The priests took in and raised orphans on occasion. One of these was Chrysis, who grew up into a wise and knowledgeable priestess of Hera in their care. However, she was approached by masked people whose ideas she found more appealing, and begun to fulfill their goals using the priests of Asklepios.
In the 440s BCE, Myrrine, the daughter of the late Spartan king Leonidas I, sought the help of the priests for her badly-injured baby. The priests did what they could, bathed and fed her and did whatever they could think of for the baby, but in the end the baby was deemed simply too injured to survive. The woman was told to leave the baby's fate to the gods, and after saying goodbye to the child, she left him at the Altar of Apollo Maleatas, whence Chrysis secretly took him under her wing.
The priests attempted to return the baby's blanket to the woman, but she refused it.
Following that incident, the priest who had the most closely interacted with the Spartan woman and her baby, Mydon, talked often about it, to whoever would listen. Until Chrysis made him cut out his own tongue to prove his loyalty, and to prevent the story from reaching ears it shouldn't.
During the Peloponnesian War, Chrysis warned the priests not to talk to the "Eagle-bearing misthios" Kassandra, on the pain of death. Some of them, like Timoxenos, resisted this order and tried to be careful about their dealings with her when Kassandra reached the sanctuary, looking for information about her mother and her brother.
The priests kept records of all who came to the Sanctuary of Asklepios looking for a cure for whatever ailed them. These records were carved in stone so that people could praise the god for his healing ways.
