This interesting article, "The Phrygian Background of Kybele" by Birgitte Bøgh (Numen Vol. 54, No. 3 (2007), pp. 304-339), describes the way the original Phrygian goddess known as Cybele originally bore the simple name Matar (mother) and how her attributes and iconography changed as Phrygia came under the influence of Greece and Rome, particularly as she became incorporated into the Roman pantheon as Magna Mater after she was invoked as a protector goddess during the Punic Wars. She was originally always depicted standing and with a polos draped with a veil. She was not always depicted as accompanied by lions – though she could be – but often with birds. In contrast, on Roman coins and statuary, she is typically portrayed enthroned, wearing Greco-Roman dress, and accompanied by lions. This little provincial bronze of the city of Docimeum in Phrygia illustrates a more traditionally Phrygian depiction of the goddess: standing, wearing a veil-draped polos and flanked by lions on either side. Faustina II, AD 147-175. Roman provincial Æ 18 mm, 4.40 g, 6 h. Phrygia, Docimeum, c. AD 150-154. Obv: ΦΑVСΤЄΙΝΑ СЄΒΑС, bare-headed and draped bust, right. Rev: ΔΟΚΙ-ΜЄΩΝ, cultus-statue of Cybele standing facing, flanked by lions. Refs: RPC IV.2 1976 (temp); BMC 25.187,23; SNG Copenhagen 358; SNG von Aulock 3550. Note that the goddess is portrayed in a garment featuring multiple ovoid objects on it. Compare this statue of Cybele found in Pergamon from Hellenistic times now in the Ephesos Museum in Vienna. In contrast, this is how she is portrayed in her usual Greco-Roman iconography: wearing a polos, stola and palla, enthroned, with a tympanum, and accompanied by one or more lions.
