Elagabalus may actually have been quite crazy. I don't consider
cross-dressing to be 'crazy', although the very rigid Romans would have,
and it's the sort of thing that would be repeated as rumor whether it
happened or not. Dressing as a female prostitute in the Imperial Palace
and trying to lure passers-by into sex acts? That's... that's not the act
of a psychologically well-adjusted person.
Assuming it happened.
Worshiping a giant black rock and attempting to substitute it for the King
of the Gods is also rather unwise.
