Free shipping for many products. CYBELE. CYBELE (Latin) or Kybele (Greek) is the Greek and Roman name given to a female deity of Anatolian origin whose worship was widely disseminated throughout the ancient Mediterranean world. The deity's name in her homeland was Matar, or Mother; in some cases this was modified by the Phrygian epithet Kybeliya, meaning "mountain," the source of the term.

Attis (Greek: Ἄττις or Ἄττης) was the consort of Cybele in Phrygian and Greek mythology. [2] His priests were eunuchs, the Galli, as explained by origin myths pertaining to Attis and was also a Phrygian god of vegetation, and in his self-mutilation, death, and resurrection he represents the fruits of the earth, which die in winter only to rise again in the.

The Sibylline Books (Latin: Libri Sibyllini) were a collection of oracular utterances, set out in Greek hexameters, that according to tradition were purchased from a sibyl by the last king of Rome, Tarquinius Superbus, and were consulted at momentous crises through the history of the Republic and the fragments have survived, the rest being lost or deliberately.

Cybele and Attis is the story of the Phrygian great mother goddess Cybele's tragic love for the mortal Attis. It is also a story of self-mutilation and regeneration. When Cybele —one of Zeus' would-be lovers—rejected him, Zeus wouldn't take "no" for an answer. See also Cybele on Wikipedia; and our Encyclopædia Britannica disclaimer.

Encyclopædia Britannica, Volume 12 — Great Mother of the Gods GREAT MOTHER OF THE GODS, the ancient Oriental-Greek-Roman deity commonly known as Cybele (q.v.) in Greek and Latin literature from the time of Pindar.At Pessinus, the centre of the Cybele cult, there were two high priests during the Hellenistic period, one with the title of "Attis" and the other with the name of "Battakes".Both were eunuchs.

The high priests had considerable political influence during this period, and letters exist from a high priest of Attis to the kings of Pergamon, Eumenes II and Attalus II, inscribed on stone.Cybele may have evolved from an Anatolian Mother Goddess of a type found at Çatalhöyük, dated to the 6th millennium BCE.

[2] This corpulent, fertile Mother Goddess appears to be giving birth on her throne, which has two feline-headed hand rests. In Phrygian art of the 8th century BCE, the cult attributes of the Phrygian mother-goddess include attendant lions, a bird of prey.
