Living In The World Of Ancient Mythology



Hermes aided Perseus in killing the gorgon (Medusa) by giving Perseus his winged sandals and telling him to find the Gray Sisters (the Graeae) so they could direct him to the nymphs of the North. When he reached the nymphs they would give him Zeus' sword, Hades' helmet, and Athena's shield.

Hermes’ Appearance: He was depicted as either a handsome and athletic man, beardless boy, or as a bearded older man. He wore winged boots, and sometimes a travelers cap and a cloak.
