Hermes, the martial pleasure of an age,
Hermes, well-learned in all arms,
Hermes, both gladiator and teacher,
Hermes, confusion and terror of his school,
Hermes, the only one whom Helius fears,
Hermes, the only one for whom Advolans fell,
Hermes, taught to conquer, not kill,
Hermes, himself his substitute,
Hermes, wealth of the scalpers,
Hermes, care and heartthrob of the slave-girls,
Hermes, warlike and arrogant with a spear,
Hermes, menacing with a sea trident,
Hermes, his plumed helmet drooping, to be feared,
Hermes, glory of all kinds of war,
Hermes, alone is all and three in one.
