Prosymnus & Dionysus • Πρόσυμνος & Διόνυσος So I just....this story was going fucking bonkers when bts announced “Dionysus” as a track on their album and lgbt twt took it and ran with it— Anyways the story is that a Sheppard named Prosymnus guided Dionysus to the underworld to help the god of wine and festivity to save his mother (this story is already a bit skewed for me since I’ve also seen his mother was killed by Hera and Dionysus was birthed from Zeus’s thigh) from the Underworld. For his help, Prosymnus asked that he be able to make love to the god in which he agreed to then went off to find his mother, Semele. Upon his return, he found the Sheppard had died and to honor their deal, he constructed a...dildo out of a fig and well did it on his tomb sksksks. The story was never told in full and so it was inferred by Christian authors so no one knows how true this legend it but then again it’s Greek mythology 🤷🏾‍♂️ - - - [ignore🌿: #greekmythology #ancientgreek #zeus #poseidon #hades #hecate #Nyx #Aphrodite #ares #Athena #apollo #artemis #hephaestus #demeter #persephone #prosymnus #dionysus #polymnus #mythology #psyche #greekmythologymemes #meme #memes #literature #history #mythologymemes #literaturememes #historymemes
