Iaso

Goddess of recuperation from illness

That is, Recovery, a daughter of Asclepius or Amphiaraus, and sister of Hygieia, was worshipped as the goddess of recovery; and in the temple of Amphiaraus at Oropus a part of the altar was dedicated to her, in common with Aphrodite, Panaceia, Hygieia, and Athena Paeonia. (Paus. i. 34. par. 2; Aristoph. Plut. 701, with the Schol.; Hesych. s. v.)

Unlike her sister Hygieia, she showed up when health was compromised and restored it.
