Hermes in Greek mythology is the god of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them of shepherds and cowherds of orators literature and poets of athletics of weights and measures and invention and commerce in general of the cunning of thieves and the messenger from the gods to humans. A lucky find was a hermaion. An interpreter who bridges the boundaries with strangers is a hermeneus. Hermes gives us our word 'hermeneutics' for the art of interpreting hidden meaning.
