Interesting Ancient Fact about Aphrodite, Hermes & Ancient Politicians
by Karen Tate
Interesting Ancient Fact: In ancient times, when a politician was running for office he'd make offerings to Aphrodite and Hermes. Why? Well, the politician needed Hermes as his messenger to get his story out there in the public domain, reach the ears of the masses, have people learn about his campaign. Then it was Aphrodite's turn... Aphrodite would draw people to him. Make the public like him, love him, believe in him and ultimately support and vote for him.
