Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected. So, what kind of creature is Ophiuchus?
The illustrations that have emerged old prints from shortly after the time of Gutenberg, it seems portray some sort of heavily muscled person holding on with difficulty to a veritable anaconda in the sky. There are various myths attached to the constellation. A third I have come up with on my own. The first is that of Asklepios in Latin, Aesculapius, which has somehow become acceptable in English as Asclepius , who was, as the old Greek stories often go, the offspring of a tragic match.

His mother, impregnated by the god Apollo, started a dalliance with someone else. The poor woman was set on fire and her child ripped from her womb Asklepios etymologically meaning "to be cut out".
The infant was given over to be raised by the good and wise centaur Chiron. He grew to be wise himself, able to cure the sick and raise the dead.
What Is the Ophiuchus Sign and What Are These Signs Like?
The serpent, already a symbol of wisdom and its goddess Athena, was associated with Asklepios' rejuvenating skills because it could renew itself, becoming "young" again by shedding its old skin. But the fates and the gods did not like the idea of a human with the ability to grant other humans the gift of eternal life. So Zeus struck him dead with a thunderbolt. Because he warned his fellow citizens of Troy not to let into their walled citadel the giant wooden horse left behind by the Greeks. The goddess Athena she of the snakes sent enormous serpents to strangle and kill the priest and his sons.
The Trojans interpreted it as a sign that it was all right to let the gift horse in without looking into its contents.
The rest is, again, tragedy. The key to both tales is the snake, symbol of wisdom and of all the knowledge hidden beneath the Earth.

One of the great sites of prophecy in the ancient Greek world was Pythia, from where we get our word python. And so, I have a third scenario to help explain who Ophiuchus is.
It isn't a story told very often, but while not perfectly matching the "snake holder" description, it involves wisdom and snakes. Tiresias was considered the wisest of men, and he was summoned before the gods because Zeus and his sister-spouse Hera were quarreling.
