Aesculapius and Telesphorus on coins

Recommended Posts

An interesting thread from cointalk.com dealing with Asclepius (Greek) also known as Aesculapius (Latin), with his sidekick Telesphorus.

In ancient Greek religionTelesphorus(Greek: Τελεσφόρος Telesphoros) was a minor child-god of healing. He was a possible son of Asclepius and frequently accompanied his sister Hygieia. He was depicted as a dwarf whose head was always covered with a cowl hood or cap. “
