Description

Dionysos is the god of the grape-harvest, winemaking and wine, of fertitity, ritual madness, religious extasy, and theatre. By the Romans and Greeks he was also called Bromios (the noise-maker) and Bakhos or Bacchus (the Shouter) because of the noise produced by his entourage. In literature and poetry he often is also called for Lysios and Lyäus (in Greek Λυαῖος), the “liberator of sorrows”, and also for Soter, redeemer.

The Dionysia (Greek: Διονύσια Dionysia) were Ancient Greek festivities in honour of Dionysos, the god of extasy, drunkenness and metamorphosis of the wine. What began originally as a Thracian religious cult with processions, developed in Athens to a feast, called Urban Dionysia. Out of the cultic singing, dancing and sacrificial rituals arose the Greek tragedy and comedy in the religious context.
