In ancient Greece and Rome, an asclepeion (or asklepieion,Greek: Ἀσκληπιεῖον -Ἀσκλαπιεῖον in Doric dialect, Latin aesculapīum) was a healing temple, sacred to the god Asclepius. Asclepius may first have been worshipped as a hero in Trikka, Thessaly, which ancient mythographers generally regarded as the place of his birth, but to date archaeological excavations have yet to uncover his sanctuary there. Epidauros, on the other hand, was the first place to worship Asclepius as a god, beginning sometime in the 400s BC.
