Caracalla, 28 January 198 - 8 April 217 A.D., Augusta Traiana, Thrace
|Augusta| |Traiana|, |Caracalla,| |28| |January| |198| |-| |8| |April| |217| |A.D.,| |Augusta| |Traiana,| |Thrace|, Asklepios was the son of Apollo and a mortal woman named Coronis. Apollo killed Coronis for being unfaithful but rescued the unborn Asklepios from her womb. Apollo carried the baby to the centaur Chiron who raised Asclepius and instructed him in the art of medicine. In return for some kindness, a snake taught him secret knowledge of healing. Asclepius became so proficient as a healer that he surpassed both Chiron and his father, Apollo. Asclepius was even able to evade death and to bring the dead back to life. Zeus killed him to restore balance to the human population but later resurrected Asclepios as a god to prevent a feud with Apollo. Zeus instructed Asclepios to never revive the dead without his approval.
