Abstract

Historical truth is that among peoples there have always been people with impaired hearing. As the most striking evidence of that is the cult of Greek god Asclepious (in Greek Asclepious, in Latin Esculap) whose temples were scattered throughout Greece (1), as well as in Epidaurus (the old name of Cavtat) (2) and in Heraclea near Bitola (3). Both in Epidaurus and Heraclea, almost identical clay tiles with ears shown on them were found which some ill people had offered as gifts in gratitude to god Asclepius. They were so called votive tiles-offerings (in Latin voto, votare = gift, to give a gift) contributed to the temple. There was no written text on them, in contrast to similar ones found in Egypt 3,500 years ago (4). That was the oldest data on deaf people existence on the territory of Macedonia.
