A Medical Essay of History of Medical Symbols: Asclepius, Caduceus & Simurgh as Medical Symbols. At the present time, the rod of Asclepius, with its entwined single serpent and the Caduceus of Hermes, with the double serpents capped with a wing, are used universally as medical symbols. It thus seems reasonable to learn that since in Iranian history there has been no association between the serpent and the practice of medicine, as there had been in Greece and Rome, an image of the Simurgh as a medical symbol would be more appropriate to consider. Thus, I have endeavored in this E- Medical Essay to review the history of Asclepius and the Caduceus of Hermes as medical symbols and also to review briefly the myth of the bird Simurgh in its main three phases in Iranian history and its relation to medicine along with plenty of relevant illustrations.
