A bust of Hermes on top of a large cuboidal stone, with a carving of a human penis in the middle.
A painting of Hermes ferrying the dead to the underworld.
A bust of Hermes on top of a large cuboidal stone, with a carving of a human penis in the middle.
A bustling market. An intersection of forest paths.
A carving of Hermes guiding someone to the underworld.

And, when all elſe is ſaid and done — i will take Thy hand.

A hymn to Hermes

Hermes, draw near, and to my pray'r incline, Angel of Zeus, and Maia's Son divine;
Studious of contests, Ruler of mankind, with heart almighty, and a prudent mind.
Celestial Messenger, of various skill, Whose pow'rful arts could watchful Argus kill:
With winged feet, ’tis Thine thro' air to course, O Friend of man, and Prophet of discourse:
Great Life-supporter, to rejoice is Thine, in arts gymnastic, and in fraud divine:
With pow'r endued all language to explain, of care the Loos'ner, and the Source of gain.
Whose hand contains of blameless peace the rod, Corucian, blessed, profitable God;
Of various speech, whose aid in works we find, and in necessities to mortals kind:
Dire weapon of the tongue, which men revere, be present, Hermes, and Thy suppliant hear;
Assist my works, conclude my life with peace, give graceful speech, and me memory's increase.
