Roman Drunken God

Also known as BACCHAE

Sodden old God of Wine and Orgies

Oh, you know about him already do you?

This drunken rake used to be called LIBER, but changed his name to avoid arrest for indecent behavior.

Known as DIONYSUS among the Greek free-drinkers, he was constantly surrounded by nubile orgasmic ladies who called themselves Bacchae — although the Greeks called them MAENADS and the newspapers called them something else entirely.
