Her symbols include the dove and the swan. Hermes was the son and the messenger of Zeus. It was his duty to bring the dictates of the gods to earth. Primarily a god of travelers, Hermes 40 THE MAGICAL PANTHEONS guided those who were journeying. As Hermes Psychopompus, he was charged with the duty of conducting the souls of the dead to the under­ world. Because many journeys were undertaken for commercial rea­ sons, Hermes became known as the god of commerce, articulation, and eloquence. He is often represented as a swift-footed, (sometimes bearded) athletic god, wearing a winged helmet and winged sandals.

He is the only god in the pantheon to have a parent who was human. Dionysus was a complex god of wine, pleasure, and the forces of life. Credited with inventing the art of wine-making, Dionysus (like wine itself), can bring either ecstasy or rage. Unlike other deities, Dionysus could sometimes be perceived as dwelling within his followers. Called the "deliverer of men from their cares," Dionysus is depicted as a youth crowned with vine leaves and grapes and robed in the skin of a pan­ ther. In one hand he bears a cup of wine and in the other a thyrsus staff surmounted by a pine cone.

Thoth is the one who divided time into months, years, seasons, and aeons. He is the divine calculator, adviser, arbiter, chief historian, and keeper of the divine archives. Herald of the gods, he also served as their clerk and scribe. In the Hall of Judgment, he acts on behalf of the gods. Thoth is pictured as a human figure with the head of an ibis, wearing the kilt, collar, and headdress (sometimes with the disc and crescent) of the Old Kingdom. In his hands he holds the tablet and writing stylus of a scribe.
