A Heracles Herm

I have posted several Herms earlier on(one in wood from Brauron, one headless from Sicyon and one from the Agora in Athens), but I thought that this one from Messene (The stadium, the walls and the odeon/ekklesiasterion) could be of interest as it depict Heracles. It was dedicated by Philiades, son of Neon, and date to the 3rd century BC.
