According to Laktanz, the Roman poet Gnaeus Naevius is said to have reported a Cimmerian Sibyl in Italy in his epic Punica . Lactant thus distinguishes her from the Sibyl of Cumae, which is also suspected in Italy .
In Gothic and Renaissance art , the Cimmerian Sibyl is sometimes depicted as one in a series of sibyls , based on the Varro listing , often in juxtaposition to an often equal number of prophets from the Old Testament. In the probably best-known pictorial representation of five Sibyls by Michelangelo in the fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel , however, no 'Cimmeria' is included.
In some other groups of sibyls, however, there is now and then a named 'Cimmeria', e.g. B. in the following locations:
- Ulm , Germany, Gothic half-sculpture in the choir stalls of the Ulm Minster , as one of ten Sibyls, in the total work of art with numerous ancient scholars and prophets
- Also , France, in the cathedral in one of the stained glass windows with sibyls and prophets made by Arnaud de Moes between 1503 and 1513
- Trescore, Italy, series of medallions with sibyls and prophets in the Oratorio Suardi painted as a fresco by Lorenzo Lotto around 1524
- Münster , Germany, as one of several sibyls and scholars on the panels originally created for the ambulatory of the cathedral by Ludger tom Ring the Elder around 1538 (oil on oak)
