Hygieia is related to Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine
Hygieia is related to Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine. He is the son of Apollo, the Olympian god. Hygieia is often called the daughter of Asclepius and his wife Epione. Hygieia and her four sisters performed one aspect of Apollo art: Hygieia (health, cleanliness and hygiene), a panacea, Iaso, Aceso, and Aglaia (beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence and decoration). Hygieia’s worship is closely related to Asclepius’ worship. Although Asclepios is more directly related to treatment, she is related to preventing disease and keeping healthy. In the 2nd century AD, the famous traveler Pausanias provided a narrative based on what he saw and heard in Greece. In his encyclopedia “Description of Greece”, which was written about 160-174 AD, Pausanias described the statues where he met Asclepius and Hygieia in Tegea. In addition to the statues representing these two figures, the combination of hygiene in the worship of Asclepios can also be seen in the medical images on many ancient Greek and Roman coins. The close relationship between Hygieia and Asclepius shows that she plays an important role in the worship of Asclepius. Have a look at this Hygieia bronze statue.

The main temples of Hygieia are located in Epidaurus…
The main temples of Hygieia are located in Epidaurus, Corinth, Cos and Pergamon. In the Asclepeion of Titane. Greek historian Pausanias commented that the statue of Hygieia was covered with women’s hair and Babylonian clothes. After the devastating plague in Athens, and after the Roman plague in 293 BC. It was not until the Delphi oracle recognized her as an independent goddess that the worship of the god of health began to spread. Ariphron, a poet from the Greek city state of Sicyon, wrote a famous hymn in the 4th century BC to celebrate Hygieia. The Hygieia bronze statue was created by Scopas, Bryaxis and Timotheus, but there is no clear description of what they look like. In the surviving depictions, she is often depicted as a young woman who is feeding a serpent wrapped around her, or drinking from a jar she carries with her. These attributes were later adopted by the Gaul Roman healing goddess Silona. Hygieia was modified by the Romans as Valetudo, the goddess of personal health. There are some arguments about whether Hygieia can also be equated with the Roman social welfare goddess Salus. However, this has not been fully confirmed… Aongking also has more Greek sculptures besides this Hygieia bronze statue. Welcome to contact Aongking.
