ἀμφί: cf. on vii. 1. Ἑρμείαο φίλον Γόνον: the genealogies vary; Roscher (die Sagen etc.) gives a complete list. For Hermes as the father cf. Herod.ii. 145, Lucian dial. deor. 22, Anth. Plan. iv. 229 and elsewhere. Hermes and Pan were both shepherdgods (“νόμιοι”) in Arcadia, and were both worshipped on Cyllene, so that their connexion, no doubt, originated in Arcadia.
