Asclepius, the son of Apollo, was the god of medicine and healing in Greco-Roman mythology. He is characteristically depicted with thick, wavy locks and a full, curling beard. Interestingly, Asclepius shares many facial characteristics with representations of Jupiter. Both deities exhibit a serene demeanor that belies a paternal compassion fitting for these male divinities. For a similar representation of the god see no. 47 in B. Holtzmann, "Asklepios," LIMC, Vol II.
