Amymone and Poseidon Krater - Attic Red Figure Krater - Attributed to the Achilles Painter - c 475 - 425 B.C. - State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Amymone, a daughter of the Libyan king Danaus, is credited as the founder of the Mycenaean civilization which had a heavy Egyptian influence. Her symbol is the water jug which in my opinion is also a symbol of female sexuality …

The Libyan daughters of Danaus rejected forced marriage to the sons of the King of Egypt and fled to the Greek Isles. Herodotus credits them with founding the Eleusinian mysteries ...

Amymone and Poseidon




Baubo - or figurine of a woman with a water pitcher over a shaved vulva - from the Greco-Roman museum of Alexandria

Baubo was a key figure of the Eleusinian Mysteries - her open legs and vulva broke a famine caused by the distress of the goddess of the harvest Demeter who had lost her daughter Persephone or Isis to forced marriage to Hades, the king of Nysa.

Eventually Zeus was forced to bring Persephone back to Demeter - but Hades tricked her into spending every winter with him in the underworld ...

The water pitcher over an exposed vulva was a symbol of ancient Greek or Amazon “luxury” … and also an icon of the daughters of Danuas - and also an icon of the entire classical world ...

That was the “bull-jumper” civilization - White Egyptians to me … Although their source culture - Libya - was considered black African by Roman poets like Martial …

The bull jumpers on close observation were women with large mentules or female phalli and not men - Mycenaean men were farmers and probably sexually locked and sexual passives to phallic Amazons - Baubo clearly shows that sexual aggression was out in the open for female Mycenaeans - The images are bees and honey and dancing … Clearly a highly sexual society - but female driven Amazon sex ….

What probably happened is what boss lady is doing here - every Greek and Roman woman received a dildo from her father at marriage - The father “unbuckled” her girdle of Hippolyta - which was probably a strap on phallus - The pattern was polyandrous Roman and Greek matrons at all ages and who had to search for men to have sex with …

This ivory figurine has been challenged for its authenticity - but recent scholarship suggests it's the real thing - My guess is the obvious phallus on a clearly female bull jumper is the real problem:

" ... Although Lapatin’s argument for a thriving industry in Minoan forgeries is compelling, and he is not alone in suspecting the ROM goddess to be a forgery, there has not been any close study of the figure itself. It has been dismissed as fake by association with the other figurines, and because of the unique costume (which could have been a later addition), a combination of ‘female’ bodice and ‘male’ codpiece, unparalleled elsewhere in Minoan visual culture. ...

A Romano-Egyptian terracotta in the form of Isis-Aphrodite

(Sept 23, 2022) Below is a modern debunking of the temple prostitute tale - But I believe that tale - locked penis sex makes women the sexual aggressors - The female phallus does not exist in modern day Anglo-Saxon culture …


“ … Last time we saw that there is no evidence for temple prostitution in ancient Egypt. Yet we still find modern writers (usually very well-meaning ones discussing sacred sexuality) who relay the tale that Isis spent ten years as a prostitute in Tyre, that She was beloved by prostitutes, and that Her temples were located near brothels and were reputed to be good places to meet prostitutes.
Where does all that come from?

Well, this is definitely one of those “consider the source” situations.

The bit about prostitution in Tyre is from Epiphanius, a 4th century CE Christian bishop writing against what he sees as heresies. He complains about the sister-brother marriage of Isis and Osiris then launches into the prostitution accusation. There’s no other evidence of this story circulating at the time. He may have made it up. He may have confused Isis with Astarte or even with Simon Magus’ muse Helena, who was a prostitute in Tyre (before being recognized by Magus as the “Thought of God” and the reincarnation of Helen of Troy and rescued from her life of prostitution by the magician; but that’s a whole other story).

The “tradition” connecting Isis with prostitutes and prostitution comes from a couple of sources; both worthy of clear-eyed consideration (see above). Cyril, Christian bishop of Alexandria in the 5th century CE wrote that “the Egyptians,” especially the women (shock! horror! faint!), when they were made initiates of the religion of Isis “are deemed worthy of honor—therefore of wantonness.” (On Adoration in Spirit and Truth, 9) But before him, a number of Roman poets and satirists made such claims in relation to devotion to Isis. Her temples were supposed to be fabulous places to meet loose women. And then there was the famous Isiac scandal, told by the Jewish historian Josephus, in which a Roman matron was supposedly tricked into going to the Temple of Isis so that “Anubis” could sleep with her.

When you look more closely into these accusations and put them in context, you see that the poets complained not only of temples of Isis, but of anywhere in Rome where women either gathered (the temples of a wide variety of Goddesses as well as just about any public space, for instance) or went to protect their interests (such as courts of law). If women are allowed to run around loose, lewdness is sure to follow.

It’s pure misogyny, folks. (One of these poets, the appropriately named Juvenal, wrote a poem called Against Women, in case I have not already made myself sufficiently clear.)

Without seeing the irony, several of these poets would write about sexual immorality and the temples of Isis, then turn around and complain when their mistresses would abstain from sex for a period of ten days as part of their devotion to Isis. (This period of abstention was known as the Castimonium Isidis or “Chastity of Isis.” Surely it was intended as a purification prior to some important Isiac rite.)

In fact, we have far more evidence for morality and chastity among Roman Isiacs than we do for sexual promiscuity. I’m sure it happened. Humans. Sex. But it wasn’t part of the temple proceedings.

So now we know. But that was Rome, and rather late. What about Egypt?

We know there were exuberant religious celebrations that included drinking and dancing in Egypt. In the 5th century BCE, Herodotus notes a celebration for Bastet in which boats full of men and women traveled to Bubastis, laughing, singing, clapping, rattling (sistra?) and playing flutes, the women hurling ritual abuse at other women along the riverbank and some raising their skirts to expose themselves to the crowd. The historian notes that more wine was drunk during that festival than all the rest of the year. You know there was some drunken sex going on. Surely this was a festival meant to inspire fertility in the land and in the people. I’ll bet it did, too. Festivals of drunkenness were also celebrated for Hathor. And a recently discovered and translated papyrus, dating back 1900 years, appears to be a fictional story about a devotee of Mut who seduces someone into joining the sexy, drunken festivities for that Goddess.

I’m not aware of a festival of drunkenness for Isis. The emotionalism associated with Her cult is the sorrow of lamentation—and eventually the joy of reunion with the Beloved.

Yet there is still good reason to think of Isis and sex. After all, She is one of the Deities to Whom one prayed for children; and naturally, one must take physical-world action along with one’s prayers. Furthermore, the story of Isis and Osiris has at its heart a sexual coupling. The Goddess magically resurrects Her husband in order that They may make love one last time and so conceive Their child, Horus.
A very unusual 2002 find at Osiris’ temple at Abydos may provide some information. It appears to be a votive offering and shows a woman and man having intercourse. Unlike most Egyptian representations of sex, it is neither crude nor satirical. The man is particularly well endowed, and in contrast to most male-female depictions, the woman is shown larger than the man. Because of the fragmentary nature of the carving, we can’t be sure what sexual position is intended, but it may be that she is straddling him. If so, then perhaps this is because she is intended to be in the Isis (or Nuet) position of woman-on-top.

Best guess is that it was a votive offering to promote fertility, even though such offerings were usually in the form of a phallus or a “fertility figure” (such as one of the big-haired wasp-waisted “paddle” dolls). There was a separate shrine of Isis at Abydos, but  archeologists studying the votive have suggested that there might have also been an Isis shrine in the Osiris temple itself and thus the sexual votive would be even more appropriate. Sex is crucial to Isis and Osiris as well as to the Egyptian dead. Sex is part of the magic of renewal and rebirth. It is the magic Isis works with Osiris. It is the magic the Goddess in Her many names works for the dead. (See my post on Isis as a sexy Goddess here.)

In the early days of my relationship with Isis, one of the things She asked of me was that my lovemaking be given in Her name. Now, it could be that the researchers’ guess is correct and that the votive was an offering made to ask for fertility. But perhaps this unusual and somehow poignant votive offering was an expression of the same sort of thing that Isis asked of me so long ago. Perhaps it is a reminder that lovemaking is sacred, that it is a vital part of Isis’ magic of renewal, and that we should honor it as She does. … “

Roman sex was Isis-Aphrodite mentule/hare sex - Powerful Roman matrons like the daughter of Augustus was servicing the Roman elites openly in public spaces in defiance of her father who was bound by custom to defer to his daughter !

Thats the end result of the rites of Demeter - The return of Persephone or Isis from the underworld - and the resumption of Isis temple female phallus prostitution! The Roman Aphrodite had an erect phallus - and Romans were open about switched gender roles in her sex temples

Garden of Priapus - 1295

Large bosoms and female phallus in the mirror - Isis-Aphrodite in action probably!

- Those Louvre figurines above are surprisingly late - as late as the 4th century AD

Thats a controversial role for Isis - but the explicit melding of Isis and Aphrodite was a signal from the Roman Empire as to one of the roles of the Egyptian goddess - the female phallus …

This tradition probably survived until the end of the Mogul empire in India in the 19th century with the devadasi’s or dancing girls who symbolically married - but were actually sexually free … Isis married her brother Osiris - but he was sexually disabled - Isis was the phallic one …


The Grail King was also sexually disabled - had an "injury to the thigh" that needed a knight errant - Percival to heal ...


I am fairly certain that this Innana/Ishtar penis cage tradition is a missing link in Bhuddhism - as noted on the previous page Buddha had a restrained phallus and blue eyes - That was not really an Asian signal - it’s more “Aryan” - maybe even Greek or Trojan!


“ … Aphrodite was the patron goddess of prostitutes of all varieties, ranging from pornai (cheap street prostitutes typically owned as slaves by wealthy pimps) to hetairai (expensive, well-educated hired companions, who were usually self-employed and sometimes provided sex to their customers).

The city of Corinth was renowned throughout the ancient world for its many hetairai, who had a widespread reputation for being among the most skilled, but also the most expensive, prostitutes in the Greek world.. Corinth also had a major temple to Aphrodite located on the Acrocorinth and was one of the main centers of her cult. Records of numerous dedications to Aphrodite made by successful courtesans have survived in poems and in pottery inscriptions. References to Aphrodite in association with prostitution are found in Corinth as well as on the islands of Cyprus, Cythera, and Sicily.Aphrodite's Mesopotamian precursor Inanna-Ishtar was also closely associated with prostitution.

Scholars in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries believed that the cult of Aphrodite may have involved ritual prostitution, an assumption based on ambiguous passages in certain ancient texts, particularly a fragment of a skolion by the Boeotian poet Pindar,[which mentions prostitutes in Corinth in association with Aphrodite.Modern scholars now dismiss the notion of ritual prostitution in Greece as a "historiographic myth" with no factual basis….” Wikipedia

“ … Figure of Isis-Aphrodite
2nd century A.D.
Roman Period

 On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 138
Isis-Aphrodite is a form of the great goddess Isis that emphasizes the fertility aspects associated with Aphrodite. She was concerned with marriage and childbirth and, following very ancient pharaonic prototypes, also with rebirth. Elaborate accessories, including an exaggerated calathos (the crown of Egyptian Greco-Roman divinities) emblazoned with a tiny disk and horns of Isis, heighten the effect of her nudity.

Figures depicting this goddess are found in both domestic and funerary contexts. Popular already in the 3rd to 2nd centuries B.C., they continued to be made in Roman times. Dating technology places this piece in the Roman period, probably about AD 150, and the long narrow face and rather dry expression do not contradict such a date. … “ Met

Fragment from a nude Greek Egyptian Isis-Aphrodite with “Isis knot” between bare breasts

That's the very common “Isis knot” - My analysis is thats a symbol of the locked phallus of Osiris - or the engine of the aggressive eros of Greek Egyptian women ...

“ … Another type of knot is sometimes called the "Isis knot": a large knot in a mantle worn by Egyptian women from the Late Period onward. It is associated with Isis because it often appeared on statues of her in Hellenistic and Roman times, but apart from the name it is not related to the tyet.

The tyet can be compared with the Minoan sacral knot, a symbol of a knot with a projecting loop found in Knossos, Crete. … “ Wikipedia

“ … Terracotta figure of Hathor: showing her naked with her legs close together and her arms extended down her sides, her hands flat against the thighs. She has Isis-locks in a double layer back and front and falling on to the shoulders, and wears tightly woven wreaths bound with narrow ribbons. The jewellery consists of a plain necklace, a bracelet on the right wrist, an armlet and bracelet on the left arm and wrist, and an anklet on the right leg; a single breast-chain crossing from the right shoulder to the left waist has an oval fastening above the right breast, with two pendants. All the jewellery is modelled in relief, but a painted ribbon crosses the breast-chain from the left shoulder to the right waist. Details at the rear are well modelled. She of Nile silt and coated in a layer of white gypsum with painted decoration is on the front only. She has painted black hair, but the brows are brown, as are the breast-chain and other jewellery; the pubic triangle is also painted brown. The eyelids and pupils are a dull pink, the eyes and pupils are outlined in brown, and the irises are brown. The lips and nipples are painted bright pink and the bracelet on the right wrist has a pink ribbon tied above it, the loose ends hanging down the right thigh. There is pink paint between the feet and on some of the toes; some pink paint survives on the wreath. Hollow; two-piece mould. The figure is open at the crown of the head and under the feet: whether she wore a 'kalathos' now lost is uncertain. The legs are broken at the knees and repaired, with some restoration in plaster; there are other areas of repair.

… The circumstances of the acquisition of this and of registration no. 1895,0511.49 have been obscured. Budge (Budge 1920, 348–9) states that on a visit to Sohag in January 1896, he purchased some of a series of anthropoid coffins which were found. ‘In one tomb which had just been opened were the mummies and coffins and funerary equipment of a whole family of ten or twelve persons’ (including EA 29584-9). From the same source: ‘near one of the walls of the tomb were two narrow boxes, about 2 feet long, and each of these contained a gaudily-painted plaster (sic) figure of a large well-developed nude woman, who, judging by the colour and shape of the figures, could not have been a native of Egypt’(!). Budge reported both to the Principal Librarian of the Museum on 4 February 1896 and to the Trustees on 8 March 1896 that he had purchased material from this find, but does not mention the terracottas. The mummies from this tomb are discussed by Grimm (1974: 28, 30, 96–9 and 147–8) and are further comprehensively examined by Smith (1994: 293–303), who (p. 299) shows that Budge reported to the Trustees of the British Museum on the 3rd of May 1895 (before he went to Egypt) that our two figures came from Meir. Their Registration Numbers confirm the 1895 date of acquisition and their purchase from the Revd. Chauncey Murch, but the Register gives no provenance. Tuna el-Gebel, a necropolis of Hermopolis Magna, was once suggested on the objects’ gallery label, and this is certainly the site whence came some plaster coffin fragments acquired by the British Museum in May 1893 (ea 24779-83; Grimm 1974: 28 and 30), but which Budge (1920: 348–9) describes as coming from his Sohag/ Akhmim tomb in 1896 (Smith 1994: 299). It would seem that Budge in 1920 regarded the Meir terracottas, obtained from Murch in May 1895, as coming from the Sohag tomb he saw in January 1896 and material from which reached the Museum in March 1896. Our terracotta figures may be two or three centuries earlier than Budge’s Sohag mummies.

Her hair is tied in a bun at the nape of her neck, with two tightly coiled locks falling down her shoulders. Her head is turned to the left and directed downwards, whilst incised pupils show her gaze to be looking up. The right hand is held close her right breast, the thumb and forefinger pressed together as she pinches her nipple, her left arm partially extended, bent at the elbow, the fingers clasped as if to hold an attribute now missing.

She stands on a footed hexagonal base with small overhang, her left heel delicately raised so that her big toe is free of the ground, the toenails incised. Hollow cast with a strong green and red patina. The horizontal plumes of the crown now missing. Break to her right leg above the ankle.

" ... Untangling The Real Details Of Cleopatra's Epic And Mythic Sex Life -
Melissa Sartore

 September 23, 2021

Theories about Cleopatra's lovers - and her sexual proclivities - abound. She was married to her brothers, bedded at least two powerful Roman men, and may have fashioned a vibrator using bees. The history of Cleopatra's sex life is both in keeping with the Egyptian sexual mores of her time and potentially taboo by modern standards.

Was she the beautiful temptress she was made out to be? Did she dominate the men in her life? Facts about Cleopatra's sex life remind you how she used sexuality for power and did it pretty well. She got what she wanted, indicating she was as intelligent and charming as she was sexy.

Cleopatra May Have Pleasured Herself With Bees
According to legend, Cleopatra fashioned a vibrating device for self-pleasure by putting angry bees into a hollowed-out gourd. In other versions of the story, Cleopatra sat on top of a papyrus box of angry bees. 
If true, she's not the only Egyptian to bring animals into the bedroom. There were accounts of men engaging in intercourse with cattle, women doing the same with dogs, and Egyptians successfully figuring out how to do the deed with crocodiles.

Crocodiles could also help prevent pregnancy. The animal's dung was a common contraceptive. 

Cleopatra Was Supposedly Skilled In A Certain Form Of Lovemaking
Cleopatra was known as "Meriochane" by the Greeks - a term that literally translates to "she who gapes wide for 10,000 men." According to legend, she "fellated 100 men" in a single night. She supposedly used her affinity for this act to seduce Julius Caesar. 

Cleopatra Was Probably The Product Of Inbreeding
Cleopatra was the daughter of King Ptolemy XII Auletes, a Macedonian who became the king of Egypt in 80 BCE. The identity of Cleopatra's mother is not known for certain, but it was either one of Auletes's concubines or his sister-wife, Cleopatra V Tryphaeana.

It was common in Egypt for rulers to marry family members - cousins or siblings, most often - in order to keep bloodlines pure. It's very possible that Cleopatra resulted from one of these relationships.

