WHAT DOES PANACEA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

panacea

Panacea

In Greek mythology, Panacea was a goddess of Universal remedy. She was the daughter of Asclepius and Epione. Panacea and her four sisters each performed a facet of Apollo's art: Panacea, Hygieia, Iaso, Aceso, and Aglæa/Ægle. Panacea also had four brothers – Podaleirus, one of the two kings of Tricca, who had a flair for diagnostics, and Machaon, the other king of Tricca, who was a master surgeon; Telesphoros, who devoted his life to serving Asclepius; and Aratus, her half-brother, who was a Greek hero and the patron/liberator of Sicyon. Panacea was said to have a poultice or potion with which she healed the sick. This brought about the concept of the panacea in medicine, a substance meant to cure all diseases. The term is also used figuratively as something intended to completely solve a large, multi-faceted problem. A river in Thrace/Moesia was named after the goddess, and is still known as the river Zlatna Panega.
