Epidauros had a temple dedicated to Asklepios where the sacred snakes were kept. It was a small temple developed during the 4C and 3C BC in the Doric style and designed by the architect Theodotos. A statue made of gold and ivory of Asklepios seated on a throne with his left hand placed on the head of a snake once stood inside.

      The discovery of the Epidaurus theater has been important both for archaeology and architecture. While most of the remaining ancient theaters have suffered partial destruction or undergone reconstruction, the Epidaurus theater has remained intact down through the centuries because it was safely covered by more than 20 feet [6 m] of soil.
