Cybele

Fertility

Cybele, the mother goddess of fertility, was revered and worshipped in Antaolia from the Neolithic period. She was still important during the Archaic period. Cybele, a native Anatolian goddess, was mistress of life and wild nature. This belief can be observed in the votive-stelae dedicated to her.
