                note RHEA is emblematic of
  "EARTH" and "I FLOW" pointing to LIFE and LIVING and
  implicitly with MYSTERIES of the AFTERLIFE and RESURRECTION
  note RHEA offers one of the MOST DIFFICULT POINTS found in
       ancient MYTHOLOGY and concerns DEMETER  CERES  CYBELE

  myth> RHEA emerged mostly from Crete where she delivered
        ZEUS and from where her cult spread to Thrace
  Greek colonists spread her cult throughout Asia Minor and later
  throughout Europe
  Among the Greeks RHEA she was considered to be the daughter of
  URANUS and GE and her spouse was her brother CRONUS
  RHEA begat HESTIA, DEMETER, HERA and other OLYMPIC DEITIES
  which is reflected in her apellation of "THE MOTHER OF GODS"
  CRONUS was induced by his mother Ge to castrate his father
  CRONUS had CHRONIC fear of sharing the fate of his father and
  decided to devour his children by Rhea
  When REA was when ready to deliver Zeus she sought refuge in
  Crete here he was born and cared for by the CURETES
  Rhea offered to Cronus a stone wrapped up like an infant
  which he promptly swallowed
  the stone later worshipped at Delphi was emetic and
  induced Cronus to vomit up the devoured children who
  deposed Cronus and joined Zeus in OLYMPUS
  Elsewhere Rhea was seen in other complex ways and
  became linked with the worship of
  HECATED  DIONYSUS  BACCHUS and other MYSTERY CULTS
  about life death and resurrection which became
  POPULAR particularly among the POPULACE who as is common
  was receptive to gory mysteries beyond the grasp of reason
  with time the mystery cults of
  RHEA-DEMETER-CERES-CYBELE-EPHYSIAN DIANA became universal
  across Europe and Asia Minor and some of the features were
  perpetuated by CHRISTIANITY
