The Roman Mercury-worship
Mercurius was considered one of the principal deities of the Roman Empire. He was equivalent to the Greek god Hermes and had the same origins and attributes. The Romans worshiped Mercury as the god of merchants and thieves, as the messenger of the gods.
Mercury's name derives from the Latin word “merx” for goods. The ancient illustrations showed Mercury with Caduceus, a winged helmet, winged shoes, and often with a purse in his right hand.
Around 500 BC the Romans dedicated a temple Complex near Circus Maximus in honor of Mercury and established a public cult site as city guardian for him. When in the 3rd century BC brazen coins were cast, a portrait of Mercury with winged hat embellished the first coin.
Even today, Mercury is present and we find him as a root word in many Romance languages for the 3rd day of the week, Wednesday.
