🔎Curiosities: Rhea was a character from Greek mythology, daughter of Gaia (Goddess of the earth) and Uranus (God of the sky), and mother of Zeus. Married to Cronus, the youngest leader of the first generation of Titans, she was known as "The mother of Gods".

The legend says Gaia and Uranus told Cronus he was fated to be overcome by his own child, therefore Cronus swallowed all the children Rhea gave birth to. For this reason, Gaia, Uranus and Rhea figured out a plan to save her last child. Rhea gave birth to Zeus in cave on the Island of Crete, and gave Cronus a stone wrapped in clothes which he immediately swallowed. Zeus was hidden in a cave on Mount Ida protected by her guardians. 

Her cult was pretty common especially on the Island of Crete, where people celebrated her with chants and dances usually accompanied by a tympanon (a type of drum) to reach religious ecstasy.
