Rosmerta is the Gaulish Goddess of warmth and abundance. She was the consort of Esus, who was identified with the Roman Mercury when the Romans spread throughout Gaul. Rosmerta is usually depicted holding a cornucopia or a basket of fruit, or with her arms outspread to give her grace to all. Her name means “great provider”.
