In Rita Skeeter's hectic life of romance and intrigue, there was only one thing that she could really be sure of: the moment she stepped into The Three Broomsticks, Madam Rosmerta would be right there with a warm glass of butterbeer for her.
On this particular occasion, it was near closing and there was nobody else there but Madam Rosmerta and Rita, so the butterbeer ended up on Rita's table, and then in her hand, and then in her mouth and then warming her belly almost immediately.
Madam Rosmerta, used to declarations of this sort, merely smiled as she cast a dusting spell over the bar.

If 'Mercury' has the greatest number of representations, and they 'often' include Rosmerta, m ight not that mean that she would likewise have 'the greatest number of images'?
In one of the 'Ros merta and Mercury' series, the god may possibly be a child rather than a man, while Rosmerta is quite clearly a grown woman, carrying the cornucopia of the mother-goddess (25).
Such details may not convince the traditionalists of goddess dominance, but ne ither are they evidence for the unquestioned dominant-god theory.
