Snake Goddess--Is it Demeter?

I found it very interesting that the Athenian Snake Goddess plaques they are studying were "found amid a jumble of gravel and other terracotta fragments in 1932 in what was once the Athenian agora, or public square."  

This is what happened when the temples were destroyed, I assume. She was thrown in as fill when they were building a road.

They've called her "The Touchdown Goddess"--how ridiculous!  The arms raised up position is used by priestesses to call in the energy of the divine.
