Herms were the most popular and publicly visible apotropaic fertility sculptures in classical Athens, ubiquitously placed both at domestic entranceways and public crossways to ward off the ‘evil eye’ (i.e.to act as apotropaic objects) with their weapon-like phallus.[14] Their association with Hermes, who was, in part, a fertility god, meant that they also served as fertility guardians, a not uncommon additional function for apotropaic objects –the logic being that that which protects and turns away evil simultaneously attracts luck and prosperity.
