Born in a cave located in Cyliene of Arcadia, Hermes climbed out of the cradle and stole 50 nandies of Apollo soon after he was born. He was so smart. In order to hide the trace of the 50 nandies, he tied up some branches and leaves on his and the Nandies’ feet and drove the nandies moving backwards. Later, he baked two most fertile Nandies and then divided them into 13 pieces. Leaving one piece to himself, he devoted the other 12 pieces to the twelve Olympians in Olympus. So since long before, Hermes became the god which many thieves adored. When he came back to the cave, he killed one big tortoise, and made a Tres with the turtle shell. Afterwards, he sent this Tres to Apollo for the compensation for the 50 Nandies.
Hermes represents for the energetic youth, with Petasus on his head, chlamys on his body, Kerykeion in his hand, coin bags on his waist and pteroeis pedila on his feet. He is the most honest Messenger of Zeus. He helps Zeus to send out messages and finish the tasks which Zeus assigned. Hermes is not only quick off the mark, but also versatile. He invented letters, astronomy and Mathematics. Besides of Tres, he also designed piccolo.
