Arrow or the Caduceus as the symbol of the doctor

It is traditional to use the symbol of the Caduceus to represent medicine. This symbol derives from Hermes or Mercury, the winged messenger, and is a staff intertwined by two snakes. Greek mythology suggests that Hermes came across two fighting snakes and, throwing his wand at them, they became intertwined and stopped fighting.
