TELESPHORUS

ΤΕΛΕΣΦΟΡΟΣ

That is, "the completing," is the name of a medical divinity who is mentioned now and then in connection with Asclepius. Pausanias (ii. 11. § 7) says : "In the sanctuary of Asclepius at Titane sacrifices are offered to Euamerion, to whom a statue is there erected; and, if I am not mistaken, this Euamerion is called at Pergamus Telesphorus, and at Epidaurus Acesis."
