Pergamon, capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon under the Attalid dynasty of kings was famed for its impressive monuments. Chief amongst which was the “Sanctuary of Asclepius”, the god of healing. In this place people with health problems could bathe in the water of the sacred spring, and in the patients’ dreams Asclepius would appear in a vision to tell them how to cure their illness. Galen, the most famous doctor in the ancient Roman Empire and personal physician of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, worked in the Asclepium for many years.
