The Asclepion, the healing center of Pergamum (one of the Seven Churches of Revelation 2), was world famous – named after the healing god Asclepius (one of his titles was "savior!). During the Roman period emperors such as Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius, and Caracalla visited it. People came to the Asclepion for “holistic” treatment that included recreation, theater, music, sports, fasting, late–night runs in the nude, mudpacks, cold and hot baths, potions, herbs, dream interpretation, etc.
