The ASKLEPIAN versus the CADUCEUS: one snake or two serpents

The ASKLEPIAN

  • In Greek mythology, the Rod of Asclepius is also known as the asklepian.
  • It is sometimes also spelled Asklepios or Aesculapius.
  • The symbol is a single serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine.
  • The Asklepian depicts only one snake.
  • The Asklepian symbol is used in modern times, and is associated with medicine and health care.
  • The Asklepian is frequently confused with the staff of the god Hermes, the caduceus.

The CADUCEUS

  • The caduceus is the traditional symbolic staff of Hermes Mercury, the messenger god.
  • This symbolic staff is borne by heralds in general, and Iris, the messenger of Hera, also carried a caduceus.
  • The design features two snakes around an often winged short staff.
  • It is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine instead of the Rod of Asclepius, especially in the United States of America.
  • The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with commerce, negotiation, eloquence, and trickery.
  • The symbol is also used to represent printing, the planet Mercury and the elemental metal Mercury.
  • Tangential association of the caduceus with medicine has occurred through the ages.
  • It was sometimes associated with alchemy and wisdom.

ABOUT THE ALLOY

  • We don't know the exact precise composition of the foreign bronze metal alloy used to make this.
  • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
  • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
  • Using 100% of any metal might make the product entirely too soft to endure.
  • Magnets will stick to ferrous metals.
  • Magnets attract to ferrous metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, certain steels and other alloys.
  • Brass, aluminum, copper, and most stainless steels, however, are non ferrous, and magnets are not attracted to them.
  • For more information, please visit your nearest metallurgist, or geologist, or ask at your local library.
