Hermes (Mercury in Rome) in Greek mythology is the son of Zeus and the nymph Maya, the messenger and herald of the gods, who guides guests on Olympus, accompanies heroes on their adventures and communicates divine messages to mortals. Consequently, he is also the patron god of travellers, as well as of merchants, thieves and swindlers. Hermes is especially the conductor of souls. As such, he leads the deceased from life to death.
