Mercury, or the goods dealer
The name of the Roman god Mercury goes back to the Latin word of merx, goods.
Mercury was recognized in the Greek Good Hermes, the envoy. His properties were transferred to Mercury. Hence, Mercury, too, is considered the 'messenger of gods'.
This God of trade and money comes in an impressive, massive, polished bronze statue which is hand made in the antique lost-wax casting method.
