Greek - Daughter of Celeus and Metaneira, some say. In some accounts she was a maid servant in the house of Celeus. Baubo amused the sorrowing Demeter, who was temporarily employed as wet nurse to the young son of Celeus, by dancing with her belly exposed. In this context she is sometimes referred to as Iambe, but others make Iambe a separate person. Some versions describe Baubo as a female head attached to a pair of legs, including a vulva, with no intervening body. Occasionally known as Baubo, Babo, Babo or Baubo.
Mesopotamian - A Syrian mother-goddess. At times, referred to as Baubo, Babo, Babo or Baubo.
