Several goddesses were worshipped by men who were deficient for procreation, including the Greek Artemis, the Babylonian Innana, the Akkadian Ishtar, and the Canaanite Asherah. But the goddess best known in ancient Rome for having castrated and eunuch priests was Cybele, and her priests were known as galli.
