Asklepios or Aesculapius was a mortal man and famous healer who after his death became a Greek god of medicine. His daughter Hygieia was also a healer, and became a goddess of purification: her name is the root of the word "hygiene."
The staff of Asklepios had only one snake. The two-snake caduceus was an ancient symbol of peace treaties, trade and negotiation. It became associated with medicine when it was used as a printer's mark on medical texts. It is also the symbol of the planet Mercury in astrology.
