SCAMANDER
Also known as SKAMANDROS

Over-enthusiastic Cybele fan turned River God

A Cretan priest who, due to services to CYBELE above and beyond the call of duty (including frenzied dancing and self-mutilation), was made a River God.

The river chosen was the one he fell into and drowned after an over-enthusiastic demonstration. This was the Xanthus and is now the SCAMANDER.

It's nowadays used to dip sheep, bathe virgins and dispose of empty bottles.

To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Scamander statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Scamander. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
