Roman statue of Asclepius

Roman statue of Asclepius. The cult of the deity of Greek medicine, known as Asclepius, dates from the 6th century BC. Asclepius is represented in statues holding a staff around which a serpent twines, a symbol which survives today as a medical emblem. He was taught surgery and the use of drugs by Chiron the centaur. Asclepius was slain by a thunderbolt from Zeus because of complaints the ministrations of Asclepius were reducing the population of Hades (the underworld for the dead). This statue is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.

Principles of Geology (1830)

Principles of Geology. Frontispiece (left) and title page (right) of volume one (1830) of 'Principles of Geology' by the British geologist Charles Lyell (1797-1875). This work established the principle that geological changes acting over long time periods have shaped the landscape. An example is shown in the frontispiece, which shows the columns of the Temple of Serapis at Puzzuoli, Naples, Italy. The dark bands about a third of the way up the columns are due to molluscs burrowing into the marble when volcanic activity lowered the land, evidence that sea levels have risen and fallen over time.
