Asclepius

Asclepius or Hepius is a hero and god of medicine in ancient Greek religion and mythology. He of Apollo alone. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts, he was associated with the Egyptian Imhotep. He shared with Apollo the epithet Paean; the rod of Asclepius, a snake-entwined staff, remains a symbol of medicine today. Those physicians and attendants who served this god were known as the Therapeutae of Asclepius; the etymology of the name is unknown. In his revised version of Frisk's Griechisches etymologisches Wörterbuch, R. S. P. Beekes gives this summary of the different attempts: "H. Grégoire in Asklépios, Apollon Smintheus et Rudra 1949, explains the name as'the mole-hero', connecting σκάλοψ, ἀσπάλαξ'mole' and refers to the resemblance of the Tholos in Epidauros and the building of a mole, but the variants of Asklepios and those of the word for'mole' do not agree. The name is typical for Pre-Greek words. I think that the -σ- renders an original affricate, lost before the -γ-.

Szemerényi's etymology from Hitt. assula-'well-being' and piya-'give' cannot be correct, as it does not explain the velar."Beekes suggested a Pre-Greek proto-form *Atyklap-. Asclepius was the son of Apollo and, according to the earliest accounts, a mortal woman named Coronis; when she displayed infidelity by sleeping with a mortal named Ischys, Apollo came to know this with his prophetic powers and killed Ischys. Coronis was killed by Artemis for being unfaithful to Apollo and was laid out on a funeral pyre to be consumed, but Apollo rescued the child by cutting him from Coronis's womb. According to Delphian tradition, Asclepius was born in the temple of Apollo, with Lachesis acting as a midwife and Apollo relieving the pains of Coronis. Apollo named the child after Aegle. Phoenician tradition maintains. According to Roman version, having learned about Coronis' betrayal with the mortal Ischys through his raven, killed her with his arrows. Before breathing her last, she revealed to Apollo, he unsuccessfully tried to save her.

At last, he removed their son safely from her belly. In yet another version, Coronis, pregnant with Apollo's child, had to accompany her father to Peloponnesos, she had kept her pregnancy hidden from her father. In Epidaurus, she exposed him on a mountain called Nipple; the child was given milk by one of the goats that pastured about the mountain, was guarded by the watch-dog of the herd. Aresthanas, the owner of goats and the guard dogs found the child; as he came near, he saw lightning that flashed from the child, thinking of it to be a sign of divine, he left the child alone. Asclepius was taken by Apollo. Apollo named the rescued baby Asclepius and reared him for a while and taught him many things about medicine. However, Asclepius had his formal education under the centaur Chiron who instructed him in the art of medicine, it is said that in return for some kindness rendered by Asclepius, a snake licked Asclepius's ears clean and taught him secret knowledge. Asclepius bore. Other version states that when Asclepius was commanded to restore the life of Glaucus, he was confined in a secret prison.

While pondering on what he should do, a snake crept near his staff. Lost in his thoughts, Asclepius unknowingly killed it by hitting it again with his staff. Another snake came there with a herb in its mouth, placed it on the head of dead snake, which soon came back to life. Seeing this, Asclepius used the same herb. A species of non-venomous pan-Mediterranean serpent, the Aesculapian snake is named for the god, he was called Hepius but received his popular name of Asclepius after he cured Ascles, ruler of Epidaurus who suffered an incurable ailment in his eyes. Asclepius became so proficient as a healer that he surpassed his father, Apollo. Asclepius was therefore able to evade death and to bring others back to life from the brink of death and beyond; this caused an influx of human beings and Zeus resorted to killing him to maintain balance in the numbers of the human population. At some point, Asclepius was among those. Asclepius was married to Epione, with whom he had five daughters: Hygieia, Aceso and Aegle, three sons: Machaon and Telesphoros.

He sired a son, with Aristodama. Asclepius once started bringing back to life the dead people like Tyndareus, Glaucus, Hymenaeus and others. Others say he brought Hi
