69230 Hermes

This minor planet is named after the Greek god of messengers and travelers, and psychopomp. He is the son of Zeus and Maia, and his Roman counterpart is Mercury. Sometimes, he is a god of tricksters and thieves, the master of lies, and the inventor of sports. What, everyone needs a hobby.

The symbol of this near-Earth asteroid is a caduceus, as Mercury, with a star in the center.