Cleopatra Married Her 2 Brothers When They Were Children
In keeping with Egyptian custom, Cleopatra married her brother, Ptolemy XIII, after her father passed away in 51 BCE. Her father designated Cleopatra and her brother as co-regents before his passing because, by Egyptian law, she had to have a male co-ruler. At the time of their marriage, Ptolemy XIII was between 10 and 12 years old, something Cleopatra used to her advantage. She quickly pushed aside her brother, issuing administrative documents in her name only and putting her likeness on coinage.
After three years of this, however, Ptolemy XIII forced Cleopatra into exile. She fled to Syria where she seduced the Roman general Julius Caesar and persuaded him to recapture the Egyptian throne on her behalf. Ptolemy XIII fled and later perished.

When Cleopatra returned to Egypt, she married her other young brother, Ptolemy XIV. Somewhere between 11 and 13 years old at the time, Ptolemy XIV and Cleopatra co-ruled until Ptolemy perished in 44 BCE. After that, Cleopatra co-ruled with her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion.

Cleopatra Organized Orgies That Lasted For Days
Cleopatra supposedly arranged weeks-long sexually charged parties with her lover Mark Antony. They founded a group known as the Inimitable Livers, or the Society of Inimitable Livers, who lived the good life and, according to historians, engaged in endless debauchery and folly.
They feasted, played games, and partied on the outskirts of Alexandria, most likely a cult dedicated to the god Dionysis. They often staged "lewd theatricals," in which people danced nude while drinking to excess.

She Tried To Seduce Herod Of Judea, And It Almost Got Her Killed
Cleopatra and Mark Antony, her Roman lover, parted ways for a time while the latter fought in Armenia. Cleopatra made her way to Judea where Herod the Great, a client king of Rome, already resented her because Antony had given Cleopatra much of his land. This didn't stop her from having a "criminal conversation" with Herod. According to historian Josephus:

“[P]erhaps she had in some measure, a passion of love to him; or rather, what is most probable, she laid a treacherous snare for him, by aiming to obtain such adulterous conversation from him. However, upon the whole, she seemed overcome with love to him.”

Herod was not sure how to respond to Cleopatra's advances and called together a council of friends to decide whether he should end her life for making such treasonous advances. The council talked him out of it, saying Antony would retaliate. Herod thought Antony would be better served if she were out of the picture, but he followed their advice and simply escorted Cleopatra to Egypt. 

Cleopatra Had Mark Antony Wrapped Around Her Finger
Cleopatra's power over Mark Antony apparently knew no end. The two began their affair in 40 BCE, a year after forming a political alliance. 

Either way, Antony resided in Alexandria with Cleopatra for a time before returning to Rome. He married Octavia, sister to the Roman emperor Octavian, then returned to Egypt where Cleopatra had given birth to their two children. The pair went on to have a total of three children together.
As the relationship continued, Octavian and Antony barely managed to keep peace between them as they vied for power in the Roman Empire. The debauched life Antony and Cleopatra were said to be leading, combined with the slight to Octavia, drove Octavian to declare war against Cleopatra and strip Antony of his powers in 32 BCE. 

Accounts Differ Widely On Cleopatra's Beauty
Roman historians describe Cleopatra as "a woman who was haughty and astonishingly proud in the matter of beauty" and having "the beauty of the damsel," but there are mixed accounts of how much of that beauty was real, and how much was propaganda. Based on the coinage with Cleopatra's profile on it, she had a large nose and chin. 
It's possible she wanted herself to be presented in a form that displayed power rather than beauty. Even if she wasn't the bombshell Hollywood would have us believe, she certainly had the charm, intellect, and cunning to use her sexuality effectively.

If she was unattractive, it's quite likely that her contemporaries would have said as much. They didn't shy away from calling her a "whore," so there's no reason they wouldn't have exaggerated her appearance for the worse as well.

Roman Poets And Historians Called Cleopatra A Lot Of Horrible Things
Because of her influence on Roman men - and very public sexual habits - Cleopatra was constantly vilified by poets and historians. Poetry produced during the time of Octavian placed her in opposition to the emperor's sister, Octavia, the slighted wife of Mark Antony. Cleopatra was mocked as a greedy, hedonistic Egyptian who benefited from a scandalous marriage.

Those characterizations are relatively tame to compared to those made by Sextus Propertius, a first-century BCE poet, who called her "a woman worn out by her own attendants." Juvenal claimed she visited cathouses at night, painting her as a prostitute. Cassius Dio, a second-century Roman historian, called her "a woman of insatiable sexuality and insatiable avarice." 

Her Relationship With Julius Caesar Was Adulterous For Both Of Them
When Cleopatra seduced Julius Caesar - she famously had herself smuggled in to see him by way of a "bed sack," a rug, or a bedroll, depending on the source - she's said to have immediately captivated him. At the time, Cleopatra was married to her brother and co-ruler Ptolemy XIII. She was only about 21 years old at the time, but Caesar was well in his 50s and on his third wife, Calpurnia.
Their marriages didn't stop them from continuing their affair and producing a child, Caesarion. Cleopatra even went to Rome to be with Caesar in 45 BCE, albeit with her second co-ruling brother Ptolemy XIV. She stayed in Rome until one month after Caesar's demise in 44 BCE, then returned to Egypt.

When Octavian Resisted Cleopatra's Advances, She Took Her Own Life
There are different versions of Cleopatra's attempts to get Octavian into bed, but they all end with Octavian resisting her. In one telling, Cleopatra tried to lure Octavian into her sexual web shortly after Mark Antony's defeat at Actium and subsequent suicide. As a prisoner, she gained an audience with Octavian. According to historian Cassius Dio:
She accordingly prepared a splendid apartment and a costly couch, and moreover arrayed herself with affected negligence, — indeed, her mourning garb wonderfully became her — and seated herself upon the couch; beside her she placed many images of his father, of all kinds, and in her bosom she put all the letters that his father had sent her. [...] She spoke in melting tones [...] and sweet were the glances she cast at him and the words she murmured to him. 

Octavian was able to resist Cleopatra, but he wanted to take her back to Rome to parade her in triumph, so he didn't rebuke her directly. Before he could transport her, however, she took her own life. … “ ranker

“ .. The Eleusinian Mysteries were initiations held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at the Panhellenic Sanctuary of Elefsina in ancient Greece. They are the "most famous of the secret religious rites of ancient Greece".Their basis was an old agrarian cult, and there is some evidence that they were derived from the religious practices of the Mycenean period. The Mysteries represented the myth of the abduction of Persephone from her mother Demeter by the king of the underworld Hades, in a cycle with three phases: the descent (loss), the search, and the ascent, with the main theme being the ascent of Persephone and the reunion with her mother. It was a major festival during the Hellenic era, and later spread to Rome.  Similar religious rites appear in the agricultural societies of the Near East and in Minoan Crete.

The rites, ceremonies, and beliefs were kept secret and consistently preserved from antiquity.[For the initiated, the rebirth of Persephone symbolized the eternity of life which flows from generation to generation, and they believed that they would have a reward in the afterlife.

There are many paintings and pieces of pottery that depict various aspects of the Mysteries. Since the Mysteries involved visions and conjuring of an afterlife, some scholars believe that the power and longevity of the Eleusinian Mysteries, a consistent set of rites, ceremonies and experiences that spanned two millennia, came from psychedelic drugs. … “ Wikipedia

Isis was daughter to Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the Sky, and wife of Osiris. Oftentimes shown as the mother of Horus, she is also known as a protector of children. In addition to being revered as the ideal mother and wife, Isis was revered as the patroness of magic and nature, a supporter of sinners, slaves, and artisans as well as a friend to rulers and the wealthy.

Shaved vulva meaning married sexually free woman - Snake rising on the pillar is the rising heat of the “earth sun” - Access to that is easier when the penis is locked up ,,, In Egypt all men were locked … So the earth sun snake made repeated visits !


“ … Since the 1950s scholars have debated whether or not the Esquiline Venus—discovered in 1874 on the Esquiline Hill in Rome and housed in the Palazzo dei Conservatori of the Capitoline Museums—is a depiction of Cleopatra, based on the statue's hairstyle and facial features, apparent royal diadem worn over the head, and the uraeus Egyptian cobra wrapped around the base. Detractors of this theory argue that the face in this statue is thinner than the face on the Berlin portrait and assert that it was unlikely she would be depicted as the naked goddess Venus (or the Greek Aphrodite). However, she was depicted in an Egyptian statue as the goddess Isis, while some of her coinage depicts her as Venus-Aphrodite.

The rites of Dionysus featured a dildo made of fig-wood:

“ … There are a myth involving a homoerotic relationship with Ampelos, a sweet youth, and Prosymnos, his guide to the realm of Hades. When Dionysos goes to Hades to retrieve his mother, Semele, to bring her to Olympus, he meets Prosymnos on the way. According to Arthur Evans in his book The God of Ecstasy, Christian writer Clement of Alexandria reports:

Dionysos wanted to descend to Hades but did not know the way. A certain Prosymnos promised to show him for a price. The price was indecent but not for Dionysos. The price he asked of Dionysos was a sexual favor. (Evans 34)

Upon his return from the underworld, Dionysos can’t locate Prosymnos because he has died and instead has sex with a wooden dildo made from the branch of a fig tree in order to pay his due to his guide. … “ carnaval


“ … Prosymnus  (also known as Polymnus and Hypolipnus) was, in Greek mythology, a shepherd living near the reputedly bottomless Alcyonian Lake, hazardous to swimmers, which lay in the Argolid, on the coast of the Gulf of Argos, near the prehistoric site of Lerna.

When the wine god Dionysus went to Hades to rescue his mother Semele, Prosymnus guided him to the entrance by rowing him to the middle of the lake. The reward demanded by Prosymnus for this service was the right to make love to Dionysus. However, when Dionysus returned to earth by a different route, he found that Prosymnus had meanwhile died. Dionysus kept his promise by carving a piece of fig wood into the shape of a phallus and used it to ritually fulfill his promise to Prosymnus, while seated on his tomb. This, it is said, was given as an explanation of the presence of a fig-wood phallus among the secret objects revealed in the course of the Dionysian Mysteries.

This story is not told in full by any of the usual sources of Greek mythological tales, though several of them hint at it. It is reconstructed on the basis of statements by Christian authors; these have to be treated with reserve because their aim is to discredit pagan mythology.

Annual nocturnal rites took place at the Alcyonian Lake in classical times; Pausanias refuses to describe them. … “ Wikipedia


The dildo in Dionysus was probably a Minoan rite: Dionysus was asked for a sexual favor by a guide to the “Alcyonian Lake, hazardous to swimmers, which lay in the Argolid” - The Argolid was where the daughters of Danaus settled in Greece founding the Mycenaean civilization after fleeing the king of Egypt … That dildo was certainly an basic tool of the phallic Egyptian woman over the penis locked Egyptian male …

“ … Dido , also known as Elissa , was the legendary founder and first queen of the Phoenician city-state of Carthage, located in modern Tunisia.

Isis knot over bare breasts and an unshaven vulva - probably an unmarried maiden. Marriage was when her bull dildo came into the picture - usually from her father's "mes" in the Sumerian tradition. The Isis knot was the lock on her husband’s phallus …


The bull dildo was a basic part of the rites of Dionysus - my guess is that was a Minoan tradition - the rites of the Alcyonian Lake - Dionysus paid his guide to the underworld with sexual favors that required a dildo - That had to be passive sex under a phallic Amazon like Ampelos - as a male would not need a dildo … Dildo fire sex energy is probably needed to both enter and exit Hades - I am fairly sure of that - The dream world has an “energy tax”:

“ … To the ancient minds, the origins of the springs at Lerna – like many bodies of water in ancient times – had to be the work Poseidon, the god of the sea. So these springs were a gift from Poseidon when he courted Amymone, one of the daughters of Danaus, king of Argos. Their son was Nauplius, meaning ‘navigator’, which became the name for the port of Argos.

Danaus and his twin brother Aegyptus were the sons of Belus, a mythical king of Egypt, who gave the kingdom of Libya to Danaus, and Arabia to his brother. Aegyptus had fifty sons, mercifully from different wives, whereas Danaus had fifty daughters. Thus Aegyptus was the more powerful king. He conquered Egypt, then plotted to kill Danaus and take his lands. Danaus escaped to Argos with his daughters, the Danaids, with Aegyptus’ sons in hot pursuit. To save himself and Argos, Danaus offered his daughters as wives to them. On their wedding night, all but one of Danaids beheaded their husbands and threw their heads into the Lake of Lerna (Alcyonian Lake).

The deadly, bottomless lake was believed to be an entrance to the Underworld. Dionysus, god of the wine harvest, reputedly entered and freed his mother, Semele (yet another mortal wife of Zeus) from Hades, bringing her back to life. This was also the venue for the worship of Demeter (goddess of the harvest) in the ancient Lernaean Mysteries, similar to the rituals that took place at Eleusis. …. “ eternalgreece.

Boss lady, bull dildo, locked phallus, Swastika : The rites of the Alcyonian Lake - Dionysus paid his guide to the underworld by submitting to a bull dildo

- The Swastika is historical - there are swastika coins from Thrace above where nude sexually caged black Africans with "hares" or penis caged erections dance with clothed Greek maidens … My guess is coitus under Amazon bull phalli followed the dances :

“ … Lerna is a city and fountain in a swampy region south of Argos, known for the quality of its water:

"The dinner being slow in coming, a discussion arose concerning water—which was the sweetest? Some praised the water of Lerna, others, again, the water of Peirene …" 

(Athenaeus, Deipnosophistae 4.156e).

… which was, they say, the gift that Poseidon gave to the region when he met Amymone, one of the DANAIDS. That is why it was also said from old:

"The daughters of Danaus rendered Argos, which was waterless, Argos the well watered …"

And the geographer Strabo adds:

"And Lake Lerna, the scene of the story of the Hydra, lies in Argeia and the Mycenaean territory; and on account of the cleansings that take place in it there arose a proverb, 'A Lerna of ills.' Now writers agree that the county has plenty of water, and that, although the city itself lies in a waterless district, it has an abundance of wells. These wells they ascribe to the daughters of Danaus, believing that they discovered them … but they add that four of the wells not only were designated as sacred but are especially revered, thus introducing the false notion that there is a lack of water where there is an abundance of it." 

(Strabo, Geography 8.6.8).

And concerning the cleansings and sacred ceremonies that took place at Lerna, it has also been said that

"On Mount Crathis (northern Arcadia, bordering Achaea). is a sanctuary of Artemis Pyronia (Fire-goddess), and in more ancient days the Argives used to bring from this goddess fire for their Lernaean ceremonies." 

(Pausanias, Description of Greece 8.15.8).

The mysteries of Lerna were established, they say, by Philammon (Pau.2.37.1), son of Apollo (or perhaps of Hephaestus), and father of Thamyris, the minstrel who lost his eyes in a contest with the MUSES. According to some accounts, it was near Lerna that Hades descended to the Underworld when he carried off Persephone. Thus in Lerna the mysteries in honour of Lernaean Demeter (mother of Persephone) were celebrated (Pau.2.36.6). And also yearly nocturnal rites in honour of Dionysus were performed at Lerna, the contents of which are not divulged by the traveller Pausanias, who always abides, in these matters, by his usual reservation.

For also Dionysus descended to the Underworld in this place (the Alcyonian Lake) when he went down in search of his mother Semele.

Concerning the depth of this lake's perilous waters, says Pausanias:

"There is no limit to the depth of the Alcyonian Lake, and I know of nobody who by any contrivance has been able to reach the bottom of it since not even Nero, who had ropes made several stades long and fastened them together, tying lead to them, and omitting nothing that might help his experiment, was able to discover any limit to its depth. This, too, I heard. The water of the lake is, to all appearance, calm and quiet but, although it is such to look at, every swimmer who ventures to cross it is dragged down, sucked into the depths, and swept away." 

(Pausanias, Description of Greece 2.37.4).

Yet, some have regarded Lerna as a fertile district even before that time. For they have represented the dreams that guided Io as saying:

"O damsel greatly blessed of fortune, why linger in your maidenhood so long when it is within your power to win a union of the highest? Zeus is inflamed by passion's dart for you and is eager to unite with you in love. Do not, my child, spurn the bed of Zeus, but go forth to Lerna's meadow land of pastures deep and to your father's flocks and where his cattle feed, so that the eye of Zeus may find respite from its longing." 

(Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 650).

Having obeyed the dreams, Io was embraced by Zeus, and then turned into a cow and forced to wander over the whole world:

"… with horns … upon my forehead … stung by a sharp-fanged gadfly I rushed with frantic bounds to Cerchnea's sweet stream and Lerna's spring." 

(Io to Prometheus 1. Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 675).

This story was later disbelieved, and the disappearance of Io was attributed to the perfidy of Phoenician merchants, who kidnapped her and brought her to Egypt:

"On the fifth or sixth day after their arrival, when their wares were almost all sold, many women came to the shore and among them especially the daughter of the king, whose name was Io (according to Persians and Greeks alike), the daughter of Inachus. As these stood about the stern of the ship bargaining for the wares they liked, the Phoenicians incited one another to set upon them. Most of the women escaped: Io and others were seized and thrown into the ship, which then sailed away for Egypt." 

(Herodotus, History 1.1.3).

Apparently, no evidence was ever produced to prove that charge against the Phoenicians. But since the tale of Io turning into a cow and being loved by a god came to be regarded as unlikely, the Phoenicians were, with or without evidence, thoroughly cursed:

"My curse, first, upon the Carnite (Phoenician) sailor hounds! the merchant wolves who carried off from Lerna the ox-eyed girl (Io) …" 

(Cassandra. Lycophron, Alexandra 1291).

Accordingly, later abductions were regarded as retaliations for the first. Thus when the Europeans carried off the Phoenician princess Europa, they believed that Asia and Europe were then even. However, that was taken as yet one loop in the chain of affronts that Asia and Europe inflicted upon each other.

