Dionysian bull

Bacchus was the son of Jupiter, by Semele, daughter of the king of Thebes, in whose city he is said to have been born. He was the god of good-cheer, wine, and hilarity; and of him, as such, the poets have not been sparing in their praises: on all occasions of mirth and jollity, they constantly invoked his presence, and as constantly thanked him for the blessings he bestowed. To him they ascribed the forgetfulness of cares, and the delights of social interaction. He is described as a youth of a plump figure, naked, with a ruddy face, and an effeminate air; he is crowned with ivy and vine leaves, and bears in his hand a thyrsus, or javelin with an iron head, encircled with ivy and vine leaves: his chariot is sometimes drawn by lions, at other times by tigers, leopards, or panthers, and is surrounded by a band of Satyrs, Bacchae, and Nymphs. The women who accompanied him as his priestesses were called Maenads, from their madness; Thyades, from their impetuosity; Bacchae, from their intemperate depravity; and Mimallones, or Mimallonides, from their mimicking their leaders.
