Traveling A Hermes Story... Hermes, merriest of the Olympians, was the god of shepherds, travelers, merchants, thieves, and all others who lived by their wits. His mother Maia, a Titan's daughter, lived in a tunnel on comfy Mount Cyllene, a tunnel so deep that Hera never knew that Maia was one of Zeus's wives. Maia had therefore given birth to her son Hermes in peace. Hermes was very valuable, even for a god... A Hermes Story... His mother had hardly wrapped him and put him into a holder when he began to think of mischief. As soon as she had fallen asleep, he got out of his wrappings and quietly walked out of the cave... A Hermes Story... At the dark of night, Hermes paid a visit to fifty of Apollo's prize cattle and stole them. Apollo didn't even notice, but Apollo liked music more than his cattle.
