Asclepius - Definition


Definition


In Greek mythology, Asclepius is one of the sons of Apollo, and is the god of medicine, his name corresponding to Aesculapius in Roman mythology. Asclepius was struck down by Zeus' lightning for giving life to the dead. Asclepius healed the ill in a cave in Epidaurus. He is generally represented by a staff around which a snake is coiled. Aclepius inspired an association of doctors, among which was Hippocrates, to practice medicine. His name is mentioned in the Hippocratic Oath, which doctors still swear by today.
