Bacchus Roman name for the Greek god Dionysos, he was the orgiastic deity of bacchanalia, the religious wine festivals held throughout the empire. Satyr plays portraying the regenerative powers of Bacchus/Dionysos gave rise to Greek drama. His phallic staff (thyrsus) crowned by a pine cone represents the human faculties of wisdom and inspiration. His mount Scorpio was the zodiacal sign ascendant during the time of harvest equinox and probably symbolizes Osiris, the original god of barley brewing and ecstatic intoxication. Standing Bacchus, from the Vatican Museum, carries grape clusters in his panther skin cloak. Note his ram companions and ribald expression. JBL Statues
