 Asclepius’ temples are called asclepeia and are centres of healing as well as worship. Many mortals come to these temples sick or injured and make sacrifices and offerings at the altar. Afterwards the patient spends the night in the holiest part of the temple, the abaton. Come the morning, the patient reports any dreams and these guide the priests to the cure for the patient. If the cure works, the nature of the malady, the cure and details of the patient are recorded on stone tablets and the patient makes another sacrifice to Asclepius. Asclepius’ temples are called asclepeia and are centres of healing as well as worship.

 Most rituals at an asclepeion involve using non-venomous snakes. These are not sacrificed but crawl freely around the dorms where the sick and injured sleep. They are considered to be his servants or messengers and their movements are frequently invoked as omens. Most rituals at an asclepeion involve using non-venomous snakes.
