HYGIEIA is the Greek Goddess of health and cleanliness. She is the daughter of Asklepios, God of medicine and healing. Hygieia is usually depicted holding a snake, which drinks from a cup held by her. Snakes have long been a symbol of healing and rejuvenation--as the snake sheds its skin, so the human body can survive disease. Hygieia's name is the source of our modern word "hygiene".
