This is Hermes' (Mercury's) winged helmet and winged sandals. Hermes
was the "messenger of the gods" in Greek mythology. Paul was taken for
Hermes in Acts 14:12, because he was the one who did all the talking.
The name is probably derived from hERMENEUW to interpret...
Hermeneutics has a pretty dull image. Maybe we could popularize hermeneutics
by wearing winged caps during exposition. Hmm...
