Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Attis was the consort of Cybele in Phrygian and Greek mythology. His priests were eunuchs, as explained by origin myths pertaining to Attis and castration. Attis was also a Phrygian god of vegetation. The 19th-century identification with the name Atys encountered in Herodotus as the historical name of the son of Croesus, as "Atys the sun god, slain by the boar's tusk of winter", are mistaken. An Attis cult began around 1200 BCE in Dindymon. He was originally a local semi-deity of Phrygia, associated with the great Phrygian trading city of Pessinos, which lay under the lee of Mount Agdistis. The mountain was personified as a daemon, whom foreigners associated with the Great Mother Cybele.