In Egypt, Io gave birth to Epaphus, son of Zeus. Epaphus  fathered Libya, who having consorted with Poseidon, gave birth, among others, to Belus . Belus , who inherited the kingdom of Egypt, married Anchinoe (daughter of Nilus), and had by her many children, among which Danaus and Aegyptus. Danaus felt threatened by Aegyptus and his fifty sons, and decided that he and his fifty daughters would leave Egypt and emigrate to Argos, the country of their ancestor Io. After having touched Rhodes, Danaus 1 arrived to Argos, then ruled by Gelanor (whom Danaus 1 overthrew), or perhaps by Pelasgus . The sons of Aegyptus , however, came after them and demanded to be wedded to the daughters of Danaus (the DANAIDS). Danaus, being threatened, consented to the marriage, and allotted his daughters among them. But at the same time, he instructed the girls to kill the bridegrooms on their wedding night, giving them daggers for that purpose.

The heads of the bridegrooms
Thus all the DANAIDS except one killed their bridegrooms on their wedding night, burying their heads in Lerna. Now, some may think that the many heads of the Lernaean Hydra—a monster that appeared afterwards—could be the reincarnated heads of the murdered bridegrooms, a curse from the past. However, others have affirmed that the bodies of the sons of Aegyptus were buried by the DANAIDS in Lerna, and not the heads, which were buried in Larisa, the citadel of Argos. It is said that the girls were purified of their crime by Athena and Hermes at the command of Zeus. Yet, it is also told that the DANAIDS are still being punished in the Underworld for their crime.

Poseidon grants water
Before these bloody events, Poseidon and Hera had a dispute for the patronage of Argos, and a tribunal of three RIVER GODS—Inachus (father of Io), Cephisus, and Asterion —decided that the territory would belong to Hera and not to Poseidon. Disappointed with this ruling, the god made their waters disappear, so that their streams being dry during the summer, they would never provide any water except after rain. In addition, Poseidon, disappointed with the decision of the RIVER GODS, inundated many of the region's districts because. Lerna was, however, excepted; for it was here that Amymone (one of the DANAIDS) yielded to Poseidon on condition that she might have water, and the god, being in love with her, revealed to her the springs at Lerna. This happened when Danaus sent his daughters to draw water. Amymone, apparently combining her search for water with hunting, threw a dart at a deer, hitting a sleeping Satyr, who then attempted to rape her. It was then that Poseidon appeared, and having driven the Satyr away, lay with the girl, revealing to her the springs at Lerna. It is told that the god hurled his trident at the Satyr and that it became fixed in a rock. Then he asked Amymone what she was doing in the wilderness, and as she replied that her father had sent her to get water, the god bid her to draw the trident from the rock. And when she did so, three streams of water flowed from the earth (one for each of the trident's prongs). That was the gift that Poseidon bestowed on the girl in exchange for her love—more than the Satyr could ever have offered her (if anything). And from their union, Nauplius (the father of Palamedes) was born, as some say. But others deny this, arguing that Nauplius, being still alive after the end of the Trojan War, could by no means be the son of the Danaid, who lived many generations before him:

"After Temenium comes Nauplia, the naval station of the Argives: and the name is derived from the fact that the place is accessible to ships. And it is on the basis of this name, it is said, that the myth of Nauplius and his sons has been fabricated by the more recent writers of myth, for Homer would not have failed to mention these, if Palamedes had displayed such wisdom and sagacity, and if he was unjustly and treacherously murdered, and if Nauplius wrought destruction to so many men at Cape Caphereus. But in addition to its fabulous character the genealogy of Nauplius is also wholly incorrect in respect to the times involved; for, granting that he was the son of Poseidon, how could a man who was still alive at the time of the Trojan war have been the son of Amymone?" 

(Strabo, Geography 8.6.2).

The mythographer Apollodorus was well aware of this, since he writes:

"Amymone had a son Nauplius by Poseidon. This Nauplius lived to a great age …" 

(Apollodorus, Library "Epitome" 2.1.5).

But Apollodorus does not argue on the issue of the age of Nauplius , and few could in fact guess for how long the son of a god might live. Zeus, for example, granted life for three generations to his son Sarpedon  … And concerning naval stations, Lerna apparently was one, since we read that Heracles's son Tlepolemus, the leader of the Rhodians against Troy (who, by the way, was killed in the war by the same Sarpedon ), sailed to Rhodes from Lerna when he emigrated to the island. Coincidentally (but sailing in the opposite direction), Danaus had landed in a place near Lerna, after having touched Rhodes, on his way from Egypt

(Apd.2.1.4; Pau.2.38.4).

The Hydra of Lerna
Swampy Lerna gained even more renown when Heracles  performed there his second Labour, which consisted in destroying the Hydra, a beast with nine heads, eight of which were mortal, the middle one being immortal; or else with one hundred heads of serpent, or even countless heads (the scepticism of later authors proclaimed that the Hydra had only one head). Some say that the monster was so poisonous that she could kill a man with her breath. The Hydra of Lerna, offspring of Typhon and Echidna, was nourished by Hera, who was then angry at Heracles . Having discovered the Hydra on a hill beside the Amymonian springs, Heracles  attacked the monster with fiery shafts to force it to come forth. Then he commanded his helper Iolaus to prevent new heads from sprouting by searing with a burning brand the part that had been severed. In that way the flow of the Hydra's blood was checked in its necks, and after cutting off all the mortal heads, Heracles  chopped off the immortal one as well. This one he buried beside the road that leads from Lerna to Elaeus, putting a heavy rock on it. Heracles then slit up the body of the Hydra and dipped his arrows in its gall; for this reason the wounds produced by his arrows became incurable, as that of Chiron, that of the Centaur Pholus, that of Geryon, and that of Paris (who was killed by Philoctetes, the man who inherited Heracles's bow and arrows). And indeed the slayer of the Hydra himself was, years later, destroyed by its venom, through the love-charm that the Centaur Nessus gave to Heracles's wife Deianira. ... "

He who
could call

call Semele

Martial, Epigrams. Book 5. Bohn's Classical Library (1897)

The Greeks and Romans maintained the Minoan tradition of the female phallus!

Lake Lerna which in Nero’s days was so deep that Nero was unable to find its bottom has vanished - that seems incredible to me:

“ … Modern geological techniques such as core drilling have identified the site of the vanished sacred Lake Lerna, which was a freshwater lagoon, separated by barrier dunes from the Aegean. In the Early Bronze Age Lake Lerna had an estimated diameter of 4.7 km. Deforestation increased the rate of silt deposits and the lake became a malarial marsh, of which the last remnants were drained in the nineteenth century. … “ Wikipedia


“ … Lerna was one of the entrances to the Underworld, and the ancient Lernaean Mysteries, sacred to Demeter, were celebrated there. Pausanias (2.37.1) says that the mysteries were initiated by Philammon, the twin "other" of Autolycus. Heroes could gain entry to the netherworld via the Alcyonian Lake. Prosymnus aided Dionysus in his search for his mother Semele by guiding him to this entrance. For mortals the lake was perilous; Pausanias writes:

There is no limit to the depth of the Alcyonian Lake, and I know of nobody who by any contrivance has been able to reach the bottom of it since not even Nero, who had ropes made several stades long and fastened them together, tying lead to them, and omitting nothing that might help his experiment, was able to discover any limit to its depth. This, too, I heard. The water of the lake is, to all appearance, calm and quiet but, although it is such to look at, every swimmer who ventures to cross it is dragged down, sucked into the depths, and swept away.

At Lerna, Plutarch knew (Isis and Osiris), Dionysus was summoned as "Bugenes", "son of the Bull" with a strange archaic trumpet called a salpinx, while a lamb was cast into the waters as an offering for the "Keeper of the Gate." The keeper of the gate to the Underworld that lay in the waters of Lerna was the Hydra. … “ Wikipedia

(Oct 2, 2022) Imperial Roman Egyptian Baubo - That was most certainly a doorway to the now closed Lake Lerna in Argos, Greece! Baubo has the energy to open that door , but Baubo is rare today . My guess is Lake Lerna still exists - But nobody has enough energy to find it!

I also think the the Hydra is no longer contained! She’s probably a world power today - Her poison was Hera’s private plaything … And that’s real poison - I felt it where I always feel it .- in my teeth, and in my head !.. But I usually get over it!

(Oct 3, 2022) dream images of this Louvre Baubo work is a shower of red petals falling down ! Also clitoral masturbation … Pleasure for sure - but the energy flow is just as important

- The wells and lakes of old like Lake Lerna are dry as bones and the pleasure and clitoral flow have stopped …


That’s one thing I noticed when I spent a year in Kenya in 2012 - no water … In 1981 - before I was kidnapped to Ethiopia and Switzerland and the US - we used to have free flowing tap water in Karen - which has now become an exclusive area - but no longer has running tap water … I got the impression of a malicious cut off … Water is a psychological thing! ...

Or when Karen was a British and Boer farm area - the water was free flowing - Population growth may be an answer for the loss of water - and climate change, for sure - but my analysis is more psychological ... The Kenyan British and Boers were pleasure seekers - hence the flow ... The current residents of that space are more gold fixated ... Lord Pluto is the god of gold and famine and poverty ... all at once ...

Masturbating Baubo from Turkey or Tarsus, Asia Minor - The question is what was she masuturbating to? Must have been a “hare” or penis caged erection - That’s a scene from the Satyricon - the crone fondled a young “hare” to erection in front of a young servant girl and then sodomised him with dildo’s - Eros was not lewd - it was sacred to Venus, Aphrodite and Isis who even worked as a prostitute …

Garden of Priapus - 1385

General, whip, dildo, penis cage - That’s what happened after those Baubo masturbation sessions …

The symbols of Dionysus point to an Amazon cult … The Dionysus phallus was the dildo and many times Dionysus is really a female in male clothing …

And the central rite of the religion involved that dildo - Dionysus paid his guide to rescue his mother Semele from Hades by submitting to sex with a dildo cut from a piece of fig-tree wood ... That was code for the female phallus - a man would not need a dildo ....

Livy, the principal Roman literary source on the early Bacchanalia, names Paculla Annia, a Campanian priestess of Bacchus, as the founder of a private, unofficial Bacchanalia cult in Rome, based at the grove of Stimula, where the western slope of the Aventine Hill descends to the Tiber. The Aventine was an ethnically mixed district, strongly identified with Rome's plebeian class and the ingress of new and foreign cults. The wine and fertility god Liber Pater ("The Free Father"), divine patron of plebeian rights, freedoms and augury, had a long-established official cult in the nearby temple he shared with Ceres and Libera.  Most Roman sources describe him as Rome's equivalent to Dionysus and Bacchus, both of whom were sometimes titled Eleutherios (liberator).

Livy claims the earliest version of the Bacchanalia was open to women only, and held on three days of the year, in daylight; while in nearby Etruria, north of Rome, a "Greek of humble origin, versed in sacrifices and soothsaying" had established a nocturnal version, added wine and feasting to the mix, and thus acquired an enthusiastic following of women and men. The nocturnal version of the Bacchanalia involved wine-drinking to excess, drunkenness and the free mingling of the sexes and classes; the rites also involved loud music.

According to Livy's account, Publius Aebutius of the Aebutia (gens) was warned against the cult and its excesses by a courtesan, Hispala Faecenia. The Senate appointed Spurius Postumius Albinus and Quintus Marcius Philippus to investigate the cult. The inquiry claimed that under the cover of religion, priests and acolytes broke civil, moral and religious laws with impunity; weak-minded individuals could be persuaded to commit ritual or political murders undetected, at the behest of those who secretly controlled the cult, right in the heart of Rome. Livy claims that the cult held particular appeal to those of uneducated and fickle mind (levitas animi), such as the young, plebeians, women and "men most like women", and that most of the city's population was involved, even some members of Rome's highest class.

… Livy's account of the Bacchanalia has been described as "tendentious to say the least". As a political and social conservative, he had a deep mistrust of mystery religions, and probably understood any form of Bacchanalia as a sign of Roman degeneracy. Though most of his dramatis personae are known historical figures, their speeches are implausibly circumstantial, and his characters, tropes and plot developments draw more from Roman satyr plays than from the Bacchanalia themselves. Paculla Annia is unlikely to have introduced all the changes he attributes to her.

For Livy, the cult's greatest offences arose from indiscriminate mixing of freeborn Romans of both sexes and all ages at night, a time when passions are easily aroused, especially given wine and unrestricted opportunity. Women at these gatherings, he says, outnumbered men; and his account has the consul Postumius stress the overwhelmingly female nature and organisation of the cult.

Yet the Senatus consultum de Bacchanalibus itself allows women to outnumber men, by three to two, at any permitted gathering; and it expressly forbids Bacchic priesthoods to men. Livy's own narrative names all but one of the offending cult leaders as male, which seems to eliminate any perceived "conspiracy of women". Gender seems to have motivated the Senate's response no more than any other cause.

Livy's consistent negative description of the cult's Greek origins and low moral character—not even Bacchus is exempt from this judgment—may have sought to justify its suppression as a sudden "infiltration of too many Greek elements into Roman worship". The cult had, however, been active in Rome for many years before its supposedly abrupt discovery, and Bacchic and Dionysiac cults had been part of life in Roman and allied, Greek-speaking Italy for many decades. Greek cults and Greek influences had been part of Rome's religious life since the 5th century BC, and Rome's acquisition of foreign cults—Greek or otherwise—through the alliance, treaty, capture or conquest was a cornerstone of its foreign policy, and an essential feature of its eventual hegemony. While the pace of such introductions had gathered rapidly during the 3rd century, contemporary evidence of the Bacchanalia reform betrays no anti-Greek or anti-foreign policy or sentiment.

Gruen interprets the Senatus consultum as a piece of Realpolitik, a display of the Roman senate's authority to its Italian allies after the Second Punic War, and a reminder to any Roman politician, populist and would-be generalissimo that the Senate's collective authority trumped all personal ambition. Nevertheless, the extent and ferocity of the official response to the Bacchanalia was probably unprecedented, and betrays some form of moral panic on the part of Roman authorities; Burkert finds "nothing comparable in religious history before the persecutions of Christians.” Wikipedia

“ …. Paculla Annia was a Campanian priestess of Bacchus. She is known only through the Roman historian Livy's account of the introduction, growth and spread of unofficial Bacchanalia festivals, which were ferociously suppressed in 186 BC under threat of extreme penalty.

Paculla Annia is said to have presided over the corruption of Bacchus's mystery cult and its holy orgia, starting around 188. Livy describes the Bacchanalia as hitherto reserved to women, a daylight ritual held on just three days of the year; Paculla Annia changed them to nocturnal rites, increased their frequency to five a month, opened them to all social classes and both sexes - starting with her own sons, Minius and Herennius Cerrinius - and made wine-fueled violence and sexual promiscuity mandatory for all initiates. The cult was thought to function as a hidden state within the state, with particular appeal to those with leuitas animi (fickle or uneducated minds); the lower classes, plebeians, women, the young, morally weak, and "men most like women" were thought most susceptible but even men of the highest class were not immune.

A virtuous ex-initiate and prostitute, Hispala Faecenia, though fearing the vengeance of the cult, revealed all to a shocked Roman senate. Once their investigation was complete, they suppressed the cult, saving Rome from the divine wrath and disaster it would otherwise have suffered. Livy claims that six thousand were executed, and that the arrests included Paculla's son, Minius Cerrineus. The legislation against the cult, or rather its forced reformation, is given in the Senatus consultum de Bacchanalibus. Paculla's fate is unknown. … “ Wikipedia

Using her curtain, not to mention the cloak of darkness,
And the Summoenium’s brothel is only revealed by thin cracks.

Even the dirtiest of whores takes cover in a tomb.

George Lambor (1927 - 1997) was the Founder of the Antiquities Dealers Association and Agora Magazine
Sex and nature worship was popular in Ancient Greece with many shrines dedicated to the fertility of both humans and the soil. Linked to the worship of the gods Demeter and Dionysus, the deities responsible for the fruits of the harvest, the symbols of the cteis and phallus were used to bring fertility, good luck and to give magical protection against evil spirits. Priapus, the favourite god of women, the son of Dionysus, was the deity of fruitfulness and his image was found everywhere in Ancient Greece as a boundary marker, signpost, carved on a door lintel for protection, or in gardens in order to make the plants grow well.

The best specimens of Ancient Greek terracotta figures were found in tombs, but many came from the sites of temples and houses. It was a Greek practice to dedicate terracottas in temples and shrines and the guardians of these sacred places would periodically empty those under their charge of all the votive offerings which had accumulated there. Some of the metal objects would be melted down and reused to make basins for the temple service, but the terracotta figures and vases were thrown away. Terracottas depicting grotesque figures, caricatures, parodies, mimes, dwarfs and others were very popular in the Hellenistic period. A favourite was a dancing dwarf with a huge phallus, sometimes shown fighting his own monstrous member. This terracotta is the female counterpart displaying her vagina or ‘cteis’. … “ THE BRITISH ANTIQUE DEALERS' ASSOCIATION

“ … An Egyptian Terracotta Head of a Grotesque

This is a wonderfully modelled Egyptian head, made of natural buff brown clay, depicting a male with grotesque and exaggerated features. Heads like this, and also complete figurines, were produced in late Hellenistic times, especially in Alexandria. The artisans, fascinated with realism, started to reproduce scenes and figures from daily life. Many figurines exist of children as well as old people, with a certain emphasis on ill and deformed persons. Some have caricature features; these are usually referred to as grotesques. It has been suggested that they were influenced by the exaggerated features of theatrical masks.
The bulging forehead of our head, which has an enlarged cranium, is furrowed and the knitted brow is thickened. The heavy eyebrows, frowning angrily, and the piercing eyes are rendered in sharp relief, as is the long, thin nose with its nostrils. The lips are slightly parted and especially the thick, pendulous lower lip lends the face an unpleasant, almost aggressive expression. The clearly defined bone structure is shown in an masterly manner under the realistically rendered facial muscles and the sagging skin. As Török has remarked, the knitted brow and the shape of the mouth are features which associate the type with the world of the lower social strata represented with express malice in Hellenistic terracottas.

