Dionysus or Dionysos is the god of the grape-harvest, winemaking and wine, of fertility, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, festivity and theatre in ancient Greek religion and myth. He is also known as Bacchus (/ ˈ b æ k ə s / or / ˈ b ɑː k ə s /; Greek: Βάκχος, Bákkhos), the name adopted by the Romans; the frenzy he induces is thyrsus, sometimes wound with ivy and Children: Priapus, Hymen, Thoas, Staphylus.

Of this, the word came into modern usage through. Dionysism and Comedy (Greek Studies: Interdisciplinary Approaches) [] Summary This book investigates the idea of comic seriousness in Old Comedy.
