Before Olympos: A Study of the Aniconic Origins of Poseidon, Hermes and Eros
by Suhr, Elmer G.
175 pp. Illustrated. "Explores the aniconic (that is, non-anthropomorphic--therefore, pre-anthropomorphic) origins of certain obviously pre-Hellenic deities in the classical pantheon of Greek gods: Poseidon, Hermes, Eros and, to an extent, Aphrodite. ...The present study concentrates on four Olympic deities, but the central figure, it turns out, is Hermes, who, when the mysteries of his collective attributes have been explained, contributes much to unraveling the enigmas of the roles of the other three."Keywords: GREEK MYTHOLOGY ANCIENT GREECE OLYMPOS POSEIDON HERMES EROS FIRST EDITION LOCAL AUTHOR First Edition.
