Although not one of the major gods of literary mythology, Asklepios and his daughter Hygeia were some of the more popular gods worshiped in ancient Greece and later Rome. The evidence for this particular cult is largely found through archaeological excavation and finds at Epidauros and elsewhere certainly show the great wealth and scope of this god's influence. In this paper de Waele gives the excavation report for a medium-sized Asklepeion near the northern border of the Corinthian demos, providing a perspective on the smaller local temples of Asklepios that did not enjoy the huge popularity of sites like Epidauros. The report includes photographs, sketches, and a detailed site history that will provide those interested in ancient temple medicine and sacred precincts with valuable information.
