Satyroi

SUMMARY

Detail of a Mainas and Satyros from a scene depicting the company of Dionysos. The Satyros is draped with a panther skin and plays a double-flute. He has the features typical of his kind: horse's ears and tail, pug nose and eret member. The Mainas Nymphe wields a thyrsos (pine cone tipped staff) and has her head thrown back in an orgiastic dance.
