Ophiuchus was said to be counted between Scorpio and Sagittarius. But it was discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.
Taken from the Greek word for 'serpent-bearer', the sign is portrayed by a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations proposed by Ptolemy in the second century. It was earlier known as Serpentarius, a Latin word for serpent-bearer.
