Hermes, founded in 1866, is an international peer-reviewed journal, focusing on classical philology. It also features articles on Greek and Roman history, archaeology, epigraphy and numismatics. One of the oldest German journals of its kind, it was founded by Theodor Mommsen, Adolf Kirchhoff and Rudolf Hercher. The original editor was Emil Hübner. Today Hermes is edited by Siegmar Döpp, Karl-Joachim Hölkeskamp and Adolf Köhnken and contains original articles in German, English, French and Italian.
Franz Steiner is one of Germany's most prominent academic publishing houses.
