Powerful. But I always read that Mercury had wings on his heels, not his head. Granted he was known for quickness of thought, being god of tricksters and thieves, etc., but speed in delivering messages was his forte.Not so?

:-) Joel N. Barkley replies: "Some where I thought I read that he had a helmet with wings as well. I ’m not sure. I have a big book on mythology, but that would require me to read and do researchy things right now. I’ll have to get back to you.
Thanks a bunch!"
