IPTC INFO
CaptionDionysus on a boat surrounded by dolphins and grape-bearing vines. Attic Black-figure kylix by Exekias c. 540-535 BCE. _______________________________________________ When Dionysos finally reveals himself in fullness to the Tyrrhenian pirates it is through vegetation. "Then in an instant a vine running along the topmost edge of the sail sprang up and sent out its branches in every direction heavy with thick-hanging clusters of grapes and around the mast cloud dark-leaved ivy rich in blossoms and bright with ripe berries and garlands crowned every tholepin." Homeric Hymn 7
