Gaziantep Museum 8167

The staggering god is Dionysos, drunk as usual. He is supported by Skyrtos, a satyr, wearing a panthers skin. Telete (in Greek = "rite," "ritual) stands to his other side and she is carrying a thyrsos, an implement of the Dionysiac mysteries, a snake making his way up the staff.
