Don't think so.The "original" trader god, if there were such a god (debatable) would be a god of communication, not trade.

My own take on Issaries and his Aspects is that the cults of several trader gods of several pantheons traded attributes with each other so much that they slowly became indistinguishable from each other, and their gods eventually became one god with many Aspects. A process of cultural integration anthropo-wise, but with much more integration than normally acheived in Glorantha.
