The First Caduceus is a Greek artifact housed in The Library. It is a staff on which two serpents are entwined.
Real Life CounterpartEdit
Cadeceus was the name of the staff owned either by Apollo, the Greek god of the Sun, prophecies and music.
Apollo later gave the staff to his brother, Hermes, god of commerce, as a sign of friendship, after the latter returned the cattle he stole.
- It is considered a symbol of commerce, just like its owner, Hermes, was.
- People usually use the Cadeceus as a symbol of Medicine, although this is the role of the Rod of Asclepius, which has one snake instead of two.
