The Staff (or Rod) of Asclepius is a symbol of ancient Greek mythology. It is formed with a winged staff in the middle with a single staff ascending it. In Greek mythology, the Staff was wielded by the Asclepius, the god of healing and medicine whose name actually translates to mean “to cut open”.
According to legend, Asclepius was cut from his mother’s womb while she burned because of infidelity to her husband, the formidable Apollo. Because of this and the previously mentioned reason, temples dedicated to healing are named after this god, called asclepieia.
