New Prayer Card: Salus by Grace Palmer

Here is the newest prayer card, which will be available on my etsy store next week. This completes the Roman medical triad of Asklepios, Hygeia, and Salus. These Deities were extremely popular and had extensive cultus amongst both the medical corps of the Roman military and the common people too. (There are other healing deities that received cultus in ancient Rome, but these three were the most popular amongst the military). 

Here is the Salus card by G. Palmer (I think it’s one of my favorites!).

Once this card is back from the printer, I will be offering the three (Asklepios, Hygeia, and Salus) as a set, in addition to individually. The cards normally cost $4/each but I’ll be offering this set for $9 plus .50 cents shipping and handling. If you are interested in purchasing this in advance, please contact me at krasskova at gmail.com. Otherwise it will be available on etsy next week.

  1. Strikingly beautiful! She is sadly neglected amongst healing Deities…but then again–and I wonder if this might just be a property of most Indo-European healing Deities–there are a ton of them, many of whom are children of Asklepios.

    Anyway, another to add to my “to get” list for October! 😉
