Fertility gods share similar dancers. Attis has the Galli and the Cabeiri.(Corybantes). Xochipilli doesn’t castrate, but he’s known for having male homosexual dancing around him. Bacchus and Dionysus have an entourage of beautiful women and beastly gents dancing around them. I used the term Prince instead of god because such gods often have youthful aspects. Sky gods rule; fertility gods normally find something else to do.

I show the Parabiago plate, again, because it shows three Corybantes dancing around Attis and Cybele.
