2,350-year-old Cybele statue found


From the article:  
"A marble statue of the Anatolian mother goddess Cybele created 2,350 years ago has been discovered in the ancient city of Antandrus, located in the Edremit district of western Türkiye's Balıkesir province.  Noting that the statue was used as a stone in the walls of the Roman villa in Antandrus, Polat continued: 'The artifact, unfortunately, is not in a well-protected situation. However, we can understand it depicts the mother goddess Cybele.' Polat informed that the statue depicts Cybele sitting on the throne with lion figures on both sides along with another lion on her lap."
