The snakes of Hermes

Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles found almost worldwide. A few species are venomous, and colloquially, the word "snake" has become synonymous with slyness or deception.


Moses used a Staff of Eden to create an illusion of it changing into a snake.[1]

Hermes Trismegistus also held a Staff that was decorated with two intertwined snakes. When he was encountered by Pythagoras and his pupil, Kyros of Zarax, Hermes plunged the staff into the ground and the snakes appeared to speak, informing Pythagoras that he was to be the next possessor of the Staff.[2]

In order to take out the Templar-influenced pharaoh, Cleopatra, the Egyptian Assassin Amunet used a venomous asp to kill her.[3]

During the 18th century, particularly the Seven Years' War, French and Indian War, and the American Revolution, many banners were posted all over Boston, New York and River Valley, depicting a snake, and the writing "Join, or Die" by Benjamin Franklin.
