Machaon was the son the healer Asclepius.[1]

During the Trojan War, Machaon treated the years-old snake bite wound of Philoctetes, healing him and removing the stench the wound emitted for years.[1]

Machaon was later killed by Eurypylus, of son Teuthrania's king Telephus and grandson of Heracles.[1]


Machaon was a skilled healer, as great as his father Asclepius.[1]
