Bacchus, god of wine, was the son of Jupiter and Semele. He was born on the island of Naxos and Mercury led him to the mansion of the nymphs of Nysa, who took care to feed him. Silenus taught him to plant the vineyard and the Muses instructed him in song and dance. When the Giants jumped the sky, Bacchus, taking the form of a lion, he fought against them. He reached his majority Baco old, undertook the conquest of India.

One day we crossed the sandy deserts of Libya, feeling harassed by thirst, implored the help of Jupiter, and the prince of the gods gave rise to a ram which led to Baco to a source where he could quench thirst. Back in Greece, Bacchus married one of the daughters of the wise Minos, king of Crete, called Ariadne, who had been abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos. Baco unabashedly punished all those who refused to recognize him by God. The Mineidas and Lycurgus experienced the effects of his anger. The Mineidas were three: Iris, Klymene and Alcitoé. At that time it was to take place the festival of Bacchus, in which all the inhabitants of Orcomenes took part. Only Mineidas would not leave their shuttles and robbed Baco hours that were dedicated to him. Baco turned them into bats. A Lycurgus, King of Thrace edoni, ordered him out into the woods and left vermin for sending cut the strains of his kingdom.

The festivities in honor of Bacchus were called Bacchanalia. Bacchus is represented under the figure of a young crowned with ivy or vine leaves in his hand and a bunch of grapes well, well a drink. The Greeks sacrificed magpie, because wine and ivy produces indiscretion was his favorite plant.
