Its roots have to be searched back in the middle of the IInd millenium B.C. In the classic Greek mythology Sabazius has been identified with Dyonisus - Zagreus, the son of Zeus and Persephona. later on, under the influence of the Hellenic mythology and culture, the cult towards Sabazius had penetrated into Rome, where it became one with the cult towards Jupiter. The snake had been its sacred animal.
