Satyr – Goat People: Greek Mythology

Satyrs are the companions of Dionysus, the god of wine, and they spent their time drinking, dancing, and chasing nymphs. The Italian version of the satyr is the faun, while the Slavic version is the “Ljeschi” a ancient mystery Early artistic representations sometimes include horse-like legs, but, in 6th-century BC black-figure pottery, human legs are the most common. Mature satyrs are often depicted in Roman art with goat’s horns, while juveniles are often shown with bony nubs on their foreheads. In Greek Mythology Satyrs are known for being a class of lustful, drunken woodland gods. As Dionysiac creatures they are lovers of wine and women, and they are ready for every physical pleasure. They roam to the music of pipes, cymbals, castanets, and bagpipes, and they love to chase maenads or bacchants (with whom they are obsessed, and whom they often pursue. In the ancient mystery of Greek mythology, satyrs are deities of the woods and mountains. They are half-human and half-beast they usually have a goat’s tail, flanks and hooves. But Satyrs can come in other hybrid human/animal forms, as well watch video for more from ancient mystery on youtube.
