A quick reminder that you’re likely to see the same image pop up twice here from time to time as I occasionally don’t realize I’ve already posted a particular image on the blog already.  Our god is a popular one, and has an especially enthusiastic group of followers on Tumblr!  There are a lot of posts to enjoy and I have never had a great memory…

And I just realized that the “Submit” button had mysteriously disappeared, but that has been rectified.  Please feel free to submit any image you like that is related to Dionysos!  We’ve got everything here from museum photos to Etsy creations to pop culture references, meticulously created shrines and artistic tattoos to doodles made in class.  It’s all god so it’s all good.


A whole bunch of cameos of Dionysus and Ariadne (last one)

Table support with a dionysiac group:

Unknown provenance. This piece was the single support for a table top. The pillar support is adorned by a group of Dionysos, Pan and a Satyr. The nude Dionysus holds a rhyton ending in the front of a panther. Next to him the goat-footed god Pan holds a lagobolon. In front of him there is a small cylindrical basket, from which a snake is emerging. A young satyr climbs up the vine and cuts grapes with the sickle in his right hand. From the branch hangs a lagobolon, a pan-pipe and a goatskin. The exposed parts of the bodies are very polished. Traces of red and yellow colour are preserved on the hair of the figures and the branches.  Marble from Dokimeion in Asia Minor. From a workshop in Asia Minor. (170-180 A.D)
