In Greek mythology, Epione (Greek: Ἠπιόνη) was the goddess of soothing of pain; in fact, her name actually means soothing. She was the wife of Asclepius and mother of Panacea, the goddess of medicines, and Hygieia, the goddess of health. She was probably also the mother of the famous physicians Machaon and Podalirius, who are mentioned in the Iliad of Homer.
