016 | HERMES

Hermes is the great messenger of the gods in Greek mythology and additionally as a guide to the
Underworld. An Olympian god, he is also the patron of boundaries and of the travelers who travel
across them, of shepherds and cowherds, of the cunning of thieves and liars, of orators and wit,
of literature and poets, of athletics and sports, of weights and measures, of invention, and
of commerce in general. Hermes was identified with the Roman god Mercury, who, though
inherited from the Etruscans, developed many similar characteristics, such as being the patron
of commerce.
