  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Hermas 
  Mercury,  a  Roman  Christian  to  whom  Paul  sends  greetings  (Rom. 
  16:  14).  Some  suppose  him  to  have  been  the  author  of  the 
  celebrated  religious  romance  called  The  Shepherd,  but  it  is  very 
  probable  that  that  work  is  the  production  of  a  later  generation.
