Few peoples in the world today worship snakes although Hinduism & Buddhism venerate them to some extent. Snake worship was more common in the Pre-Christian Ancient World. The Paphalagonians in Asia Minor worshiped a snake-god called Zalmoxis. It has a technical name in English "Ophidolatry" but few people use it.
Thank you Ilias, Panayiota, and Costas. I should have said beforehand that I need the translation in Roman letters since Greek letters will show up as Adobe characters. Otherwise, I'm sure Ilias was right. I chose Costas because he had the closest translation to what I was looking for. But Panayiota is right too as far as the technical word for it is concerned. Perhaps it was not a very fair question and in that case I'm sorry.
