Vejovis was a Roman god associated with healing and the Greek Asclepius but with other uncertain and mysterious attributes. He was worshipped mostly in Rome and at Bovillae in Latium. Depicted as a young man, holding a bunch of arrows, pilum, or fulmen in his hand, he was accompanied by a goat. To avert plagues, a she-goat was sacrificed to Vejovis each spring.
