Hermes was the son of Zeus and nymph Maia, Atlas' daughter. Hermes was the god of shepherds, merchants, literature, and thieves. He was also the messenger of the gods and conductor of souls to the underworld. He was the cleverest out of all the Olympian gods; He invented the lyre, the pipes, the musical scale, astronomy, weights, measures, and the care of olive trees.
