Today ancient hospital in Ephesus is somewhere in the middle of Ephesus Ancient City. Hospital is a three-roomed building and pointed with a road sign having a snake on it. Snake or better to say ”God Asclepios” was the symbol of medicine in the ancient world. The Romans learned a great deal from the Ancient Greeks. They first came into contact with the Greeks in about 500 BC By 146 B.C. part of Greece had become a province of the Roman Empire and by 27 B.C., the Romans were in control not only of Greece but of Greek-speaking lands around the Mediterranean. They used the ideas of the Greeks but they did not simply copy them. Greek ideas they found impractical they ignored and it seems that the Romans were keener on things that would lead to the direct improvement of the quality of life.
