He was witnessing a bad post-break up going viral in his network. She was determined to spill it all with whatever she can say about him. It was excessive and shocking to the point that a lot of her claims were questionable and were obviously blatant lies. She went further on posting status updates to gain more sympathy on top of posting tons of vain pictures.
In the 2nd century AD, the geographer Pausanias attests to a Magnesian Lydian cult to "the mother of the gods", whose image was carved into a rock-spur of Mount Sipylus. This was believed to be the oldest image of the goddess, and was attributed to the legendary Broteas.
Images and iconography in funerary contexts, and the ubiquity of her Phrygian name Matar "Mother" Dreams as narrative pullers a look, suggest that she was a mediator between the "boundaries of the known and unknown": Anatolian elites sought to harness her protective power to forms of ruler-cult; in Lydiaher cult had possible connections to the semi-legendary king Midasas her sponsor, consort, or co-divinity.
Greece[ edit ] From around the 6th century BC, cults to the Anatolian mother-goddess were introduced from Phrygia into the ethnically Greek colonies of western Anatolia, mainland Greecethe Aegean islands and the westerly colonies of Magna Graecia.
She was readily assimilated to the Minoan-Greek earth-mother Rhea"Mother of the gods", whose raucous, ecstatic rites she may have acquired.
As an exemplar of devoted motherhood, she was partly assimilated to the grain-goddess Demeterwhose torchlight procession recalled her search for her lost daughter, Persephone. Herodotus says that when Anacharsis returned to Scythia after traveling and acquiring knowledge among the Greeks in the 6th century BC, his brother, the Scythian king, put him to death for joining the cult.
The account may have been a later invention to explain why a public building was dedicated to an imported deity, as the earliest source is the Hymn To The Mother Of The Gods AD by the Roman emperor Julian. She stands alone within a naiskoswhich represents her temple or its doorway, and is crowned with a polos, a high, cylindrical hat.
A long, flowing chiton covers her shoulders and back. She is sometimes shown with lion attendants.
Around the 5th century BC, Agoracritos created a fully Hellenised and influential image of Cybele that was set up in the Athenian agora. It showed her enthroned, with a lion attendant, and a tympanonthe hand drum that was a Greek introduction to her cult and a salient feature in its later developments.
In Greek mytha connection between Cybele and Dionysus may not date any earlier than the 1st century BC: Above are the Sun God and heavenly objects. Literary sources describe joyous abandonment to the loud, percussive music of tympanon, castanets, clashing cymbals and flutes, and to the frenzied "Phrygian dancing", perhaps a form of circle-dancing by women, to the roar of "wise and healing music of the gods".
In cult terms, they seem to have functioned as intercessors or intermediaries between goddess and mortal devotees, through dreams, waking trance or ecstatic dance and song. They include the armed Koureteswho danced around Zeus and clashed their shields to amuse him; their supposedly Phrygian equivalents, the youthful Corybanteswho provided similarly wild and martial music, dance and song; and the dactyls and Telchinesmagicians associated with metalworking.
Before him stands a Phrygian goddess identified by the inscription as Agdistis who carries a tympanon in her left hand.
With her right, she hands him a jug, as if to welcome him into her cult with a share of her own libation. Roman legend connects this voyage, or its end, to the matron Claudia Quintawho was accused of inchastity but proved her innocence with a miraculous feat on behalf of the goddess.
The histories of her arrival deal with the piety, purity and status of the Romans involved, the success of their religious stratagem, and power of the goddess herself; she has no consort or priesthood, and seems fully Romanised from the first.
She gives the Trojans her sacred tree for shipbuilding, and begs Jupiter to make the ships indestructible. These ships become the means of escape for Aeneas and his men, guided towards Italy and a destiny as ancestors of the Roman people by Venus Genetrix.
Once arrived in Italy, these ships have served their purpose and are transformed into sea nymphs. The emperor Claudius claimed her among his ancestors. Megalesia Illustration of the month of April based on the Calendar of Filocalus ADperhaps either a Gallus or a theatrical performer for the Megalesia  The Megalesia festival to Magna Mater commenced on April 4, the anniversary of her arrival in Rome.
The festival structure is unclear, but it included ludi scaenici plays and other entertainments based on religious themesprobably performed on the deeply stepped approach to her temple; some of the plays were commissioned from well-known playwrights.
Along the route, rose petals are scattered, and clouds of incense arise. Hilaria The Principate brought the development of an extended festival or "holy week"  for Cybele and Attis in March Latin Martiusfrom the Ides to nearly the end of the month.
Citizens and freedmen were allowed limited forms of participation in rites pertaining to Attis, through their membership of two collegeseach dedicated to a specific task; the Cannophores "reed bearers" and the "Dendrophores "tree bearers".
Canna intrat "The Reed enters"marking the birth of Attis and his exposure in the reeds along the Phrygian river Sangarius where he was discovered—depending on the version—by either shepherds or Cybele herself. Arbor intrat "The Tree enters"commemorating the death of Attis under a pine tree.
The dendrophores "tree bearers" cut down a tree,  suspended from it an image of Attis,  and carried it to the temple with lamentations.
The day was formalized as part of the official Roman calendar under Claudius. Sanguem or Dies Sanguinis "Day of Blood"a frenzy of mourning when the devotees whipped themselves to sprinkle the altars and effigy of Attis with their own blood; some performed the self-castrations of the Galli.
The "sacred night" followed, with Attis placed in his ritual tomb. Hilaria "Rejoicing"when Attis was reborn. Requietio "Day of Rest".
There the stone and sacred iron implements were bathed "in the Phrygian manner" by a red-robed priest. The return trip was made by torchlight, with much rejoicing.
