Asclepius' statue

This marble statue of Asclepius can be seen in the "Braccio Nuovo" of the Vatican Museums, Rome. It is a Roman interpretation (2nd century AD) of a 4th century BC Greek original, which was found on the Quirinal Hill in 17841.


When William Osler visited the Vatican Museums, in February 1909, he took notice of this statue. A photo-postcard of it, presented by Osler himself, is currently preserved in The Osler Library Prints Collection2.
