Dionysus, by Roberto Ferri. Dionysus  was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology. His name - now thought to be verified as being a theonym - in Linear B tablets as di-wo-nu-so (KH Gq 5 inscription), shows that he may have been worshipped as early as c. 1500–1100 BCE by Mycenean Greeks; other traces of the Dionysian-type cult have been found in ancient Minoan Crete.
