Asclepius (Greek Ἀσκληπιός, transliterated Asklēpiós; Latin Aesculapius) is the demigod of medicine and healing in ancient Greek mythology. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts, while his daughters Hygieia, Meditrina, Iaso, Aceso, Aglæa/Ægle and Panacea (literally, "all-healing") symbolize the forces of cleanliness, medicine and healing, respectively
Asclepius was the ancient Greek god of medicine.

A greek god of medicine and healing. He had five daughters and the cock was sacred to him. They often sacrificed it at his alter. He started asclepians which are like greek beauty spas. They put him into the stars and gave him snakes for presents once he had died and worshiped him as a god. He cures the sick in dreams and he had a long wooden stick and a large snake.
