IACCHUS

Greek Ceremonial God

Celebratory torch-bearer of Eleusian Mysteries

He is probably the son of Zeus and Demeter, making him the brother of Persephone, although there are rumors his dad is Dionysus in which case he is just a half brother.

Still with us? Good. He is associated with the Eleusian Mysteries whatever they are. Iacchus leads the mysterious celebrations bearing a torch. A flaming one, so we expect something gets burnt if not revealed.
