Herm

Herm

Hermes was the winged messenger of the gods. He was also the god of the crossroads, sacred to travelers, beggars, thieves, merchants, spies, prostitutes, minstrels, and itinerant poets. The Herm stood at the crossroads as a marker. Alcibiades, a student of Socrates, in a time of war went around knocking the cock off the gods. For that Socrates was convicted of teaching students to dishonor the gods, and as you know he was made to drink poison and die.
