Hermes, in the role of someone teaching [about] the roads and bearing an inscription [indicating] where this road leads, and where that. But perhaps having a head [pointing] towards each road. The person who set up the Three-Headed Hermes, as Philochorus says, [was] Prokleides, a lover of Hipparchos.[1]
Isaeus in the [speech] On Eukleides [writes]: "a short way up from the three-headed, by the Hestia road".[2] In full this is "the Three-Headed Hermes".
