Cybèle (en grec ancien Κυϐέλη / Kybélê signifiant « gardienne des savoirs ») est une divinité d'origine phrygienne (connue également sous le nom d’Agdistis en Phrygie), importée en Grèce et à Rome, personnifiant la nature sauvage. Elle est présentée comme « Magna Mater », Grande Déesse, Déesse Mère ou encore Mère des dieux. Cybèle est sans doute l'une des plus grandes déesses de l'Antiquité au Proche-Orient.
