Joint Issue: Joint Issue Hellas-Spain `Asclepios`

Asclepios - Joint issue Hellaas Spain

Asclepios, the demigod of medicine, is one of the most interesting figures of ancient Greek mythology.

He was thought to have divine origins, as an offspring of one of Apollo's numerous affairs, while he was taught medicine by the centaur Chiron. Asclepios laid the foundations of medicine, which were later established by Hippocrates.

He was widely worshipped throughout the ancient world, as is indicated by the sanctuaries and places of healing built in his honour, called "asclepieion". Our serach for the cult of Asclepios leads us to Spain and specifically to the town square of Neapoli, where one can still see the ruins of his sanctuary and a copy of a statute of Asclepios. the town was originally founded by Rhodians in around 550 AD, under the name Emborio.
