The Messenger of the Gods
One of Hermes' most famous myths was of Hermes stealing cattle from his brother, Apollo. When Hermes was just an infant, we went exploring from his cave. He found the a cave where Apollo's cattle were kept and stole them. Apollo soon found out and was furious. Since Apollo was the god of prophecy, he went to Hermes and accused Hermes of theft. Hermes denied that he stole the cattle, so Apollo took Hermes to Zeus at Mount Olympus. Hermes could not lie to his father so he admitted that he stole his brother's cattle. Zeus thought this was funny so he didn't punish Hermes. He tried to make peace with his brother by giving him a lyre, a musical instrument that Hermes made from a tortoise shell. Apollo kindly accepted it and loved it.
Another of Hermes myths was of him being Zeus' "agent" and helping his father out. One day, Zeus fell in love with a mortal Io, and Hera found out. Hera turned Io into a cow and put Argus Panoptes, one-hundred eyed giant to guard the cow. Zeus sent Hermes to rescue his lover, Io. Hermes arrived and slayed the one-hundred eyed giant
The last myth about Hermes is of him rescuing Ares. There was once two twin giants named Otus and Ephilates who tried to storm heaven by piling three mountains- Olympus, Ossa, and Pelion. While in the process of piling the mountains on eachother, they managed to capture the god of war, Ares, and putting him in a bronze urn. Ares stayed there until the agile, Hermes came and rescued him.
