“This is a rectangle, built of boulders, with a partition which constitutes the North-Eastern part of the temple. This is a typical layout of the temple…” – said Tolstikov. He added that archaeologists have found the head of the statue depicting lion, which presumably adorned the statue of the goddess Cybele, found in the excavations of Panticapaeum in 1826. Now the statue of the goddess is in the Russian Hermitage, archaeologists have not ruled out that on the Acropolis of Panticapaeum could be a temple dedicated to Cybele.
