Votive Offerings to Asklepios (3)

Votive offerings found near the Asklepieion at Corinth. Probably dedicated to the deity for healing.

The Asklepieion is a place where people came to be healed of their diseases. The complex included dining rooms, bathing facilities, dormitories, a theater, and other structures.

Asklepios was actually a deified Greek physician. The symbol of Asklepios is an entwined snake (the same as the modern medical symbol).
