GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

AMPELIUS

Greek legendary mortal

Son of a satyr and one of the NYMPHS, he was crazy about wine and viniculture.

AMPELIUS knocked about with DIONYSUS, but not for long. He died very young when he fell out of a vine-covered tree, or was tossed by a bull. The accident report is very vague. Maybe he was tossed into the tree by the bull, or fell out of the tree onto a bull.

He only gets a mention at all because DIONYSUS asked for him to be placed in the sky as a constellation. He hasn’t fallen out of the sky yet.