- In Greece, the priest of Artemis was castrated, and her statues were covered in large bull testicles ! - Artemis was a female bull phallus cult for sure...


“ … Bubastis was a center of worship for the feline goddess Bastet, sometimes called Bubastis after the city, who the Greeks identified with Artemis. The cat was the sacred and peculiar animal of Bast, who is represented with the head of a cat or a lioness and frequently accompanies the deity Ptah in monumental inscriptions. The tombs at Bubastis were accordingly the principal depository in Egypt of the mummies of the cat.

The most distinguished features of the city and nome of Bubastis were its oracle of Bast, the splendid temple of that goddess and the annual procession in honor of her. The oracle gained in popularity and importance after the influx of Greek settlers into the Delta, since the identification of Bast with Artemis attracted to her shrine both native Egyptians and foreigners.

The festival of Bubastis was considered the most joyous and gorgeous of all in the Egyptian calendar as described by Herodotus:

Barges and river craft of every description, filled with men and women, floated leisurely down the Nile. The men played on pipes of lotus. the women on cymbals and tambourines, and such as had no instruments accompanied the music with clapping of hands and dances, and other joyous gestures. Thus did they while on the river: but when they came to a town on its banks, the barges were made fast, and the pilgrims disembarked, and the women sang, playfully mocked the women of that town and threw their clothes over their head. When they reached Bubastis, then held they a wondrously solemn feast: and more wine of the grape was drank in those days than in all the rest of the year. Such was the manner of this festival: and, it is said, that as many as seven hundred thousand pilgrims have been known to celebrate the Feast of Bast at the same time. …. “ Wikipedia

Shaved vulva - so married sexually free woman - In this case Roman Egyptian matron -


“ … Ritual jesting and intimate exposure were common in the cults of Demeter and Dionysus, and figure in the celebration of the Eleusinian mysteries associated with these divinities. The mythographer Apollodorus says that Iambe's jesting was the reason for the practice of ritual jesting at the Thesmophoria, a festival celebrated in honor of Demeter and Persephone. In other versions of the myth of Demeter, the goddess is received by a woman named Baubo, a crone who makes her laugh by exposing herself, in a ritual gesture called anasyrma ("lifting [of skirts]"). A set of statuettes from Priene, a Greek city on the west coast of Asia Minor, are usually identified as "Baubo" figurines, representing the female body as the face conflated with the lower part of the abdomen. These appeared as counterparts to the phalluses decorated with eyes, mouth, and sometimes legs, that appeared on vase paintings and were made as statuettes.

Terracotta hermaphrodite figurines in the so-called anasyromenos pose, with breasts and a long garment lifted to reveal a phallus, have been found from Sicily to Lesbos, dating back to the late Classical and early Hellenistic period. The anasyromenos pose, however, was not invented in the 4th century BCE, figures of this type drew on a much earlier eastern iconographic tradition employed for female divinities. Ancient literature suggests that the figures represent the androgynous Cypriot deity Aphroditus (possibly a form of Astarte), whose cult was introduced into mainland Greece between the 5th–4th century BCE. The revealed phallus was believed to have apotropaic magical powers, averting the evil eye or invidia and bestowing good luck. … “ Wikipedia

My guess is that happened after marriage signaling female sexual freedom

Below is an paper that discusses this act of vulva shaving …But does not percieve this as an act of female sexual emancipation.

For Aristotle female sexuality was wet and boundless - as opposed to male sexuality that was dry and bounded - That’s an indirect mention by Aristotle of the penis cage and female sexual rampages!

“ …. Female, fetish, and urban form are mutually fashioned in Aristophanes’ comedy Ecclesiazusae, in which the women of Athens, under the leadership of their new στρατηγ?ς “general” Praxagora, disguise themselves as men in order to infiltrate the ?κκλησ?α, the male-only “legislative assembly,” where they vote in a new order, one that abolishes the institutions of phallocracy—private property, individual father-ruled households, law courts—and institutes instead, a communistic gynocracy. By this new regime, the women successfully mount a rebellion against the Classical architecture of the house and city. Through their revolution, the play poses the question: What form of city will a woman build, if left to her own devices? To this question, the play answers: If a female designs urban form, she will show phallocracy to be architectural, subject to construction and deconstruction—the phallus subject to cutting, the fundamental architectural act, the detail that joins. She will expose the “reign of the phallus” as the rule of the fetish. ….

Depilation as Female “Auto-Architecture”

In requiring women to depilate their genital hair, the architecture of father-rule reaches into the female body’s “unspeakable recesses” … as Praxagora puts it in her prologue (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae ), using the term μυχ?ς that refers to the innermost part of a landscape or
a house. At the site of these “unspeakable recesses” is the female’s pubic hair. Here is the sight and the site that provokes the Freudian fetish, the pseudo-phallic prosthesis that supplements or the cutting that worships by mutilating the female genital, simultaneously denying and affirming her castration, her “sameness” with men. It is here that the woman’s architectural power is born. For it is on the model of the matted pubic hair that covers her lack of a penis that the female invented weaving, according to Freud, and it is weaving, according to Semper, that is the origin of architecture as vertical space enclosure, and it is cutting, we may add, together with weaving, that constitutes the primary architectural mechanism, the “detail.”

In the detail of pubic depilation, the twin strategies of the fetish and the father-ruled house coincide. Each has the same mission: to form the female by cutting her sexuality—her manifest sexual difference—short. Without such “cosmetic surgery,” female sexuality knows no natural bounds. For in the oppositional categories of Greek thought, the male is dry and limited and the female is unlimited and wet, the two categories being closely connected architecturally. As Aristotle puts it:
The wet is that which is not bounded (? + ?ριστον, compare “horizon”) by any boundary of its own (ο?κε?? ?ρ?) while being easily bounded (ε? + ?ριστον) and the dry is that which is easily bounded (τ? ε??ριστον) by its own boundary (ο?κε?? ?ρ?), but with difficulty bounded (δυσ + ?ριστον).
Aristotle On Coming-to-Be and Passing Away 

Because the female’s wetness—the sign, like the male’s erection, of her sexual capacity—knows no intrinsic limit, it must be bound by a formative force outside itself, the institution of father-ruled marriage and its material embodiment in the ο?κος “house.” The trimming of her pubic hair signals the woman’s willingness to draw this horizon, to conform herself to Classical κ?σμος “order.” As she devotes her architectural mêtis to weaving the walls that mold the ο?κος “house” and the clothes that veil her body, so the woman trims her genital hair into a particular schema—for example, the delta, one of the two types of triangles described by Plato in the Timaeus as the elementary geometrical forms of the cosmos itself.

At every level of her architectural formation, the female is imbued with a single ideal: to devote her mêtis exclusively to making herself—her mind, her body, and her house—a parodic imitation of male design and desire. Her architectural imperative is thus to fetishize herself—to make herself a quasi-phallic construction and a depilated deconstruction. Ironically, but perhaps inevitably, this very indoctrination programs the methods and forms of the architectural rebellion staged in the Ecclesiazusae. Both in her plot to take over the government and in her new urban form, Praxagora combines two basic architectural operations, sectional inversion and extension in plan, that for all their revolutionary ingenuity are, nevertheless, applications of her in-house training to emulate the male’s design. Sectionally, she maintains the traditional structure of hierarchy, but inverts gender, putting the woman on top, where, true to the self-fetishizing imperative, she can “play the man.” In plan, Praxagora extends the household horizontally, turning the π?λις “city” into one big ο?κος “house,” where women will continue to perform their parodically male role.

In Praxagora’s urban form the female innovates, in effect, by archaizing—by applying just what is traditionally taken to be her founding architectural capacity. For the mechanism common to both her sectional inversion and her horizontal extension is the tropic character of mêtis itself. In its basic constitution as “the circular reciprocity of what is bound and what is binding,” mêtis characterizes those conditions that turn around on themselves, procedures that retreat by advancing, and advance via retreat. In the world of humans and animals, creatures of mêtis imitate their enemies to beat them at their own game. As a mistress of mêtis the female will win not by countering, but by extending her construction by the Classical ο?κος “house” to the point where it, like a drug, recoils upon its practitioner. Such is the insight of a domestic parallel for the technique of Praxagora’s urban revolution, one found among the texts of the Athenian law court. So before turning to the details of Praxagora’s plot and plan, let us again depart briefly from the play itself to pursue this precedent. … “

Headless Baubo who speaks through her vulva ...


In the play discussed above, the women have a revolution and begin Amazon sex - which the men do not enjoy because they have to have sex all the time and with ravenous women their mothers age. But Baubo suddenly appears and turns coitus into eros …

My guess is this play was revealing the true Amazon ruled state of penis locked Greek sex!


“ …. Female Urban Form as Phallic Loss

In its penultimate scene, the play displays the impact of Praxagora’s law upon the body of a young man. Here the female is still assimilated, like Pandora, to the man-made containers of ceramic jar and house, but with her openings now free of phallic regulation. In dramatizing what the young man suffers from this unfettered vagina, the scene becomes, in effect, a defense of the fetish and a demand for its return. For the loss of phallic power breeds fear of incest not only in the young man, but also in the woman who fears she might be his mother. Attempting to avail herself of the new sexual order, an ugly old hag competes with a beautiful young girl for the young man’s sexual service, each woman stationing herself in an orifice of the house, one at the window and the other at the door, to hurl abuse at the other (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 877–889). The young man, Epigenes, too, insults the hag. Loaded down, as she is, with white lead and rouge on her face, he likens her to a certain type of ceramic jar, the lêkuthos, a one-handled jug with narrow neck and deep mouth used for athlete’s oil, unguents, makeup, and as an offering for the dead. He charges that her lover is that master pot-painter, Death himself, who makes such a lêkuthos of and for us all.

Epigenes: But, dear lady, I’m concerned about your lover.
Hag: Who is that?
Epigenes: The best of painters.
Hag: And who is that?
Epigenes: He who paints lêkuthoi for corpses. So go away, lest he see you at the door.
Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 994–997

These insults alone do not dissuade the hag. But when threatened with the flip-side of eliminating father-ruled marriage-exchange, namely, the violation of the incest-taboo—as if all these hyphenated terms were somehow essential to her safety—the hag turns and runs. As she is about to drag the young man across her threshold, thus inverting the roles of regular marriage, she is put to flight, when the young girl warns: “You would be more like a mother to him than a wife. If you establish this law, you will fill the whole earth with Oedipuses!” (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1040–1042).

The hag’s reaction might seem anomalous. Why does she care whether or not the young man is her son? While her plan provided for an inter-generational father-son recognition in order to prevent patricide, Praxagora’s conversation with Blepyrus produced no comparable questioning of how to avoid incest. To some commentators, this silence indicates that Praxagora is not concerned with preventing mothers’ recognition of their children. Another conclusion is that Aristophanes has left a loop-hole in Praxagora’s plan—one which he now exploits. By leaving this gap in the overt defense of her plan—namely, the failure to address the problem of preventing incest—Aristophanes leaves Praxagora’s law vulnerable to this apparent internal contradiction. If erotic equality requires that the young have sex with the old before the young, and if “father” and “mother” now designate the whole of an older generation, how can the system avert the threat of incest? If the system, as Aristophanes has permitted Praxagora to formulate it, is to achieve wholly communistic eros, its rationale must penetrate—as was the goal of the husband in the Oeconomicus—the body and the mind, there to eradicate fear of incestuous sex. But when the hag is confronted with the possibility of mother-son union, fear overrides the new sexual right. Ironically recalling Jocasta, who retreats into the house at the realization of her incest, the hag runs into the house, figurally re-submitting herself to its sexual law. But no sooner is this hag expelled than she proliferates—another arrives, one uglier than the first, and then a third arrives, the ugliest of all.

Caught in a physical tug-of-war between these two new hags, each trying to drag him into the door of her house, Epigenes must now submit to sex with a woman who might be his mother. His vision of the union contains every dimension of castration anxiety, every fear that motivates the creation of the fetish. He bewails his fate in and as a synesthesia of intercourse, castration, and death, and he caps it with a chimera of compensatory revenge:

O three-times damned, if I must screw a
putrid woman the whole night and day, and then,
whenever I escape from this one, again have to screw
a toad (φρ?νην) who has a funeral lêkuthos on her jaws.
Am I not damned? Indeed, I am deeply damned,
by Zeus the savior, a man indeed ill-fated,
who will be shut up inside with such wild beasts.
But still, if—as is very likely—I suffer something,
as I sail hither into the harbor under these whores as pilots,
bury me upon the mouth itself of the entrance,
and this woman above, on top of the tomb (σ?ματος),
tar her down alive, then pour lead
on her feet in a circle around her ankles,
and put her on top above me as a substitute (πρ?φασιν) for
a lêkuthos.
Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1098–1111

In this phantasmagorical vision, entities bear multiple, simultaneous meanings. Intercourse with the female-as-ceramic-embodiment-of-death means imprisonment in her body-as-a-house and being devoured there by the “wild beasts” of her castrating vagina dentata. This diabolical confinement of the man inverts Zeus’ swallowing of Metis and the household’s containment of the wife. And just as the wife before tried to emulate a “ship-shape” κ?σμος “order,” so the female is now the pilot of the male, himself a ship, sailing into the harbor of her voracious genital mouth, upon which he will be buried—but not without his revenge. For in his final words, Epigenes envisions a return of the female fetish—that “monument” (Denkmal), in Freud’s terms, “to the horror of castration” feared as punishment for incest—and with the fetish, a return of the “phallus” as architectural support. Tarred alive and welded to his tomb by her feet, those perennial objects of the fetishist’s sadistic adoration, female mêtis stands now wholly immobilized, a reduction of the constricting drive of the ο?κος “house” to its ultimate logical absurdity. The female as ceramic Pandora is now the parodic lêkuthos, a pseudo-phallic memorial upon the grave of male glory.

Female Urban Form as Baubo

And then suddenly, as if this fantasy of violent Oedipal transgression had never occurred, the play turns into a “festive conclusion,” comedy’s normative end. We, its audience—especially its judges—are invited to see in Praxagora’s new regime what Demeter saw when Baubo lifted her skirts.

When her daughter Persephone is raped by Death, Demeter, goddess of marriage, childbirth, and chthonic fertility, suspends her powers and wanders the now sterile earth disguised as an old woman. Arriving at Eleusis, she is received by the queen, Baubo, who offers her food and drink. When the mourning goddess refuses this traditional hospitality, Baubo responds by lifting her skirts and exposing her naked genitals. At this sight, the goddess laughs. She eats and drinks, and with her resumption of human social exchange, the fertility of women and the earth returns.

In its final scene, the Ecclesiazusae aims at the tropic power of Baubo’s display. Rather than a system of sterile intercourse with women too old to bear children, rather than requiring a young man’s rape, it offers Praxagora’s city as a source of sexual luxury and gargantuan nourishment for all. It hopes to turn horror into happiness and fear into laughter, thereby to win the comic prize. On the heels of Epigenes’ sexual damnation, a maidservant enters proclaiming this compound benediction:

O blessed is the people, and happy am I myself,
and my mistress herself is most blessed,
and all of you women, as many as stand beside here upon the doors,
and all our neighbors and all the fellow-demesmen,
and I, in addition to these, the maidservant.
Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1112–1116

The source of her bliss is a profusion of “good perfumes” on her head?–?perfume being a powerful tool of sexual attraction, and of Thasian wine, whose effect within her head lasts a whole night long (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1116.

She has come not just to extol her pleasure, however, but rather to share it, as she asks the chorus where her master, that is, the husband of her mistress, is. Here he comes on his way to dinner, answers the chorus leader, as a man enters with a couple of με?ρακας “young girls.” Whether or not he is to be identified as Blepyrus, the new “first husband,” he is “blessed and three-times happy,” being assured of sexual pleasure in the persons of the “chicks” on his arm and of a sumptuous feast. For his wife has sent the maidservant to bring him and his girlfriends to dinner, where, although he is the last of the 30,000 male citizens, there is still Chian wine and other “good things” left for him (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1125–1140).

Indeed, in Praxagora’s grand provision of sex and food, there is enough left for all men, as the invitation to dinner expands to dissolve the “fourth wall” and solicit the audience’s favor. Turning from her master to the audience, the maidservant says:

And of the spectators, if anyone happens to be well-disposed,
and of the judges, if anyone is not looking in the other direction,
come with us. For we will provide all things.
Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1141–1143

In return for your approbation, you may cross the theatrical threshold and come with us to the feast. But then, urges her master, why not “speak nobly” and “freely invite the old man, the young man, and the boy?” For such is the extent of the gynocratic largess that “there is a dinner prepared for each and every one of them, too, if they return home” (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1144–1148)—not a disinterested offer, of course, since the Ecclesiazusae is the first play in the day’s competition and departure at this point would mean missing the others (Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1158–1159).

Rather, the point of the extended invitation is that Praxagora’s new city transcends the space of the theater to encompass the totality of households in Athens itself. All citizens may share its wealth of unlimited pleasure, if only they, like this morning’s Assembly, vote for it. For, as the maidservant and her master then leave for dinner, the chorus-leader appeals to the judges:

to those who are clever, remember the clever things and vote for me;
to those who laugh with pleasure, on account of laughter, vote for me:
virtually all men, therefore, I clearly order to vote for me.
Aristophanes Ecclesiazusae 1155–1157

Does the manifold σοφ?α of Praxagora’s plot and plan resonate with your own? When you gaze at her urban form, do you see Baubo and laugh?

In case you hesitate—in case your hunger is not quite strong enough to scotomize what Epigenes sees in the unadorned female genital—Aristophanes ends the Ecclesiazusae with the promise of an irresistibly huge piece of food, named in “the longest word ever known to have been created in the Greek language, comprising (subject to textual uncertainties) 170 letters and 79 ?syllables, and describing a gargantuan dish consisting mainly of fish (1169–1170) and birds (1172–1174), plus hare (1174), well sauced and seasoned (1170–1171, 1174).”

