Gratuitous Skin, Masquerading as a Classical Education

(not entirely work-safe image ahead!)

HERMES was the great Olympian God of animal husbandry, roads, travel, hospitality, heralds, diplomacy, trade, thievery, language, writing, persuasion, cunning wiles, athletic contests, gymnasiums, astronomy, and astrology. He was also the personal agent and herald of Zeus, the king of the gods. Hermes was depicted as either a handsome and athletic, beardless youth, or as an older bearded man. His attributes included the herald’s wand or kerykeion (Latin caduceus), winged boots, and sometimes a winged travellers cap and chlamys cloak.

Hermes was the god of the birds of omen, birds despatched from heaven under the divine inspiration of prophetic Apollon. Only seers, under the god’s patronage, could distinguish birds of omen from those “idly-chattering” and interpret their divine messages.
Hermes was heaven’s herald and so was naturally regarded as the source of those other winged messengers of heaven – the birds of omen.

  1. Glad you furnished him with a scarf as he’d only get cold wearing next to nothing and flying over snow topped mountains on his way to Olympus 🙂
