This is the Greek god who brings pleasure to humans. The god of wine, agriculture, and fertility of nature.
“… Wait a moment while I fetch you some mellow wine, so that you may first make a libation to Zeus and the other immortals and then, if you like, enjoy a drink yourself. Wine is a great comfort to a weary man …” [Hecabe 1 to Hector 1. Homer, Iliad 6.260]
“O Cyclops, son of the sea-god, come see what kind of divine drink this is that Greece provides from its vines, the gleaming cup of Dionysus.” [Odysseus to Polyphemus 2. Euripides, Cyclops 415]
Polyphemus 2: Who is this Dionysus? Is he worshipped as a god?
Odysseus: Yes, the best source of joy in life for mortals.
[Euripides, Cyclops 521]
“This is the effect of your wine—for wine is a crazy thing. It sets the wisest man singing and giggling like a girl; it lures him on to dance and it makes him blurt out what were better left unsaid.” [Odysseus to Eumaeus 1. Homer, Odyssey 14.464]
“Moi je suis Bacchus qui pressure pour les hommes le nectar délicieux.” [Ludwig van Beethoven (on the 7th Symphony)]