 Who could resist this gigantic offering? Who, now, could withhold his vote? With this sign of the city’s new power to satisfy human hunger, no matter how immense, Aristophanes would seem to have brought us all to the point of ratifying his creation of female urban form. Here, it seems, he brings the turns and returns of comic mêtis finally to a close.

But maybe here it is the goddess Metis herself who has the final word. Maybe the tropology of mêtis exceeds the mastery even of him who created this play’s ingenious play. For if we vote in favor of Praxagora’s gynocratic communism, we have not escaped the effects of the Freudian fetish. If we see ourselves as one of the men treated by the new system to endless sex and food, we have not excluded from our society the young man who sees the unadorned female genital as the site of castration. If we take his fears for fantasy, if we assure ourselves that within the walls of the Hag’s “house,” he will find nothing ultimately more lethal than intercourse—if we, indeed, find ourselves laughing a bit at the groundlessness of his panic and more than a bit indignant at the extremity of his hoped-for revenge, we have not thereby excluded from our society all that continues to result from the force of his fear. … “

More headless terracota Baubo who speaks through her vulva - c.a. 400 BC

Seems to me Baubo was central part of the Greek "Miracle" or the classical age - Baubo and the rites of Demeter - You can see a similar revoution in Rome with the underground Dionysus movement around 180 BC ...

The original stimulus for me were the Dionysus sarcophagi - but the meaning of those elaborate coffins is still not clear - but my guess is something like the rites of Demeter was involved - Dionysus descended to Hades to retrieve his mother Semele … In the Dionysus case, payment for guidance to the underworld was passive anal sex under a fig wood dildo …

Fig dildo means female phallus as a male would not need a dildo … And I do not think that was forced on anyone … Nymph and dildo is missing in the modern day world, but that category clearly existed in the classical world …

The upper class Greco-Roman world had a communistic system! It kind of reminds me of what white people have in America - and even more in Africa - ! That's a "Valhalla" ideal that is not easily given up ...


But that "Valhalla" ideal was originally black African - Dionysus means the god of Nysa, where Dionysus was raised - and his mother Semele was probably an Egyptian from Thebes:

“ … Semele, also called Thyone, in Greek mythology, a daughter of Cadmus and Harmonia, at Thebes, and mother of Dionysus (Bacchus) by Zeus. Semele’s liaison with Zeus enraged Zeus’s wife, Hera, who, disguised as an old nurse, coaxed Semele into asking Zeus to visit her in the same splendour in which he would appear before Hera. Zeus had already promised to grant Semele her every wish and thus was forced to grant a wish that would kill her: the splendour of his firebolts, as god of thunder, destroyed Semele. Zeus saved their unborn child, Dionysus, from the womb and kept him in his thigh until the baby was ready to be born. The story that Dionysus, himself immortal, descended into Hades after reaching maturity and brought Semele back, and she too became an immortal or even a goddess is found on an Attic black-figure hydria from the Leagros Group (c. 520 BC) and in Pindar’s Olympian ode 2. … “ Britannica

Theban sex: boss lady over caged slave

Martial calls the mother of Dionysus Semele a man - She was from Thebes - where they were practicing Bubastis sex - Women as the phallic cat god Bast or Sekhmet and men as the caged Ptah!

The rites of Dionysus were to retrieve Semele from Hades and Theban sex with a fig dildo was involved as payment for guidance to and from the underworld …

I think the plot line of Aristophane's Assemblywomen or Ecclesiazusae is a Theban fantasy - although the ending features Baubo .. who was from the rites of Demeter


Penis caging was happening even without woman rule - The females in male clothes that sneak into the Assembly room are noticed as being "pale" - My guess is most sex was dildo in the rear even before the communist takeover ...

In the new regime brothels were forbidden and men had to have sex with women who demanded it ... even old hags - My guess is that's what happened at the yearly wine soaked Egyptian orgies of Bastet ...Where women were expected to show off their vulvas in public ...

Maybe that's why we do not read of Egyptian brothels - but instead read that Cleopatra "gaped" 10,000 men ... Cleopatra was the archtype of Bastet or even Sekhmet the more fierce version of that goddess

The shaved vulva was a sign in ancient Egypt of marriage and sexual freedom ... And with it the bull dildo and the universal penis caged sexually passive Egyptian male who was sexed communally by eligible ie women ...


“ … The Ecclesiazusae (aka Assemblywomen) is a comedy play written by Aristophanes, one of the great Greek comic playwrights. Written sometime between 393 and 391 BCE, it is, along with his play Wealth, one of only two he wrote after the Athenian defeat in the Peloponnesian War. In 403 BCE a new democratic government was reestablished in Athens; however, continued conflicts with Sparta had drawn heavily on both the finances of the city and its manpower. The future of the city remained in question. In the Ecclesiazusae Aristophanes proposed a unique solution: turn the running of the government over to the women of the city. As in his play Lysistrata, the central character of the play is a strong-willed woman - Praxagora. Together with other wives, who are disguised as men, she presents her ideas at the Assembly of Athens and convinces the men to relinquish control of the government. As the newly appointed commander, Praxagora quickly enacts a series of radical changes: community property, communal dwellings and meals, and no brothels. Reluctantly, many of the men quickly adapt to the new order of things. Of course, the possibility that women might rule in a city where they could not normally even vote and Aristophanes' use of that notion for comedy is indicative of just how male-dominated the society of ancient Athens was. ….

Play Summary
Outside her home in Athens, Praxagora waits anxiously for her female friends to arrive. She carries her husband's cloak and walking stick along with a fake beard. It is an opening scene similar to Aristophanes' Lysistrata. Shortly, the other women arrive - all carrying the same items. It is early morning and Praxagora chastises the women for being late: they have to be at the Assembly in order to be seated near the front. Praxagora quickly rehearses the speech she plans to make. The women, dressed as men, arrive at the Assembly and seat themselves as planned. Although some of the men remark how these strangers are somewhat pale, the women go largely unnoticed.

The scene switches to Praxagora's house where her husband Blepyrus exits his home wearing his wife's robe and slippers. He wonders where his wife is and what has happened to his cloak and walking stick. His friend and neighbor Chremes appears and tells him of the happenings at the Assembly. The major topic of the day was what could be done to save the city. Although unrecognized by Chremes, Praxagora (dressed as a man) had addressed the men and convinced them to hand the reins of government over to the women. Since it was the only thing that had not been tried - and since the women were (in the words of Praxagora) harder workers – the men had little choice but to agree. Serving as the city's new commander, Praxagora suggested several radical ideas: equal pay for men and women, no more lawsuits, common living areas, and the courthouse and porticos would become common dining halls. Since individual ownership would be non-existent, there would be no private wealth. Instead, there would be a common stock of necessities for everybody. Slavery still existed but there was common ownership; the slaves still performed all the necessary work.

Although there was some resistance, the men soon adapted to the new laws and even brothels were outlawed. Although some rules were enacted, men and women could sleep with whomever they wished: In the closing scene of the play three elderly hags argue over a much younger man. …. “ by Donald L. Wasson, worldhistory.

Garden of Priapus - 1414

More Theban sex: boss lady over caged slave


“ … The play begins in the early morning hours on a quiet street in Athens. Praxagora exits her home carrying her husband's cloak, shoes, walking stick, and a fake beard. She is obviously troubled. The Assembly will be meeting soon, but her friends have yet to arrive. “It'll be time for the Assembly and those of us who are in on the plot…have yet to get to our seats and settle our limbs without being spotted” . Soon, several other ladies arrive. They all have excuses for their tardiness. “I was just putting my shoes on when I heard you scratching at the door. I haven't slept a wink” .

Praxagora's major concern is that they all get seats near the platform facing the praesidium.

If we get to our seats first we can settle down and no one will notice us; we'll have our cloaks well-wrapped round us, and when we are sitting there, with our beards tied on, there'll be nothing to show we're not men.

They began to practice their individual speeches, but they are all hopeless. Praxagora realizes that she will have to do all the speaking. She practices her speech:

Gentlemen, my interest in the welfare of this state is no less than yours; but I deeply deplore the way in which its affairs are being handled. The task of speaking for the people is invariably entrusted to crooks and rascals. For every one day they spend doing good they spend another ten doing irreparable harm...the state is left to stagger on as best it can, like Aesimus on his way home from a party. But if you will only listen to me, the situation is saved. I propose that we hand over the running of Athens to the women. (228-9)
The women are elated and suggest that if the proposal is accepted Praxagora will be named the “Generalissimo.”
Together they head for the Assembly.

The scene changes to Praxagora's husband Blepyrus standing outside their home. He is wearing his wife's slippers and gown. He tells a neighbor that he cannot find his cloak and shoes anywhere. And, he also cannot find his wife: “I'd very much like to know what mischief she's up to” . A friend, Chremes, arrives and immediately makes a comment on the poor husband's gown and slippers.
Changing the subject, he has been to the Assembly that day, and though he arrived too late and would not get paid, he stayed, for it was the day to hear proposals on how to save the city. He told how several men had stood up and given their ideas. Then a good-looking young man rose and gave a speech, saying that they should hand over control of affairs to the women: “… women, he says are creatures bursting with intelligence and darned good at making money, And they don't let out what happens at their secret festivals, the way you and I, when we're on the Council, leak state secrets right and left” . Blepyrus agreed and asked about the final vote. The Assembly decided it was going to hand over control of the city to the women. The general feeling was that it was the only thing that hadn't been tried -“They might as well try it”. Blepyrus, unaware that it was his wife who had made the proposal, questioned the decision: the women will have all the jobs that men usually do? The women will have to sit on the juries? He can stay at home and relax? Chremes commented that if it benefits Athens then it is every man's patriotic duty. Praxagora arrives home to her unsuspecting husband. He wonders if she has a lover and asks why she took his cloak and walking stick.

More than with her being gone, he was mad because he could not go to the Assembly. She plays ignorant - did the Assembly meet? He tells her of the decision at the Assembly - they are going to hand over everything to the women. She replies “by Aphrodite” that it is a great day for Athens, a splendid piece of news: “This'll put a stop to all the mischief and skullduggery! No more faked evidence, no more informing!” . They will be no more mugging in the streets, no envy of a neighbor, no more poverty and no more slander. Chremes adds that if it all comes true then it sounds good to him. To Chremes and the chorus she speaks of her proposals: there will be one stock of essentials for everybody - everybody sharing equally; all money and private possessions will become common property. Everything will be owned in common. Marriages will be ended - one can sleep with whomever he or she wishes. The brothels will be closed. And, lastly, there won't be any court cases for no one will be stealing: “Everyone will have the necessities of life” . The law courts and arcades will be converted into dining halls.” The city will become “one communal residence.”

The scene changes to Chremes' home where he is removing various items to hand over to the state, according to the new law. A citizen questions Chremes' compliance and adds that he refuses to comply. “I shall take jolly good care not to hand it in until I see that other people decide to do” . To him, it was not the Athenian way - “grabbing not giving.” A crier appears and tells them that they are to present themselves before “Her Excellency the General” to draw lots to see where they will dine that day. The citizen, who refused to give up his property, still plans to dine at the communal table, “and I must find some way of keeping what I've got without losing my share of all this public feasting” .

Elsewhere in the city, two old hags are wondering when the men will arrive. A beautiful young girl argues with the first old hag; they disappear into their home. A young man appears - he wonders how he can sleep with the young girl without sleeping with one of the old hags. However, he is told, according to the law that he must sleep with one of them. As they continue to argue a third hag appears, and they drag the poor young man into their house. Across town the public feast is almost over - Praxagora is happy. Her husband is cheerfully on his way to the banquet accompanied by a number of young dancing girls.

The long war with Sparta was finally over and Athens was attempting to recover. For Aristophanes his personal struggle with the war and the politicians who favored it should have brought him some long deserved peace. However, a new question emerged: how could the city be saved? The Ecclesiazusae was one of the playwright's last comedies, and in it, he attempts to present a unique solution to Athens' problem: turn the control of the government over to the women. It was the one alternative that had not been tried but, of course, the play is a comedy and it is important to note that the very idea of women ruling was fantastic to the male-dominated world of the ancient Greeks. Nevertheless, some of Praxagora's proposals - communal dwellings and meals - are similar to those found in Plato's The Republic. However, many scholars dismiss this as mere coincidence because Plato's work had not been in wide circulation at the time of the play's writing. By the play's end the city seemed to have accepted the radical changes. The final scene has Praxagora's husband headed to the banquet accompanied by a bevy of dancing girls. … “ by Donald L.

“ … In ancient Rome, a grove  … near Ostia, situated between the Aventine Hill and the mouth of the Tiber River, was dedicated to a goddess named Stimula. W.H. Roscher includes the name Stimula among the indigitamenta, the lists of Roman deities maintained by priests to assure that the correct divinity was invoked in public rituals. In his poem on the Roman calendar, Ovid (d. 17 CE) identifies this goddess with Semele:

"There was a grove: known either as Semele’s or Stimula’s: Inhabited, they say, by Italian Maenads. Ino, asking them their nation, learned they were Arcadians,
And that Evander was the king of the place. Hiding her divinity, Saturn’s daughter cleverly Incited the Latian Bacchae with deceiving words:"

Augustine notes that the goddess is named after stimulae, 'goads, whips,' by means of which a person is driven to excessive actions. The goddess's grove was the site of the Dionysian scandal  that led to official attempts to suppress the cult. The Romans viewed the Bacchanals with suspicion, based on reports of ecstatic behaviors contrary to Roman social norms and the secrecy of initiatory rite. In 186 BC, the Roman senate took severe actions to limit the cult, without banning it. Religious beliefs and myths associated with Dionysus were successfully adapted and remained pervasive in Roman culture, as evidenced for instance by the Dionysian scenes of Roman wall painting and on sarcophagi from the 1st to the 4th centuries AD.

The Greek cult of Dionysus had flourished among the Etruscans in the archaic period, and had been made compatible with Etruscan religious beliefs. One of the main principles of the Dionysian mysteries that spread to Latium and Rome was the concept of rebirth, to which the complex myths surrounding the god's own birth were central. Birth and childhood deities were important to Roman religion; Ovid identifies Semele's sister Ino as the nurturing goddess Mater Matuta. This goddess had a major cult center at Satricum that was built 500–490 BC.

The female consort who appears with Bacchus in the acroterial statues there may be either Semele or Ariadne. The pair were part of the Aventine Triad in Rome as Liber and Libera, along with Ceres. The temple of the triad is located near the Grove of Stimula, and the grove and its shrine (sacrarium) were located outside Rome's sacred boundary (pomerium), perhaps as the "dark side" of the Aventine Triad. … “ Wikipedia

Each has the same mission: to form the female by cutting her sexuality—her manifest sexual difference—short. Without such “cosmetic surgery,” female sexuality knows no natural bounds. For in the oppositional categories of Greek thought, the male is dry and limited and the female is unlimited and wet, the two categories being closely connected architecturally. As Aristotle puts it:
The wet is that which is not bounded by any boundary of its own while being easily bounded and the dry is that which is easily bounded by its own boundary, but with difficulty bounded .

Boss lady over a locked slave … Nymph and dildo

That’s the fear of the vulva - Castration ! Maybe its an unconscious memory of the Greco-Roman fibula or penis cage… But that memory should be the opposite though - the Fibula amped up Greco-Roman eros - both male and female ...


Freud had another theory for fear of castration:

“ … The castration complex is a concept developed by Sigmund Freud, first presented in 1908, initially as part of his theorisation of the transition in early childhood development from the polymorphous perversity of infantile sexuality to the ‘infantile genital organisation’ which forms the basis for adult sexuality. The trauma induced by the child’s discovery of anatomical difference between the sexes (presence or absence of the penis) gives rise to the fantasy of female emasculation or castration.

According to Freud the early stages of the child’s psychosexual development are characterised by polymorphous perversity and a bisexual disposition, and are the same for both sexes. Up to and including the phallic stage of this development the penis and clitoris are the leading erogenous zones. Once the castration complex is initiated with the child’s discovery and puzzlement over the anatomical difference between the sexes (presence or absence of the penis), it makes the assumption that this difference is due to the female's penis having been cut off or mutilated. The libidinal equivalence of penis/clitoris, based on the recognition by the child of only one genital organ, gives way to the fantasy that females have been castrated. This entails a legacy of castration anxiety for the boy and penis envy for the girl. … “ Wikipedia

I think the scene from the Satyricon when the heros barge into the female temple of Dionysus full of women with large emblems of Priapus - or dildos - who punish men who trespass with those dildos was a summary of the Roman rites of Dionysus:

“ … As it suited our purpose to avoid the public streets, we strolled through the more unfrequented parts of the city, and just at dusk we met two women in stolas, in a lonely spot, and they were by no means homely. Walking softly, we followed them to a temple which they entered, and from which we could hear a curious humming, which resembled the sound of voices issuing from the depths of a cavern. Curiosity impelled us also to enter the temple. There we caught sight of many women, who resembled Bacchantes, each of whom brandished in her right hand an emblem of Priapus. We were not permitted to see more, for as their eyes fell upon us, they raised such a hubbub that the vault of the temple trembled. They attempted to lay hands upon us, but we ran back to our inn as fast as we could go. … “



Zeus was attracted to Semele by her action of sacrificing a bull - That’s a sexual image to me - Semele took the bulls phallic energy for herself in the Egyptian manner ...

“ … Semele was a princess of Thebes in Greek mythology, daughter of the hero Cadmus and Harmonia. She was the only mortal to become the parent of a god.

