Hermes was the ancient Greek god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, thieves, and travel. One

the two realms of gods and humanity. To the Romans, the god was known as Mercury. Herein, we present a review of the literature
expounding upon significant heterogeneity in the classical understanding and interpretation of this figure within urology.
