Hermes (Subtitle: Journal for Classical Philology; originally: Hermes. Journal for Classical Philology ) is the title of one of the oldest still appearing journals in the field of classical studies . The articles deal mainly with classical philology , but the Hermes also traditionally publishes essays on ancient history , which is why one of the editors is always an ancient historian . Accepted languages of publication are German , English , French , Italian and Latin .
The magazine first appeared in 1866. The first editor was the Latinist Emil Huebner ; Furthermore, the Graecist Adolf Kirchhoff and the ancient historian Theodor Mommsen were involved in the establishment. Current editors are the Latinist Marcus Deufert , the ancient historians Hans Beck and Karl-Joachim Hölkeskamp and the Graecist Martin Hose .
