HYGIEIA was the goddess of good health. She was a daughter and attendant of the medicine-god Asklepios (Asclepius), and a companion of the goddess Aphrodite. Her sisters included Panakeia (Panacea) (Cure-All) and Iaso (Remedy).

Hygeia's opposite number were the Nosoi (Spirits of Disease). Her Roman name was Salus.

In classical sculpture she was represented as a woman holding a large serpent in her arms.
