Description: Ancient Roman Oil Lamp with Bacchus, God of Wine. The item is accompanied by a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.
The Greek god of Wine, Dionysis is also known as Bacchus (/ˈbækəs/ or /ˈbɑːkəs/; Greek: Βάκχος, Bakkhos), the name adopted by the Romans and the frenzy he induces is bakkheia. His thyrsus, sometimes wound with ivy and dripping with honey, is both a beneficent wand and a weapon used to destroy those who oppose his cult and the freedoms he represents. As Eleutherios ("the liberator"), his wine, music and ecstatic dance free his followers from self-conscious fear and care, and subvert the oppressive restraints of the powerful. Those who partake of his mysteries are possessed and empowered by the god himself.

    Prachtige bijlen. Voldoet precies aan de omschrijving.
    Snel verzonden en goed verpakt.

    Het "certificaat" is geen certificaat. Bij een certificaat van echtheid hoort een beschrijving en foto.
