Son of Picus, who is also Zeus; the one they called Hermes after the name of the planet-star. He was an astronomer and discovered mines of gold and silver and iron and passed down the art of working these to the westerners, so he is also called Wealth-giver by the locals. Plotted against by his own brothers he fled to Egypt, to the tribe of Ham, the son of Noah. He was taken in and spent time with them, dressed in a golden robe and prophesying and being honored like a god, giving them a share of wealth.
