Kubaba

April 21st, 2008 by sabrina

Kubaba is the Hurrian Goddess of the city of Carchemish. She was usually depicted as a regal woman wearing a long robe, either standing or seated on a throne. She holds a mirror and a pomegranate, symbols of magic and fertility. She was adopted by the Hittites after the fall of the Hurrians, and eventually evolved into the Phrygian Goddess Cybebe, later known as Cybele to the Romans.
