Because Hermes was one of the 12 most important Greek gods.
Zeus, Hera, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Hermes, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Poseidon, Hephaestus, Demeter, are the major gods and goddesses and the gods who had thrones on Mt. O…lympus. Other gods and goddesses like Hestia, lived on Mt. Olympus but did not have thrones.
That is what the myths tell us. . Only the Olympic Gods "lived" on Mt Olympos in Greek Mythology. There was a constant need for the balance of Olympus to be maintained, so a…dditional deities were usually ordered as such, including Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth and Home, who was eligible and rightful to Olympus, but having upset the balance of Gods to Goddesses, she was not considered an Olympic God, and gave it up on her will, as to her it seemed more vital to dwell in the hearth and home. And even the Deities didnt stay on Olympos all the time- Artemis, the Goddess of the Hunt, was always one to go on hunts in the wilderness,and represented hunting and the movements of animals in these aspects, Apollo had a holy place near Delphi,Poseidon dealt with the seas, so often he was in the sea, and representative of the sea. Often all the Deities were not assembled unless it was a full-fledged call of Zeus to "come to order".You can also see how often the deities were not constantly on Olympos, rather being representative and of what they were.
Zeus was one of the Olympian gods, and all the Olympian gods livedon Mt. Olympus. There were twelve Olympians. They were: Zeus, Hera,Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis…, Ares, Aphrodite,Hephaestus, Hermes, and Dionysus. Hades was not considered one of the twelve Olympians, even thoughhe is one of the major gods because he was not allowed on Olympusexcept on the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year. (Hadeshas his own palace down in the Underworld where he rules.)
Geia was the universe, mostley the earth a goddess whose son and husband Uranus (a little awkward) had a son; Cronos who had hestiesta, posiedon, hades, Demeter and hera (late…r zeuses wife) He swallowed them all, then Rhea (his wife) had Zeus and gave him to some sheaperds and showed cronos a rock in some clothes which he swallowed (a prophesy said cronos will be killed by his child for killing uranus). later Zeus was brought back to Olympus by rhea and he and she made a mixture that they gave to Cronos who promptly threw up Zeus's siblings (being gods they hadn't been digested) who elected Zeus as their leader, they then started a war with the titans and people like that and won tada
Ok, well the cyclops built three stuff for the top 3 gods: For Zeus: Lightning, Poseidon: An all-powerful trident, Hades: an invisible helm, Baisically, cyclops is your answe…r
He has a seat there, but usually spends his days working in his smithy. It often thought to be under Mt Etna.
