Abstract:   The sanctuary of the healing god, Asklepios, was connected to an adjacent fountain of Lerna in antiquity. This detailed study of the topography and architecture of these two monuments is complemented by a catalogue of the offerings and various associated objects. Most striking among these are the terracotta legs, arms, and other parts of the body that were dedicated by patients. While the ruins of the buildings date primarily to the Hellenistic period, the ex-votos are almost all earlier.
