Aesculapius was a healer, son of Apollo and the mortal Corona, who
lived during the eleventh century BC, and became a god after Zeus
killed him with a thunderbolt for raising the dead.
The first shrine dedicated to Aesculapius was built in Athens in the fifth
century BC by Sophocles. Other shrines followed in rapid succession,
the most famous at Epidaurus, which became a major healing center.
Many were sited at sacred wells and springs. These shrines were
dedicated to healing and dreams, and were the principle vehicle for
obtaining relief or cure of illness of all kinds.
When Aesculapius appeared to the dreamers, he would tell them the
medicine they should use and any treatment that should be followed.
He can be invoked for healing and meaningful dreams, for good health
and for divination.
