Mythic, worshipped in Phrygia (modern-day Turkey), 1200–690 B.C.E.
Cybele was an earth mother goddess originally worshipped in Phrygia but her cult spread throughout the Roman empire. She was the goddess of fertility, wild animals, and nature, specifically associated with mountains and caverns. Cybele’s consort was Attis, the god of fertility, growth, and vegetation. Together they represented the male and female aspects of nature.
