The attention of the author is focused on the relationship between Cybele and Apollo
on a votive altar found in the territory of the ancient Celeia. The presence of symbols
referring both to the anatolian goddess and to the oracular deity on the sides of the
monument was considered from scholars as an evidence of a symbiosis between these
particular healing deities. However, the lack of close comparisons for this exclusive
association with respect to other figurative documents in the roman world leads to a
review of the monument. The considering of the altar from a different prospective and
the research of connection between metroac and apollonian cult on an historical level
suggest an alternative interpretation for the presence of tripod and other symbols of
Apollo on the altar.
