Hermes cult was living in Anatolia

It is a very exciting moment when something form ancient times are unearthed. Turkey is a country where you can live this excitement. Still today it is possible to unearth some items from ancient period by chance. It can be a construction project or an infrastructure project. A similar event became true in northern Blacksea region of Turkey.

Within an infrastructure project, a metropole site was unearthed. That site remained from Roman period. Also the archeaologists discovered valuable personal items from that site such as a ring that figured Hermes. Like Dionysos cult, Hermes cult was also popular in Roman society. That’s why, we can come across many items in archeaological excavations.

Turkish territory hides many archeaological treasures and items. Thus archeaology can find many things here.
