nature god. According to one myth, Bacchus is the son of Zeus and mortal woman,
Semele. Semele is killed by Zeus lightning bolts while Bacchus is in the womb.

his thigh. In another version, Bacchus is the son of the god Zeus and Persephone,
whom as an infant was lured with toys, and then destroyed with exception of his
heart. Zeus remakes his son from this heart. Hence, Bacchus is "e;twice born"e; leading
to his religious mythology.

their wine business with this Greek Deity.

pomegranate (a common fertility symbol), When she ate from it, she

(summer). The dying and blossoming of nature was thus connected with Demeter.
