Aztec Commerce God
Also known as Yiacatecuhtli
Ancient God of Traveling Salesmen and Merchants
Director of the Pochtecas Chamber of Commerce, Yacatecuhtli offers insider dealing only and it’s very difficult to obtain membership. The secret symbol is a bundle of twigs.
Merchants (known as Pochtecas) who traveled distant and dangerous lands would halt their caravans at night and build an effigy of him from their walking sticks. He would then guard their precious merchandise while they dreamt of wealth...
His symbol is the cross, which he appears to be carrying as though attempting to hawk it from door-to-door. Makes a change from double-glazing — although we don’t know if he offers any kind of warranty.
Some sources state that his name means ‘Lord of the Nose’. He may have a nose for business but Lord of the Vanguard is a better translation. Or at least, a less silly one.
