WHAT DOES HYGEIA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Hygeia

Hygieia

In Greek and Roman mythology, Hygieia, was the daughter of the god of medicine, Asclepius, and Epione. She was the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness and sanitation. Hygieia and her five sisters each performed a facet of Apollo's art: Hygieia, Panacea, Iaso, Aceso, and Aglæa/Ægle. Hygieia also played an important part in her father's cult. While her father was more directly associated with healing, she was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health. Her name is the source of the word "hygiene". She was imported by the Romans as the Goddess Valetudo, the goddess of personal health, but in time she started to be increasingly identified with the ancient Italian goddess of social welfare, Salus.
