Rod of Asclepius

In Greek mythology, the rod of asclepius represents the healing of the sick through medicine. It consisted of a snake coiled around a wooden staff, and was a principal symbol of Asclepius, the son of Apollo. It is often confused with the caduceus, the staff of Mercury (Hermes). However, the caduceus has two snakes coiled around a staff, often with a pair of wings at the top.