Zeus fell in love with Semele while watching her sacrifice a bull on his altar and visited her many times afterwards. When Semele became pregnant, Hera found out and jealous of her husband's affair, set out a plan to punish Semele. Hera appeared in a different form to Semele and they became friends; Semele later confided to the goddess about her affair with Zeus, but Hera made her doubt about it. So, Semele decided to ask Zeus to grant her a wish, and he took an oath on the river Styx that he would give her anything. She asked that he appear to her in all his glory; Zeus was forced to comply. However, mortals could not look upon Zeus without bursting into flames, which is what happened to Semele. Zeus managed to save the unborn baby by sewing it inside his thigh; a few months later, god Dionysus was born, who managed to save his mother from the Underworld and brought her to Mount Olympus, where she became the goddess Thyone. … “ greekmythology

Dionysus raised his mother Semele up from Hades by sharing his fire with her - And a fig dildo was involved - or female phallus as payment for safe entry and exit from the underworld ...

Pausanias, Description of Greece 2. 37. 6 :

“”… The Alkyonian (Alcyonian) Lake [near Nemea, Argos], through which the Argives say Dionysos went down to Haides to bring up Semele, adding that the descent here was shown him by Polymnos."
Diodorus Siculus, Library of History 4. 25. 4 (trans. Oldfather) (Greek historian C1st B.C.) :

"The myths relate that Dionysos brought up his mother Semele from Hades, and that, sharing with her his own immortality, he changed her name to Thyone."
Pseudo-Hyginus, Fabulae 251 (trans. Grant) (Roman mythographer C2nd A.D.) :

"Those who, by permission of the Parcae [Moirai, Fates], returned from the lower world ... Father Liber [Dionysos]; he descended for Semele, his mother, daughter of Cadmus."

Pseudo-Hyginus, Astronomica 2. 5 :

"But those who wrote the Argolica give the following reason [why the constellation Crown was placed in the heavens]. When Liber [Dionysos] received permission from his father to bring back his mother Semele from the lower world, and in seeking a place of descent had come to the land of the Argives, a certain Hyplipnus met him, a man worthy of that generation, who was to show the entrance to Liber [Dionysos] in answer to his request . . .

So then, when Liber came to that place and was about to descend, he left the crown, which he had received as a gift from Venus [Aphrodite], at that place which in consequence is called Stephanos, for he was unwilling to take it with him for fear the immortal gift of the gods would be contaminated by contact with the dead. When he brought his mother back unharmed, he is said to have placed the crown in the stars as an everlasting memorial."

Seneca, Hercules Furens 16 (trans. Miller)

(Roman tragedy C1st A.D.) :
"Not alone has Bacchus [Dionysos] himself or the [Semele] mother of Bacchus attained the skies . . . [but also] the heavens wear the crown of the Cretan maid [Ariadne]."

Nonnus, Dionysiaca 7. 352 ff (trans. Rouse) (Greek epic C5th A.D.) :

"[Zeus addresses Semele :] ‘Europa glorified by Zeus' bed went to Krete (Crete), Semele goes to Olympos. What more do you want after heaven and the starry sky . . . you bring forth a son who shall not die and you I will call immortal. Happy woman! You have conceived a son who will make mortals forget their troubles,, you shall bring forth joy for gods and men.’"

Nonnus, Dionysiaca 8. 98 ff :
"I can see Semele and Bakkhos (Bacchus) [Dionysos] denizens of Olympos, and Ariadne's crown translated to the stars to run its course with Helios (the Sun)."

Nonnus, Dionysiaca 8. 402 ff :

"[Semele was consumed by the fire of Zeus' lightning-bolts :] Semele saw her fiery end, and perished rejoicing in a childbearing death [the baby Dionysos]. In one bridal chamber could be seen Himeros (Desire), Eileithyia, and the Erinyes (Furies) together. So the babe half-grown, and his limbs washed with heavenly fire, was carried by Hermes to his father for the lying-in.

Zeus was able to change the mind of jealous Hera, to clam and undo the savage threatening resentment which burdened her. Semele consumed by the fire he translated into the starry vault; he gave the mother of Bakkhos (Bacchus) a home in the sky among the heavenly inhabitants, as one of Hera's family, as daughter of Harmonia sprung from both Ares and Aphrodite.

So her new body bathed in the purifying fire . . ((lacuna)) she received the immortal life of the Olympians. Instead of Kadmos (Cadmus) and the soil of earth, instead of Autonoe and Agaue (Agave), she found Artemis by her side, she had converse with Athena, she received the heavens as her wedding-gift, sitting at one table with Zeus and Hermaon [Hermes] and Ares and Kythereia (Cytherea) [Aphrodite]." … “ Semele Throne, Theoi

The function of that dildo or emblem of Priapus is never clearly stated - but when you factor in the locked Greco-Roman phallus - the meaning seems clear to me ...


“ … In Greek mythology, maenads  were the female followers of Dionysus and the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Maenads were known as Bassarids, Bacchae , ... or Bacchantes  in Roman mythology after the penchant of the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus, to wear a bassaris or fox skin.

Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication. During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pine cone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honor of their god, and often handle or wear snakes.

These women were mythologized as the "mad women" who were nurses of Dionysus in Nysa. Lycurgus "chased the Nurses of the frenzied Dionysus through the holy hills of Nysa, and the sacred implements dropped to the ground from the hands of one and all, as the murderous Lycurgus struck them down with his ox-goad". They went into the mountains at night and practised strange rites.

According to Plutarch's Life of Alexander, maenads were called Mimallones and Klodones in Macedon, epithets derived from the feminine art of spinning wool. Nevertheless, these warlike parthenoi ("virgins") from the hills, associated with a Dionysios pseudanor "fake male Dionysus", routed an invading enemy. In southern Greece they were described as Bacchae, Bassarides, Thyiades, Potniades, and other epithets.

The term maenad has come to be associated with a wide variety of women, supernatural, mythological, and historical, associated with the god Dionysus and his worship.

In Euripides' play The Bacchae, maenads of Thebes murder King Pentheus after he bans the worship of Dionysus. Dionysus, Pentheus' cousin, himself lures Pentheus to the woods, where the maenads tear him apart. His corpse is mutilated by his own mother, Agave, who tears off his head, believing it to be that of a lion. A group of maenads also kill Orpheus, when he refuses to entertain them while mourning his dead wife.

In ceramic art, the frolicking of Maenads and Dionysus is often a theme depicted on kraters, used to mix water and wine. These scenes show the maenads in their frenzy running in the forests, often tearing to pieces any animal they happen to come across.

German philologist Walter Friedrich Otto writes:

The Bacchae of Euripides gives us the most vital picture of the wonderful circumstance in which, as Plato says in the Ion, the god-intoxicated celebrants draw milk and honey from the streams. They strike rocks with the thyrsus, and water gushes forth. They lower the thyrsus to the earth, and a spring of wine bubbles up. If they want milk, they scratch up the ground with their fingers and draw up the milky fluid. Honey trickles down from the thyrsus made of the wood of the ivy, they gird themselves with snakes and give suck to fawns and wolf cubs as if they were infants at the breast. Fire does not burn them. No weapon of iron can wound them, and the snakes harmlessly lick up the sweat from their heated cheeks. Fierce bulls fall to the ground, victims to numberless, tearing female hands, and sturdy trees are torn up by the roots with their combined efforts. … “ Wikipedia

The horse tail of the satyrs means “horse to ride” for me … The ecstatic rites of the Bacchantes have a missing female phallus or fire element - I think that’s what the Priapea was written to describe …

“ … Cultist rites associated with the worship of the Greek god of wine, Dionysus (or Bacchus in Roman mythology), were characterized by maniacal dancing to the sound of loud music and crashing cymbals, in which the revelers, called Bacchantes, whirled, screamed, became drunk and incited one another to greater and greater ecstasy. The goal was to achieve a state of enthusiasm in which the celebrants' souls were temporarily freed from their earthly bodies and were able to commune with Bacchus/Dionysus and gain a glimpse of and a preparation for what they would someday experience in eternity.

The rite climaxed in a performance of frenzied feats of strength and madness, such as uprooting trees, tearing a bull (the symbol of Dionysus) apart with their bare hands, an act called sparagmos, and eating its flesh raw, an act called omophagia.

This latter rite was a sacrament akin to communion in which the participants assumed the strength and character of the god by symbolically eating the raw flesh and drinking the blood of his symbolic incarnation. Having symbolically eaten his body and drunk his blood, the celebrants became possessed by Dionysus. … “ Wikipedia

Maenads are found in later references as priestesses of the Dionysian cult. In the third century BC, when an Asia Minor city wanted to create a maenadic cult of Dionysus, the Delphic Oracle bid them send to Thebes for both instruction and three professional maenads, stating, "Go to the holy plain of Thebes so that you may get maenads who are from the family of Ino, daughter of Cadmus. They will give to you both the rites and good practices and they will establish dance groups (thiasoi) of Bacchus in your city." … “ Wikipedia

“ … Myths
Dionysus came to his birthplace, Thebes, where neither Pentheus, his cousin who was now king, nor Pentheus' mother Agave, Dionysus' aunt (Semele's sister) acknowledged his divinity.

Dionysus punished Agave by driving her insane, and in that condition, she killed her son and tore him to pieces.

From Thebes, Dionysus went to Argos where all the women except the daughters of King Proetus joined in his worship. Dionysus punished them by driving them mad, and they killed the infants who were nursing at their breasts.

He did the same to the daughters of Minyas, King of Orchomenos in Boetia, and then turned them into bats.

According to Opian, Dionysus delighted, as a child, in tearing kids into pieces and bringing them back to life again. He is characterized as "the raging one" and "the mad one" and the nature of the maenads, from which they get their name, is, therefore, his nature.

Once during a war in the middle of the third century BC, the entranced Thyiades (maenads) lost their way and arrived in Amphissa, a city near Delphi. There they sank down exhausted in the market place and were overpowered by a deep sleep. The women of Amphissa formed a protective ring around them and when they awoke arranged for them to return home unmolested.… “ Wikipedia

Nymph and Dildo … Dionysus was raised by Nymphs after his mother died - They are probably the source of the Nymph and dildo image - My impression is women placed the penis cage on boys at the beginning of puberty - There are Egyptian "circumcision" scenes of young boys and women - but nowhere in Africa do women attend the circumcision of boys!

The Dionysus revolution made its way from Nysa to Thebes to Argos, Greece and into Rome - meeting resistance all the way but always winning in the end ... The plot line of Aristophanes "Assemblywomen" was probably an actual Amazon/communist revolution at the upper levels of the Greco-Roman world - The universal Roman penis cage strongly suggests that to me:

“ … Both in her plot to take over the government and in her new urban form, Praxagora combines two basic architectural operations, sectional inversion and extension in plan, that for all their revolutionary ingenuity are, nevertheless, applications of her in-house training to emulate the male’s design. Sectionally, she maintains the traditional structure of hierarchy, but inverts gender, putting the woman on top, where, true to the self-fetishizing imperative, she can “play the man.” In plan, Praxagora extends the household horizontally, turning the “city” into one big “house,” where women will continue to perform their parodically male role. …”

Bergren, Ann. 2008. Weaving Truth: Essays on Language and the Female in Greek Thought. Hellenic Studies Series 19. Washington, DC: Center for Hellenic Studies.


" ... Resisters to the new religion

The term "maenads" also refers to women in mythology who resisted the worship of Dionysus and were driven mad by him, forced against their will to participate in often horrific rites.

The doubting women of Thebes, the prototypical maenads or "mad women", left their homes to live in the wilds of the nearby mountain Cithaeron. When they discovered Pentheus spying on them, dressed as a maenad, they tore him limb from limb.

This also occurs with the three daughters of Minyas, who reject Dionysus and remain true to their household duties, becoming startled by invisible drums, flutes, cymbals, and seeing ivy hanging down from their looms.

As punishment for their resistance, they become madwomen, choosing the child of one of their number by lot and tearing it to pieces, as the women on the mountain did to young animals. A similar story with a tragic end is told of the daughters of Proetus. ... " Wikipedia

What martial call’s “a woman’s embrace”

“ … Voluntary revelers
Not all women were inclined to resist the call of Dionysus, however. Maenads, possessed by the spirit of Dionysus, traveled with him from Thrace to mainland Greece in his quest for the recognition of his divinity. Dionysus was said to have danced down from Parnassos accompanied by Delphic virgins, and it is known that even as young girls the women in Boeotia practiced not only the closed rites but also the bearing of the thyrsus and the dances.

A possible foundation myth is the ancient festival called Agrionia. According to Greek authors like Plutarch, female followers of Dionysios went in search of him and when they could not find him prepared a feast. As Plutarch records this festival, a priest would chase a group of virgins down with a sword. These women were supposed to be descendants of the women who sacrificed their son in the name of Dionysios. The priest would catch one of the woman and execute her. This human sacrifice was later omitted from the festival. Eventually the women would be freed from the intense ecstatic experience of the festival and return to their usual lives. The Agrionia was celebrated in several Greek cities, but especially in Boeotia. Each Boeotian city had its own distinct foundation myth for it, but the pattern was much the same: the arrival of Dionysus, resistance to him, flight of the women to a mountain, the killing of Dionysus' persecutor, and eventual reconciliation with the god. … “ Wikipedia

" wikipedia


“ … Haloa or Alo  was an Attic festival, celebrated principally at Eleusis, in honour of Demeter , protector of the fruits of the earth, of Dionysus, god of the grape and of wine, and Poseidon , god of the seashore vegetation. In Greek, the word halos from which Haloa derives means “threshing-floor” or “garden.” While the general consensus is that it was a festival related to threshing—the process of loosening the edible part of cereal grain after harvest—some scholars disagree and argue that it was instead a gardening festival. Haloa focuses mainly on the “first fruits” of the harvest, partly as a grateful acknowledgement for the benefits the husbandmen received, partly as prayer that the next harvest would be plentiful. The festival was also called Thalysia or Syncomesteria.

Haloa took place every year, during the month Poseideon , after the first harvest was over. The festival took place around the threshing floor at the same time throughout Attica. All women were expected to attend this event, but men were almost always excluded. Men had a legal and moral expectation to pay for their wives’ expenses in these festivities. The strange timing of the harvest festival—mid-winter—is significant as well. The Greeks regarded the festival as sacred to not only Demeter but also to Dionysus. With the inclusion of Dionysus in the festival worship, the date shifted towards the winter as “he possessed himself of the festivals of Demeter, took over her threshing-floor and compelled the anomaly of a winter threshing festival.”  In many ways, the festival was just as connected, if not more so, with Dionysus than with Demeter. Thus, we see the power and influence of the incoming god and of the importance of wine to Greek cult activity. Practically, Greeks were able to coax out a harvest just early enough to revel with Dionysus.

Despite being amongst the most documented of Greek festivals, very few records of what exactly occurred during Haloa. Because it was a predominantly, if not exclusively, women's festival, little information has survived, or was recorded at all, about its characteristics and rituals. In fact, one of the most detailed sources of Haloa actually consists of marginal notes from the 13th century AD on the Roman writer Lucian’s works.According to these notes, the women’s ritual practices involved “pits, snakes, pigs, and models of genitalia, all of which have a more or less marked sexual significance.”  We also know that the festival “is said to have comprised Mysteries of Demeter, Kore, and Dionysus.” Another source singled out these women's festivals as “containing the germ of ‘Mysteries,’” referencing here the Eleusinian Mysteries—annual initiation ceremonies devoted to the cult of Demeter and Persephone.

… Ritualistically, Haloa was similar to Thesmophoria, another festival in honour of Demeter, in the significance of women's participation. Both festivals involved “lusty words” and activities, an abundance of sexual symbols, and the consumption of much wine and pornographic confectionery. The women celebrated alone so that “they might have perfect freedom of speech” and some sources state that “the scared symbols of both sexes were handled, the priestesses secretly whispered into the ears of the women present words that might not be uttered aloud, and the women themselves uttered all manner of… unseemly quips and jests.”

Demosthenes highlights the role of the priestess, pointing out that she, rather than the Hierophant (chief priest at the Eleusinian Mysteries), presented the fruit offerings and conducted the initiation ceremonies under the presidency of women. He also emphasizes that it was unlawful to offer any blood sacrifice, using as example the story of a Hierophant who was cursed because he offered “in the court of Eleusis burnt sacrifice of an animal victim.” … “ Wikipedia

(Oct 14, 2022) Recent dream image combine water and fire - hot water pouring into a bathtub! I suppose that means the Baubo “meds” are working …


“ … Baubo …, legendary wife of Dysaules at Eleusis . When the goddess Demeter came to Eleusis in search of her daughter Persephone , she and little Iacchus, who accompanied her, were said to have been hospitably received by Dysaules and Baubo . Baubo offered both a strengthening drink, but the goddess, consumed with grief, declined. 

Thereupon Baubo, disturbed or jokingly, is said to have turned her bare behind to the goddess, whereupon Iacchus began to applaud; Demeter also had to laugh and accepted the drink offered.

According to a certain tradition, the Eleusinian hero Triptolemus was a son of Dysaules and Baubo ; their daughters were Protonoe and Nisa. 

The Baubo scene in the Demeter saga is probably an aetiological element in explaining certain forms of ritual exhibitionism which seem to have been common in the Eleusinian (?) and Orphic Mysteries . 

Viewed in a wider context, Baubo will be a personification of the female genitalia, which is common in the fertility cult.

The picture shows a statuette of Baubo, made of terra cotta in the 1st century AD in Fayum

Shaved vulva, so sexually free married woman”


“ … A syncretic figure of Isis and Aphrodite. The goddess is nude, with slender and balanced proportions, standing with her legs together and her arms lowered along her body. The face with delicate features is framed by hair styled in regular curls, short over the forehead and long falling loosely to the shoulders. The headdress consists of a wide basket (gr. kalathos) placed on a thin wreath of flowers. It is decorated with two diagonally tied ribbons. Remains of paint are preserved between the breasts and on the hip.

For a long time, these statues were thought to be “concubines” included in the grave goods of dead men. However, this is contradicted by the crown of Isis (Hathor), which is often worn by this figure. Dunand rightly considers these representations to be the Egyptian Isis (Hathor) combined with the Greek Aphrodite. László Török associates them exclusively with the fertility cult. Both these opinions are not contradictory.

