AIGLE (or Aegle) was the goddess of radiant good health. She was an attendant of her father, the medicine-god Asklepios. Her sisters included Panakeia (All-Cure), Iaso (Remedy) and Hygeia (Good-Health).

According to Virgil and Pausanias she is the most beautiful of the Naiads, daughter of Zeus and Neaera (Virg. Eclog. vi. 20), by whom Helios begot the Charites. (Paus. ix. 35. § 1.)
