Bacchus was the Roman name given to the God of Wine and Ecstasy, whom the Greeks knew as Dionysus. He was a latecomer to the Olympic Pantheon and is most often said to be the son of Zeus by the mortal woman Semele. Though He is credited with discovering grapes and the art of winemaking, Dionysus was the God of more than Wine. He is the god of the wilds not the wilds of visible nature where Artemis reigns, but the wilds that extend so far and smile so deep in the secret regions of the human personality.