These figurines, extremely popular in Greco-Roman Egypt, were treated as vota (gifts), and even, as we can guess from the preserved wedding prenup from the Roman Period, were given as a dowry to brides.

“ .. an unknown Ptolemaic queen with the knot between her breasts

Where does the Isis Knot come from?… But it appears to have been the Ptolemaic queens—who were often identified with Isis and Hathor/Aphrodite specifically—who eventually turned the royal knotted outfit into an attribute of Isis specifically.

The earliest instance is Arsinoe II (born 316 BCE) on a monument known as the Pithom stele. Notably, Arsinoe is deceased on the stele and wears the knotted costume and Goddess headdress and is called “the image of Isis and Hathor.”

Arsinoe III is also shown wearing the knotted garment and headdress and she, too, is sometimes assimilated with Isis, for example, in inscriptions that blessed the queen as “Arsinoe Philadelphus Isis.”

By the time of Kleopatra III, Isis had gained more prominence and the queen was more and more connected with Her. When Kleopatra III gave birth to a son, she became “Isis, Mother of the God.” What’s more, because the child had the same birthday as the Apis bull, Kleopatra III also became the “Isis cow,” the Mother of Apis. It is more than likely that Kleopatra III encouraged these types of identifications as she was in an intense rivalry with her mother, Kleopatra II, to whom Ptolemy VIII was still married when he also married his niece, Kleopatra III. Talk about complicated relationships. Ptolemies.

Then finally, by the time of the last of the Ptolemies, Kleopatra VII identified herself completely with Isis as “The New Isis.” … “ Isiopolis

“ … Assemblywomen (Greek: Ekklesiazousai; also translated as, Congresswomen, Women in Parliament, Women in Power, and A Parliament of Women) is a comedy written by the Greek playwright Aristophanes in 391 BC. The play invents a scenario where the women of Athens assume control of the government and institute reforms that ban private wealth and enforce sexual equity for the old and unattractive. In addition to Aristophanes' political and social satire, Assemblywomen derives its comedy through sexual and scatological humor. The play aimed to criticize the Athenian government at the time … “ Wikipedia

In terms of the attractions of make-up, we have numerous examples: variations in wigs, face and eye make-up, sheer linen dresses that emphasized the delights of the body, and tattoos. Compared to their neighbors, women in ancient Egypt had far more legal rights and could work in various trades. There was no marriage ceremony in Egypt; couples simply moved in together.

Late Roman Harpocrates - 200-250 AD - A black African dynasty closed out the Roman Empire …


(Oct 15, 2022) That’s a psychoactive image ! That’s the impression I get … - The newly risen sun of Horus/Harpocrates was probably the end point of the rites of Dionysus - and that’s probably another Nymph with a dildo - not a boy, but a phallic girl … The erect phallus/dildo was the sun ...

The lion skin suggests Hercules to the art gallery below, but to me Sekhmet-Min is probably the better guess - the famous "Lion and the hare" of Roman female phallus sex ... That female phallus seems to have been the end point of the rites of Dionysus - That's just my guess ... And the image of Tribades dancing around a massive erect phallus above at the rites of Demeter seem to confirm this impression ... Roman Egypt was sex soaked - but that was female phallus sex !

What was the end point of the death and ressurection rites of Dionysus? That's a great mystery ... The new sun in the form of the dildo for newly married Roman nymphs seems to be the right answer ...

Roman Egyptian Portrait of a young woman in encaustic, British Museum, Roman Period, 120-140 AD, Excavated by: Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie, Excavated/Findspot: Hawara, Middle Egypt: Fayum, Materials, lime wood, resin, wax


That’s a Roman girl from the Emperors family - she's wearing the Royal purple! - Not yet sexual from the look of things ...


“… Portrait of a young woman in encaustic on limewood: the panel is not painted at the upper corners, which have not been cut down. The direction of brushstrokes suggests an arched top. Black strips of resin remain at the sides of the panel. The painted surface is damaged in various places. Lead white was used as a ground, hematite for the pink robe, a copper-based pigment for the necklace and jarosite (iron sulphate) for the flesh tones. The background is a greenish grey.

The woman wears a tunic and mantle of mauve, with touches of cyclamen. Both clavi are visible: they are black with gold edges, and a row of stitches in white, representing the shoulder seam, runs towards the corner of the neckline of the tunic on the proper right side. On her left side a white undertunic is visible (the paint extends across the neck, but the remainder is probably an undercoat for flesh tones left incomplete). The mantle is folded back across the proper left shoulder, and appears above the line of the right shoulder.

The jewellery comprises a pair of hoop earrings, strung with three pearls, and two necklaces, much damaged. The upper necklace included emeralds and perhaps garnets and pearls; no emeralds appear in the lower necklace, which is set with larger stones perhaps linked with garnets. The woman's bun is secured with a large gold pin on the proper right side; traces of a second pin may appear on the left side, but the head of the pin is obscured by paint loss and resin.

The hair is drawn up from the face in the neo-classical style typical of Hadrianic portraiture, and wound around the back crown in a tightly drawn coil of plaits. The eyes are brown, large and almond-shaped. The thick eyebrows nearly meet over the nose, which is long with cream highlights. The lips are red and slightly open. Touches of red on the chin and cheeks enliven the lightly tanned complexion. The subject is shown in three-quarter profile. … “ British Museum

“ … Portrait of a woman in encaustic on limewood: longitudinal cracks run through part of the panel at intervals. Part of the painted surface is lost to the left of the figure. The background is grey beneath the head and neck, and greenish below the drapery (the green appears at the base of the panel).

Shown turned in three-quarter view, the subject wears a mauve tunic and a mantle drawn in a deeper shade, with dark red folds. The black clavus over the proper right shoulder is edged with gold and has no stitching. The mantle is worn over the proper left shoulder, its edge rolled back, and may be seen as a line on the proper right shoulder as it falls down the woman's back.

The jewellery consists of gold ball earrings and a gold necklace with pendant crescent with circular terminals.

The black hair is centrally parted (the parting is obscured by a crack in the panel). A row of snail curls frames the brow, and banks of them are shown at the sides of the head. The hair is plaited into a low bun at the back of the crown.
The dark eyes are very round; the arched eyebrows meet over the bridge of the long nose. The pink lips are slightly open. The cheekbones and chin are long and oval; they are tinted pink, with ochre used to model the contours. … “ British Museum

Naked Isis Aphrodite with a shaved vulva - meaning a married sexually free woman


Shaving the vulva was equated to doing what harlots did by a penis locked Roman entering into sexual “contest” with a fiery Roman matron (Apuleius cited by Richard Burton in the Priapea (69 Priapus)) ... That tells me Roman harlots were sodomizing penis locked Roman men - Regular sex was not what happened in the Roman brothel:

“ … Again and again we pledged each other, until I, now flushed with wine, restless in mind as in body, and moreover wanton with desire (even slightly wounded on the top of my inguinal organ), having removed my garment, showed to Fotus the impatience of my longing.

'Pity me,' I cried, 'and speedily relieve me! For, as you perceive, since I received the first of cruel Cupid's arrows buried in my very vitals I have been intent upon the contest, now eagerly approaching, which you had proclaimed for us, without the intervention of a herald. Look at my bow! its very vigour stretches it, and fearfulness for the battle, [and I dread] lest its string should be broken by over-great tension. But if you would pleasure me still more, loosen your gathered tresses, and with your hair flowing like waves, give me loving embraces.'

In an instant, having hurriedly snatched away all the eating and drinking vessels, she stripped off all her garments, and with her hair dishevelled in joyous wantonness, she was beautifully transformed into the image of Venus rising from the waves, shading for an instant too with her rosy hand her bared coynte--rather through coquetry than concealing it from modesty--from which, after the fashion of a harlot, she had plucked the hair.

'Fight,' she cried, 'and fight manfully, for I will neither yield to thee, nor turn my back. Face to face and close quarter, if you are a man! Prepare yourself and diligently attack, kill and be slain! The battle this day is without quarter.' … “

I am certain the intended effect of penis caging in Egypt was to force the male snake or Kundalini up the spine like in this illustration - Serapis is tightly bound by the energy of his snake


Serapis is a solar version of Lord Pluto - the Hades husband of Isis - Penis caging helped him rise up from the underworld :

“ … Serapis, also spelled Sarapis, Greco-Egyptian deity of the Sun first encountered at Memphis, where his cult was celebrated in association with that of the sacred Egyptian bull Apis (who was called Osorapis when deceased). He was thus originally a god of the underworld but was reintroduced as a new deity with many Hellenic aspects by Ptolemy I Soter (reigned 305–284 BCE), who centered the worship of the deity at Alexandria.

The Serapeum at Alexandria was the largest and best known of the god’s temples. The cult statue there represented Serapis as a robed and bearded figure regally enthroned, his right hand resting on Cerberus (the three-headed dog who guards the gate of the underworld), while his left held an upraised sceptre. Gradually Serapis became revered not only as a Sun god (“Zeus Serapis”) but also as a lord of healing and of fertility. His worship was established in Rome and throughout the Mediterranean, following the trade routes and being particularly prominent in the great commercial cities. Among the Gnostics (early Christian heretics who believed that matter is evil and the spirit is good) he was a symbol of the universal godhead. The destruction of the Serapeum at Alexandria by Theophilus, the patriarch of Alexandria, and his followers in 391 CE—together with the obliteration of other pagan temples (all with the encouragement of Emperor Theodosius I)—signaled the final triumph of Christianity not only in Egypt but throughout the Roman Empire. … “ Britannica

Dog-leash tanned Greek Egyptian priest of Serapis (Solar version of Lord Pluto of Hades)

“ .. Portrait of a priest of Serapis. Egypt, AD 140–160. - British Museum

Mummies in Roman Egypt sometimes included a realistic painted portrait of the deceased on wood or canvas, inserted into the case. The ruling elite believed in the traditional Egyptian cults but also wished to be commemorated in the Roman manner. This man wears a diadem with a seven-pointed star, worn by priests of the god Serapis – a fusion of Egyptian and Greek gods. The three locks of hair on his brow were associated with this cult during the reign of Antoninus Pius (r. 138–161). … “ British Museum

“ … Portrait, perhaps of a priest, in encaustic on limewood: the panel is cracked through the right side from the upper edge to the subject's proper left ear. A row of four nail holes indicative of reuse, or perhaps of attachment to a frame, runs across the panel 6.3 cm below the upper edge, and a row of three holes 9-9.5 cm above the lower edge. The background is a greenish cream.

The subject, a man of mature years, wears a creamy-white tunic with violet/pink clavus on the proper right shoulder. A mantle with brownish folds with cream highlights is worn over the proper left shoulder and around the back of the neck, but does not appear on the other side. The upper edge of the tunic and the central fold below the neck is rather clumsily drawn with a thick cream line. A shoulder seam appears as diagonal hatching across the clavus, lined up with the corner of the neck of the tunic.

In his hair the subject wears a narrow fillet, with a central gold star with seven points laid on a purple ground. The rest of the fillet is grey with cream highlights, perhaps representing an original in silver.

Below the fillet the dark brown hair falls in three locks on the brow in an arrangement typical of individuals associated with the cult of Sarapis. The hair is curly and even, the outer strands are tidily arranged. The beard and moustache are straight. The flesh is sunburned, with pink and cream highlights. The close-set, light brown eyes stare at the viewer; the impression of a severe intensity is heightened by the narrow down-turned mouth. The arched eyebrows are rendered with diagonal strokes.

Curator's comments
There are difficulties in reconciling this portrait of an individual with luxuriant hair with the convention of representing priests of Egyptian cults with shaven heads. Parlasca (1966) suggested that the star and corkscrew locks on the brow could represent the deceased as the god Sarapis. Against this view is the conventional mortal clothing. Goette (1989) suggests the subject may be a novice of the cult who died before ordination.

A date in the early Antonine period is indicated by the cut of the hair and beard, giving a boxy, solid appearance to the head, and by the naturalistic style of the painting of the head and neck, rendered with much greater care than the drapery.

(Oct 19, 2022) An article on the clitoris in todays New York Times - Doctors working in that area skip it - both male and female - The clitoris and vulva are in a blind spot -

Why is not explained - but the Freud castration theory from 1908 is still convincing to me !

The article states that clitoris is both poorly known and often damaged when work is being done down there from pure ignorance … Pleasure is not seen as being of much worth in itself … My impression from reading the article is of a hidden organ that nobody knows about - The clitoris is small but its nerve structure is actually pretty large and deep - The pleasure part is there for sure - but the mystical part is not easy to see - there is a hidden river of energy from the earth that flows through here …


"NY Times: ... Half the World Has a Clitoris. Why Don’t Doctors Study It?
The organ is “completely ignored by pretty much everyone,” medical experts say, and that omission can be devastating to women’s sexual health.
By Rachel E. Gross

PRINT EDITION A Blind Spot|October 18, 2022, Page D1 ..."

“ … Some urologists compare the vulva to “a small town in the Midwest,” said Dr. Irwin Goldstein, a urologist and pioneer in the field of sexual medicine. Doctors tend to pass through it, barely looking up, on their way to their destination, the cervix and uterus. That’s where the real medical action happens: ultrasounds, Pap smears, IUD insertion, childbirth.

If the vulva as a whole is an underappreciated city, the clitoris is a local roadside bar: little known, seldom considered, probably best avoided. “It’s completely ignored by pretty much everyone,” said Dr. Rachel Rubin, a urologist and sexual health specialist outside Washington, D.C. “There is no medical community that has taken ownership in the research, in the management, in the diagnosis of vulva-related conditions.”

Asked what she learned in medical school about the clitoris, Dr. Rubin replied, “Nothing that sticks out to my memory. If it got any mention, it would be a side note at best.”

Only years later, on a sexual-medicine fellowship with Dr. Goldstein, did she learn how to examine the vulva and the visible part of the clitoris, also known as the glans clitoris. The full clitoris, she learned, is a deep structure, made up largely of erectile tissue, that reaches into the pelvis and encircles the vagina.

Today, Dr. Rubin has appointed herself Washington’s premier “clitorologist.” The joke, of course, is that few are vying for the title — out of embarrassment, a lack of knowledge or fear of breaching propriety with patients. “Doctors love to focus on what we know,” she said. “And we don’t like to show weakness, that we don’t know something.” … “ NY Times Oct. 17, 2022

Kenyan women had the Clitoris cut at puberty circumcision - but that was just the tip - most of the Clitoris survived the cut - In the modern day world drugs are far more effective than genital cutting in closing up this eros doorway … There are always 2 parts of the psyche - one is from the earth and not visible … What I call the "earth sun" space ...

More married life: Boss lady and a black friend working her husband from the rear

Baubo opened this up - The clitoris on a large scale - or the female phallus - Isis Aphrodite - who in at least one sculpture has an erect phallus

Last night - after working on the hyena clitoris saw image of one of my “jinn” - a “hyena”with a large phallus pleasuring herself in my mothers Kenyan garden … That’s a transgressive image - my mother was a strict daily mass Roman Catholic - my parents marriage mess and my forced removal from Kenya was caused by my fathers sexual looseness!

As a child I sided with my mother - but as an old guy, I can finally see my fathers point of view ...


There might have been other reasons though for removing me from Kenya ... For example the end of Kikuyu control over the Kenyan government in the late 1970's - Everything can't be boiled down to petty personal issues - In my case there was probably a political issue ...

That was probably what Asherah sex was in ancient Israel - Queen Jezebel brought the cult down from Lebanon - but many of the Asherah images are black !

I think the queen of Sheba was a "hyena" or a phallic Amazon - Kikuyu mythology states that Amazons founded the tribe in 9 Amazon clans ... The founder of the tribe - Gikuyu of Mount Kenya had 9 daughters who were the Amazon lords of the Kikuyu ... I am certain ancient east Africans were practicing penis lock up!

- They call Kikuyu the "House of Mumbi" today - that was Gikuyus wife - That's probably more accurate - The Amazon Queen Mumbi was the alpha phallus not King Gikuyu! The image that recurs in my mind today is "Morbid Mumbi" - female circumcison and the evangelical church have robbed Mumbi of her power!

In the Babylon that Alexander conquered husbands were obliged to allow their wives and daughters to have sex outside marriage so long as it was paid for - That’s the world of the penis cage - marriage meant sexual emancipation for women in the penis caged Amazon world - and in Babylon marriage was not needed - fathers had to allow their daughters sexual freedom so long as it was paid for:

According to The Roman author Quintus Curtius Rufus 

“ … [5.1.36] Alexander's stop in Babylon was longer than anywhere else, and here he undermined military discipline more than in any other place. The moral corruption there is unparalleled; its ability to stimulate and arouse unbridled passions is incomparable.

[5.1.37] Parents and husbands permit their children and wives to have sex with strangers, as long as this infamy is paid for. All over the Persian empire kings and their courtiers are fond of parties, and the Babylonians are especially addicted to wine and the excesses that go along with drunkenness.

[5.1.38] Women attend dinner parties. At first they are decently dressed, then they remove their top-clothing and by degrees disgrace their respectability until (I beg my reader's pardon for saying it) they finally throw off their most intimate garments. This disgusting conduct is characteristic not only of courtesans but also of married women and young girls, who regard such vile prostitution as "being sociable". … “

Quintus Curtius Rufus, "History of Alexander the Great of Macedonia" - translated by John Yardley.


"Paid for" is not what it seems! - In the Cybele beer tavern phallic women paid penis locked men for sex - Princess Innana and the shepard Dumuzi being the founding example ... Romans called those "spintra" - penis locked male prostitutes - Martial demanded payment from Roman crones to have sex with him ...

