Ophiuchus is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name is from the Greek ???????? "serpent-bearer", and it is commonly represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations. It was formerly referred to as Serpentarius (English pronunciation: /?s?rp?n?t??ri?s/; also Anguitenens), a Latin word meaning the same as its current name.
