HERMES - Greek God of the Month - week 4

The Tomb of Hermes

Archeologist finds the Tomb of Hermes in...Egypt? Maybe it's the tomb of Hermes Trismegistus.


It is thought that Hermes is the Greek version of the Egyptian god Thoth. The combo of the two gods is known as Hermes Trismegistus which some have completely dismissed.

Alexander the Great is said to be the one who discovered the Emerald Tablet of Hermes, in the tomb of Hermes-Trismegistus in the Valley of Hebron

The god Trismegistus has made an appearance in one film, THE KEEP, which oddly enough is about a tomb too. Though not a PEPLUM, the evil god is shown as a big muscular omnipotent being.
