A caduceus or Wand of Hermes is a typically depicted short herald's staff entwined by two snakes in the form of a double helix. In addition this staff is often winged. It was an ancient astrological symbol of commerce and is often depicted being carried in the left hand of Greek god Hermes, also known in Ancient Egypt as Thoth, the messenger and herald of the gods, conductor of the dead and protector of merchants and thieves.
