    According to Greek mythology, Poseidon is regarded as the father of commerce; he is the god of the sea. Poseidon did live in the ocean, but he also had many temples above water. And it is across the sea that the great ships have sailed for centuries to move goods and materials between ports. Ships were the "best way to go" for moving lots of products between greatly removed sites around the globe. Many of the world's great cities are port cities, and for good reason. Sailors used to pray to Poseidon for a safe journey so to avoid his anger.

    I think there is no single person who has been named as the father of Commerce.
