Footnotes

  • In Greek religion a Herm was a sacred object connected with the cult of Hermes, the fertility god and the protector of travelers. Herms tend to be statues in the form of pillars that were generally square or tapering toward the base, surmounted by the bearded head of Hermes. They were always regarded with great respect and carried by travelers to ward off evil spirits.
