Abstract: 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.
