|Title:||Hermes||Contributor(s):||Dillon, Matthew P (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/21375||Abstract:||Hermes was an ancient Greek god, known from the LINEAR B tablets. In art, he was depicted wearing winged sandals to speed him in his main role as messenger for the gods, and was usually shown with his 'kerykeion' (caduceus), a staff which messengers also carried; he was their patron. He was also the god of thieves, trickery and animal husbandry, with his most famous exploit (recounted in the HOMERIC HYMN to Hermes) being to steal fifty of APOLLO's cattle on the very day he was born.||Publication Type:||Entry In Reference Work||Source of Publication:||The Routledge Encyclopedia of Ancient Mediterranean Religions, p. 415-415||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||New York, United States of America||ISBN:||9780415831970
