In Greek mythology, maenads (Ancient Greek: μαινάδες, mainádes) were the female followers of Dionysus (Bacchus in the Roman pantheon), the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by him into a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication

Trireme on modern dish, modeled on ancient greek dishes. GUH!

Ruins of a synagogue in Rhodos, Greece. Kahal Shalom was established in 1557 and was the oldest synagogue in Greece. Most of the 2000 jews were murdered or deported by the Germans in WWII. When I visited there, I sat on the step and paid silent homage to those who lost their lives.
