EPIDAURUS
urbs Peloponnesi, Aesculapii templo celeberrima. Unde etiam Romani cum gravi pestilentia laborarent, consulroqueve oraculo iuberentur Aeseulapium Romam advehere, trire mem cum legatis ea de causa Epidaurum misêre. Verum cum Epidaurii Deum opiferum a se inviti dimitterent, ferunt illis cunctantibus ingentem angevem ad Romanorum triremem adnavigasse, sesequeve in puppi in gyrum complicuisse; quem illi Aesculapium arbitrati magna cum veneratione Romam advexêrunt. Vide Ovid. Met. l. 15. v. 736.

C. 1667. d. 6. Aprilis mire conquassata fuit et desolata, horrendo terrae motu, quo maxima pars civitatis periit.

Si qua salutifero gemini Chironis in antor
Herba, tholo quodcumque tibi Troiana recondit

Et Q. Serenus voto ad Adsculapium,
Tuqueve potens artis, reduces qui tradere vitas
Nosti, atque in caelum manes revocare sepultos,
Qui colis Aegeas, qui Pergama, quiqueve Epidaurum,

Nempe Aesculapius in hac urbe genitus habebatur, ex Apolline et Coronide, ut testatur Oranculum apud Pausan. l. 2. ubi et festum diem Atheniensibus fuisse Epidauria memorat. Inde Epidaurius, pro Medico celebri: Stat. iterum Theb. l. 3. v. 398.

Ubo Schol. vetus, ut ab Aeseulapio didicisse medicinam indicei, patriam ei Epidaurum adscripsit etc. Coeterum memorabilem in Epidaurii Templi foribus inscriptionem memorat hanc Clemens 5. Strom.
Α῾ηνὸν χρὴ νηοῖο ςθυωδέος εντὸς ἰόντα
Ε῎μμεναι
Esse decet castum, sancti qui limina templi
Ingreditur.
Nempe non Solis sacrificiis rem peragi, sed insuper opus esse, ut sacrisicaturi puri sint, et a secleribus abhorrentes, etiam Gentiles vidêrunt. Quam in rem non pauca congessit Brissonius Formul. l. 1. Vide Tob Pranner. System. Theol. Gentil. c. 15. §. 8.
