[3] Greek Anthology 6.173.1-2 (Rhianos); upon leaving the cult, an attendant of Kybele dedicates her hair; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 176); (vol. II, 506-507); and further extracts from this epigram at gamma 23, kappa 2588, and omicron 540. For this woman--whose name may be incorrectly transmitted by the Suda (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 506))--see already alpha 4720. On the Phrygian goddess Kybele (Cybele), equivalent to the Minoan goddess Rhea, see also kappa 2586.
