Plutarch is correct, Hermes is Anubis - (resonant oscillation electric field collecting charge)
the son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia

Hermes known as "transgression of boundaries" - resonance and 'wireless' electricity...
Hermes known as "conductor of souls into the afterlife" - again resonance and 'wireless' electricity of the spirit as you live life...
Hermes known as trickster - again resonance and use of 'wireless' electricity.
[Considered equivalent of Roman deity Mercury]
Resonance occurs inside a boundary as that is how charge is absorbed into double layer - ἕρμα herma, Kriophoros Hermes supports double layer, shown by carrying and holding up the lamb...
