Sample text

A fourth-century colossal head of Asklepios was found in a cave on Melos, which also contained a statue base and figurines of Hygieia, as well as a votive bone inscribed with the names ofboth. 23 In Athens there was a sacrifice for Asklepios and Hygieia on the day of the Dissoteria. 24 Votive thank offerings are commonly dedicated to the pair. This is not to argue that Hygieia's importance is equal to that of Asklepios-on the contrary, her cult is almost entirely dependent on his. The point is that while we think of Asklepios as an individual healing figure, the experience of the person actually participating in the cult would have been of a pair or a family group.

A striking exception to this rule is a cup by the Kodros painter, dated 450-425. 60 It shows five divine couples in the familiar banqueting pose. In the central position are Persephone and Pluto, who holds a large cornucopia, the symbol of his ability to grant abundance.

Moreover, the few inscriptions we have show quite clearly that 42 43 Heroines in Votive Reliefs Heroines in Votive Reliefs the Totenmahl reliefs were dedicated primarily to heroes, and sometimes to deities with similar cults, such as chthonic Dionysos, Zeus Meilichios or Philios, and Asklepios.
