As an infant, Asclepius, the son of Apollo, was entrusted to the care of Chiron, the wisest of the Centaurs, who instructed the boy in the art of healthy mending. When Asclepius grew up he became the physician of the gods, and because of his medical knowledge was called paeon - helper. When Pluto was wounded by Hercules, Asclepius received from his grandmother, Leto, the goddess of darkness, a plant with which to help support Pluto. In Asclepius' honor, the plant was called peony (Paeonia officinalis). From Greek antiquity to the Middle Ages the roots and seeds of the peony were considered among the most potent herbs.
