Dionysus (Bacchus) is the son of Zeus and the god of the vine (wine).
There were Greek festivals in honor of Dionysus and a theater of Dionysus in Athens. The terms Apollo and Dionysus are juxtaposed as contrasts or conflicts – restraint and reason vs. license; this concept was later written about by the German philosopher Friedich Nietzsche (1844-1900).
Dionysus is a ancient Greek god, the god of wine actually. He would bring hell to what some people would call partying. His effect would be either overdosing, madness, ecstasy, ect. The son of Zeus and Semele.
Also known as: The Liberator, Bacchus(The Roman name he adopted.), and the God Of Wine.

"Yeah, the question about Dionysus was probably the hardest one there."
