In search for the right interpretation regarding a body of related content, we screened a small corpus of myths about Attis, a minor deity from the Hellenistic period in Asia Minor to identify the noncommutativity of key concepts used in storytelling. Looking at the protagonist’s typical features, our experiment showed incompatibility with regard to his gender and downfall. A crosscheck for entanglement found no violation of a Bell inequality, its best approximation being on the border of the local polytope.
