Festival of Hermes

“The fact that everything is to be referred to reason we may gather from the Egyptians themselves; for on the nineteenth day of the first month, when they are holding festival in honour of Hermes, they eat honey and a fig; and as they eat they say, ‘A sweet thing is Truth.'” – Plutarch, On Isis and Osiris 68
