Asklepion

It is a temple ground a bit away from the city Pergamon  . It was dedicated to the God Asklepius the Healing God, son of Apollo, killed by Zeus. Nevertheless, he could not heal himself.

It was not just a temple. It was a healing complex including a temple, a library (we should not forget that we talk about Pergamon  , a centre for learning), a theatre, a hospital, latrines and healing pools.
