Transcript of Hermes, the Greek God

Hermes Hermes roman name was Mercury.
He was born in a cave on Mt. Cyllene. He was son of Zeus and Maia.
You might have thought that Hermes had a wife or even wives, but he didn’t. On the other hand he did have many lovers divine and mortal. So he was what you could say a heart breaker. Hermes’s symbols were caduceus and winged boots.
He was the fastest out of all the gods, and his job was messenger of the gods. Hermes strengths were clever, bold, determined, athletic, a powerful magician. He was honored as god of sleep and was known for his cunning and shrewdness. It was said that he could charm monsters with his flute or lyre. He also is said to have invented the lyre from a turtle shell.
