Years ago I heard that the Phrygians had, in their creation myth, that they were the firstborn people of creation.

This came up in the context of biblical studies where the apostle Paul - in his letter to Colossae, which is in Phrygian territory - uses the metaphor of "firstborn of all creation" about Jesus. The speaker noted that Paul is probably using that metaphor in that letter because of the cultural context.

I was recently researching Phrygian creation myths but could not find anything that detailed. Does anyone have any ideas where I might look to find this? Thanks
