Mercurius

Author: Obsidian

The Messenger and Herald of the Gods, He also had responsibility for travelers and roadways. Similar in many ways to the Hellenic Hermes, Mercurius in the Roman world bore the cadeucus (a serpent entwinned staff) as a symbol of his office. The Romans also gave him authority over winds, and in this context he is said to be always a bane to Apollo, in that he constantly is stealing away Apollo's herds (the clouds).
