ATHENS – Athens Archaeological Museum – Satyr

In Greek mythology, satyrs are a troop of male companions of Pan and Dionysus that roamed the woods and mountains. In mythology they are often associated with sex drive and vase-painters often portrayed them with uncontrollable erections.The satyrs’ chief was called Silenus, a minor deity associated with fertility. These characters can be found in the only remaining satyr play Cyclops by Euripedes and the fragments of Sophocles’ The Tracking Satyrs. The satyr play was a lighthearted follow-up attached to the end of each trilogy of tragedies in Athenian festivals honoring Dionysus.
