It is said Bacchus was born of Jupiter’s illicit union with princess of Thebes, Semele. As an infant he was transported by Mercury to the Nymphs of Nysa, to avoid Juno’s jealous rage.
He then became the god of the vine and bared intoxicating powers. Juno killed his mother. Jupiter never welcomed it in his Olympus. He was half a good, half a man. He was rambling the world followed by his Satyrs and Maenads, but had no friends. One night, before passing out I heard him saying, ‘In no place I feel home, In no place I feel human’.
