Dionysus and his Entourage

Ca. 50 a.C.. White marble.
Room 072

The static figure of Dionysus appears in the midst of the uncontrolled dance of his entourage, leaning on a small satyr, his servant. The relief highlights the contrast between his thoughtful posture and the enthusiasm of the satyr-flautist, and also between the soft body of the god and the muscles of the satyr. The other Maenads and satyrs who complemented the frieze of this decorative krater are missing.
