Dionysus / God of Wine

To the Greeks, Dionysus was the god of  wine, the inspirer of ritual madness and ecstasy. To the Romans, he was  known as Bacchus. He was also known as the Liberator, freeing one from one's normal self by madness, ecstasy, or wine. The divine mission of Dionysus was to mingle the music of the aulos, an ancient greek musical instrument and to bring an end to care and worry.
