Description:

Hygieia:  was one of the Asclepiadae; the sons and daughters of the god of medicine, Asclepius, and his wife Epione. Hygieia was the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness and hygiene.

Asclepius: is a hero and god of medicine in ancient Greek religion and mythology. He is the son of Apollo and Coronis, or Arsinoe, or of Apollo alone. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts; his daughters are Hygieia ("Hygiene", the goddess of cleanliness), Iaso (the goddess of recuperation from illness), Aceso (the goddess of the healing process), Aegle (the goddess of good health), Panacea (the goddess of universal remedy), and several sons.

Epione:  is the wife of Asclepius. Her name derives from the word ηπιος (epios, "soothing"), and she was probably a personification of the care needed for recovery. With Asclepius, she had two sons, Machaon and Podalirius, who are mentioned in the Iliad of Homer. The Suda lists Aceso, Aglaea, Hygieia, Iaso, and Panacaea as her daughters.[
