Asclepius, god of Medicine and Healing.

Asclepius was a Greek hero who later became the Greek god of medicine and healing. The son of Apollo and Coronis. He was worshipped throughout the Greek world but his most famous sanctuary was located in Epidaurus which is situated in the northeastern Peloponnese. The main attribute of Asclepius is a physician's staff with a snake wrapped around it; this is how he was distinguished in the art of healing, and his attribute still survives to this day as the symbol of the modern medical profession.