More of the lions and the hare - Boss lady and a friend as soldiers over a locked slave


In Babylon women having sex outside marriage was coded into the state religion: there was an obligation for all women to honor Innana by having sex with at least one stranger in her temple at least once during their lifetimes

- As avatars of the phallic Innana that was without doubt female phallus sex over the locked male penis - the "Lion and the hare":

“ … There is one custom amongst these people which is wholly shameful: every woman who is native of the country must once in her life go and sit in the temple of Aphrodite and there give herself to a strange man. …

Once a woman has taken her seat she is not allowed to go home until a man has thrown her a silver coin into her lap and taken her outside to lie with her. As he throws the coin, the man has to say, 'In the name of the goddess Mylitta' - that being the Assyrian name for Aphrodite. …

When she has lain with him, her duty to the goddess is discharged and she may go home. … “

That’s the Jewish Isis Aphrodite and her daughter … Naked and shaved vulva … so married sexually free woman


“ …. Anat-Yahu

The papyri suggest that, "Even in exile and beyond, the veneration of a female deity endured." The texts were written by a group of Jews living at Elephantine near the Nubian border, whose religion has been described as "nearly identical to Iron Age II Judahite religion". The papyri describe the Jews as worshiping Anat-Yahu (mentioned in the document AP 44, line 3, in Cowley's numbering). Anat-Yahu is described as either the wife (or paredra, sacred consort) of Yahweh or as a hypostatized aspect of Yahweh. … “ Wikipedia


Yahweh or El had a wife - Asherah, and a daughter Anat - and both were from the Amazon tradition of full female religious nudity and the female phallus …

After Asherah, Anat came to the throne and chose Ba’al as her consort displacing Yahweh or El in the ancient Sumerian tradition ….

The Jewish Amazon goddesses did not hesitate to sex their sons and brothers and beat their fathers - Asherah had sex with her son Ba'al who was also sexed by Anat his sister - who also beat the throne out of El ... That was all locked male sex under the female phallus ! Anat almost certainly helped herself to Myth Myrhha sex - or sex with El ... Fathers were the first sex objects of Amazon girls ...


That's amoral by also hyper erotic Hyena sex! - In Hyena clans, all males are submissive to all females - and old Hyena males get slightly less aggression from their biological daughters ...

But how can you know that? It’s easy to see - the very large clitoris of the female spotted Hyena is always erect - and constantly being orally serviced by low status males… That’s a form of honey gathering like a bee hive … Or an Ostrich colony

The myth sounds disgusting but is no more strange than Isis sexing her brother Osiris - And Myth Myrrha or father daughter sex was an ancient tradition in Egyptian royal families ... Whenever the penis is locked up, female hypersexuality begins ...

Amazon sex means the person is fully present - The "earth sun" space is not an abstraction but a physical reality whenever the fire lights up ...

"rivales socii puellularum" translated as "allied rivals of the girls"

should really be the more literal

"rival partners of the girls"

 Egyptian Hathor vulva votive offering

“ … A faience (bluegreen ceramic paste) votive vulva … found at a Hathor shrine at Deir el-Bahri in Egypt. Hathor was honored by the Egyptians as a goddess of procreation, love and sex by both women and men. … “ bibleorigins

In Egypt the vulva was out there in the open! Like in Sumeria where the vulva of Innana was a central icon …

Shaved vulva ... meaning married sexually free woman or goddess ...


The vulva of Hathor is probably related to the Baubo story - Hathor roused a sulking sun god Ra with an exhibit of her vulva:

“ …. The Sun-God and the Stripper

Ra, the Sun-god was presiding over the Court of the Gods in the case of young Horus vs. his Uncle Set, in the matter of the inheritance of kingship of Egypt from the princeling's late father Osiris. The Court was about to grant Horus' petition and announce him King, when Ra disclosed his prejudice in favor of Set. Following a temporary suspension of the divine proceedings Ra seemed ready to decide the case in favor of the boy's wicked uncle.

At this point the god Babai arose and insulted the great Ra, mocking him with the words: "Thy shrine is empty!" Angered at Babai's impudent challenge to his dispensation of justice, Ra vacated his post, reclined on his back, and totally disrupted the proceedings.

The next day, Ra still lay upon his back ignoring everyone when his daughter Hathor, the Lady of the Sycamore Fig Tree, came into the court of his house and decided to attract his attention away from this angry sulking. Without any preliminaries she stripped off her clothing and exhibited her nude body to Ra. And, to make sure she had fully distracted the King of the Gods, Hathor exposed her vulva in front of his face and remained there until she got a response.

Well, her trick certainly worked. The Great God smiled and rose up to do his duty. The court was reconvened and eventually justice was carried out in the matter of Horus' kingship. The critical balance in the divine order had been restored and all of the credit for this great miracle must be given to the heavenly daughter who went down in history as Egypt's first divine flasher.

From "A rare mechanical figure from ancient Egypt" by Nicholas Reeves

- Like Baubo's exposed vulva - the exposed vulva of Hathor was certainly part of Egyptian Hathor rituals - The intent must have been to rouse the sexual fire of the caged Egyptian phallus ...

Baubo is probably Hathor - a hidden goddess - In my case a goddess of a very powerful dream experience in a cold Afro Alpine lake ... Maybe in somewhere in Mt Kenya


Hathor was sexually aggresive with her father! Who was probably sexually restrained by Hathors mother - That's a version of Myth Myrrha - and probably standard for all Egyptian father/daughter pairs - Like the Sumerian Innana and Enki - the sexual powers of Hathor descend from her father

In Egypt the queen ruled, but she had to have a locked phallus as her co-ruler as the example of Cleopatra above shows ... Then the locked king passed on his sexual powers to his daughter ... Like the Cleopatra example

This fetish object belongs to a group of female figures now thought of as Khener-dancers, and is one of the best known examples in private hands. These dancers played an important role in rituals to Hathor, the goddess of music, dance, love, fertility, and resurrection. First discovered in tombs from the Middle Kingdom dating to the 12th Dynasty, these female figures were initially interpreted as “brides of the dead” or concubines. Like the wooden paddle dolls that precede them, over the last century these more naturalistic sculptures have been discovered near temples and domestic dwellings leading to an expanded interpretation of their significance.

Molded and glazed in blue faience with black details, this figure’s sensual curves and bright color conveys sexuality and vitality which are inherent qualities of the goddess Hathor. Her upper body is narrow with arms straight and a close-cropped coiffure, while the lower half is swollen with truncated legs and an exaggerated pubic-triangle. The object’s overall shape echoes that of a menat, a sacred symbol of Hathor. The crown of the head is drilled with delicate holes for the insertion of real hair, and the numerous dots and dashes across her thighs and stomach symbolize tattoos. These, too, personify attributes of Hathor. In ancient Egypt, hair was seen as a symbol of resurrection for its ability to regenerate after being cut, and lozenge patterned tattoos were exclusively used by women who wished to amplify their sexual appeal.

The figure is essentially in the nude wearing nothing more than jewelry. Yet even her jewelry and blue skin continue to emphasis fecundity. The hip chain around the waist represents cowrie shells—a vaginal symbol—and the menat necklace with counterpoise around the neck is worn to foster fruitfulness and good health. Called tjehnet by the ancient Egyptians, meaning that which is brilliant or scintillating, faience was often used to describe the attractiveness of a woman’s skin. Indeed, from the Instructions of Ptahhotep, the vizier emphasizes the power of seduction by warning “do not be taken by a woman with a body of tjehnet.”(R. Bianchi, Gifts of the Nile, p. 25) This exquisite figure embodies the enchanting beauty and fruitfulness that could seduce all who lay their eyes upon her.

Naked Hathor dancer, 18th Dynasty - Shaved vulva, so married sexually free woman - brooklynmuseum


“ … Fertility Figurine
On View: Old Kingdom to 18th Dynasty, Egyptian Galleries, 3rd Floor

Statuettes of naked women with incomplete legs, like this example, have been found in Middle Kingdom tombs and houses. Early Egyptologists mistakenly identified them as concubines intended to provide the spirits of men with an eternity of sexual pleasure.

Recent studies show that both men and women used these figures to ensure fertility. In the home, they were believed to enhance a wife’s fruitfulness and a husband’s potency by invoking Hathor, the goddess of sexual love. As tomb offerings, they guaranteed the deceased’s sexual power in the afterlife.

The girl wears a “Hathor” wig with spiral curls in front and straight, squared lock in back, and is nude save for a girdle of cowrie-shells and beads and bead necklaces, indicated by black markings.

“ … If a general assignment to Hathor is accepted for this class of bronzes, then they make an interesting contribution to the discussion. It has been put to the present writer that, while the hands of these figures do not actively conceal their sexual parts, the mobility incorporated within both wood and bronze versions of this naked, bob-wigged type may have been intended to accomplish such concealment and revelation by grasping a liftable lost textile skirt. A bronze specimen excavated from the Heraion on the island of Samos hints at the validity of this proposition. The upper limbs of the Heraion bronze are frozen in position by corrosion: clearly, the figure was deposited in the temple in antiquity with its arms raised, and thus, one might presume, with its hypothetical skirt lifted in the now familiar Hathoric gesture of revelation and reinvigoration. If this was indeed the case, then the possibility highlighted above of an association between the concealing/revealing hands of the Metropolitan Museum’s statuette and the later anasyrma terracottas of Greco-Roman times would of course be strengthened. … “

Naked dancer with an exposed vulva and a bull and sun head.

I think she was more a goddess of carnality - The elusive fire is found in carnal sex more than romantic love

- That’s probably a bull head not a cow - Bull and sun head - Hathor got a bull phallus from her penis caged father Ra - the sun god who she exposed her naked vulva to in order to rouse him back to life …


The wood dolls above reveal Hathor as a goddess of carnality - Her dances were more erotic than seems normal for ancient Egypt!

The later Greek anasyrma or vulva revealing festivals of Bubastis, Apis and Demeter/Baubo were probably Hathor icons - The fire was generated by exposing naked vulvas to caged phalli ... at a father/ daughter level and also at a drunken mass and public level too:

“ … Egyptian religion celebrated the sensory pleasures of life, believed to be among the gods' gifts to humanity. Egyptians ate, drank, danced, and played music at their religious festivals. They perfumed the air with flowers and incense. Many of Hathor's epithets link her to celebration; she is called the mistress of music, dance, garlands, myrrh, and drunkenness. In hymns and temple reliefs, musicians play tambourines, harps, lyres, and sistra in Hathor's honor.

The sistrum, a rattle-like instrument, was particularly important in Hathor's worship. Sistra had erotic connotations and, by extension, alluded to the creation of new life.

These aspects of Hathor were linked with the myth of the Eye of Ra. The Eye was pacified by beer in the story of the Destruction of Mankind. In some versions of the Distant Goddess myth, the wandering Eye's wildness abated when she was appeased with products of civilization like music, dance, and wine. The water of the annual flooding of the Nile, colored red by sediment, was likened to wine, and to the red-dyed beer in the Destruction of Mankind. Festivals during the inundation therefore incorporated drink, music, and dance as a way to appease the returning goddess. A text from the Temple of Edfu says of Hathor, "the gods play the sistrum for her, the goddesses dance for her to dispel her bad temper."

 A hymn to the goddess Raet-Tawy as a form of Hathor at the temple of Medamud describes the Festival of Drunkenness (Tekh Festival) as part of her mythic return to Egypt. Women carry bouquets of flowers, drunken revelers play drums, and people and animals from foreign lands dance for her as she enters the temple's festival booth. The noise of the celebration drives away hostile powers and ensures the goddess will remain in her joyful form as she awaits the male god of the temple, her mythological consort Montu, whose son she will bear. … “ Wikipedia

(Oct 27, 2022) Egyptian sex: Symplegma - New to me but supposedly common in ancient Egypt - Here a Greek matron is sodomizing a black African male…

Received date in the Museum register [ Gayer-Anderson Museum, Cairo, Egypt ] is May 18, 1943. It was purchased from 2 EGP, Records of Anderson Pasha , Vol. 1. P. 46, no. 19

" ... The terracotta shows copulating pair. Both figures are standing with bent knees and represented half naked, The one to the front is shown with a hood revealing the front of curly/kinky hair round the childish face and is wearing a short tunic that is raised at the back. The back figure is shown with the curly hair partly covered with a veil and is wearing a short cloak with lots of drapes and is open from the front. The back figure puts the left hand over the right shoulder of the front figure while the right hand is holding the right waist.

Both figures seem to sit on a tree trunk or even riding a kind of animal since the front of the figure shows what appears to be a third leg preceding the two legs of both figures. The front figure is resting on his hands, the tips of which are broken, over that unidentified support. Both figures are turned with their faces to the right. They were sculpted from their right side while their left side (back of figure) is not carved. The figure measures 16 cm in height, 12 cm in width, and 3 cm in depth. It is fixed on a modern wooden base with a height of 4 cm. The figure is heavy with no holes and not holed out from inside.

Symplegma scenes were represented in ancient Egypt, whether upon walls of tombs, ostraca, papyri or through relief sculpture and statuary. It could have had certain significance since the ancient times related to the myth of Isis and Osiris. When Isis turned herself into a falcon to search for her husband, she found his body and placed herself on his erect phallus, this conceiving Horus. Plutarch has explained this union stating that the Egyptians view Osiris as the efflux of the Nile, and Isis as the earth and the Nile is fructifying it and being united with it. So the copulating pair usually represents the union of Isis and Osiris reflecting the fertilization of Egypt by the Nile flood.

This figurine shows the back adult as a female with the veil over the head, thus is would seem that both figures could have been involved in an acting ritual during a festival related to Nile inundation, in which the back figure acts as as female symbolizing that she is taking the active role. This can be simply interpreted through some of Isis hymns stating that she played the part of the man despite being a woman since Osiris was lifeless apart from his phallus. ... "

My guess is that was a required rite of passage after penis lockup for all young Egyptian boys .... Egyptian mythology is clear that the phallus is female starting from Mut on down to Isis and Harpocrates ... Its still startling to see an actual artifact of the mentule in action !

After 30 years of that - which has its roots in Bes or dwarf erotica - the Egyptian male phallus came loose at the Sed festival ; or the Djed pillar festival

- But my guess is by then the pattern was set - and anyway, the regular male phallus cannot compete with the fire of the mentule! Why? Because the male "earth sun" chakra is in the male rear - not in the male phallus ...

The baboon god Babi that cursed Ra for choosing Set over Horus “You have no Shrine!” - is purely African … There are no baboons left in Egypt - but baboons were a living part of my childhood in Kenya. He is also a god of the erect phallus - but I’m not sure that’s a male phallus - The extremely rare image above of a woman penetrating a young man sexually is more in line with Egyptian mythology - The phallus is female not male in ancient Egypt:

“ … Babi, also Baba,in ancient Egyptian religion, was the deification of the hamadryas baboon, one of the animals present in ancient Egypt. His name is usually translated as "bull of the baboons", roughly meaning "chief of the baboons".

Since baboons were considered to be the dead, Babi was viewed as a deity of the Underworld, the Duat. Baboons are extremely aggressive and omnivorous, and Babi was viewed as being very bloodthirsty, and living on entrails. Consequently, he was viewed as devouring the souls of the sinful after they had been weighed against Maat (the concept of truth/order), and was thus said to stand by a lake of fire, representing destruction. Since this judging of righteousness was an important part of the underworld, Babi was said to be the first-born son of Osiris, the god of the dead in the same regions in which people believed in Babi.

Baboons also have noticeably high libidos, in addition to their high level of genital marking, and so Babi was considered the god of virility of the dead. He was usually portrayed with an erection, and due to the association with the judging of souls, was sometimes depicted as using it as the mast of the ferry which conveyed the righteous to Aaru, a series of islands. One spell in a funerary text identifies the deceased person's phallus with Babi, ensuring that the deceased will be able to have sexual intercourse in the afterlife. … “Wikipedia

That shaved vulva is not incidental but central to the myth of Hathor - she used it to to seduce and marry her penis caged father - Which was probably a universal rite for penis locked Egyptian fathers and daughters - what the Greeks later called the marriage rite of the "unbuckling of the girdle of Hippolyta" where a father gave his daughter a ritual phallus:

This object is not part of The Met collection. It was in the Museum for a special exhibition and has been returned to the lender.

New types of figurines appeared during the Middle Kingdom depicting women with elaborate hairstyles who are either nude or wear garments that accentuate female anatomy. They have abbreviated limbs, wear jewelry, and are often tattooed. One type is formed from flat pieces of wood, the other from faience. Previously, they were described as concubines for the dead and more recently as sacred dancers tied to the cult of Hathor, though the absence of legs remains puzzling. … “ Metropolitan Museum of Art

“ ... An Egyptian Middle Kingdom Faience Fertility Figurine

… A statuette of a nude female, holding her arms and hands close to her sides and thighs. She is depicted in a standing position, but her legs end in rounded stumps at the knees, as is frequent in such figurines of the period. She is wearing a curled wig and has large, almond shaped eyes and a wide, full-lipped mouth. She has a pendant necklace around her neck and is wearing bracelets and a body chain; in addition to this her body is decorated with several tattoos. Turquoise blue glaze with the facial features and wig are defined in purplish black, as are her jewellery, tattoos and emphasized pubic triangle.

Background information:
Figurines of nude and often tattooed women, usually made of Egyptian faience but sometimes also of stone, wood, clay or ivory, have been found in burials dating to the Middle Kingdom, which gave rise to the idea that they were concubines, intended to give their master sexual pleasure in the hereafter. Usually these figures lack the lower legs, which long ago has been explained by Egyptologists as a method to prevent the concubine from escaping from their master in the hereafter.

However, similar statuettes have also been found in the tombs of women and, more importantly, in a non-funerary context such as household shrines. As a result they are now explained as representing a more general idea of female fertility and sexuality. These were powers that could imbue a deceased with new life, and in the world of the living could enhance a husband’s potency and a wife’s fruitfulness.

The fertility symbolism of such figurines could even be intensified, as is the case with a statuette in the Berlin museum (inv. no. 14.517; Schott 1930, p. 23; Desroches Noblecourt 1953, p. 34-36; Gnirs 2009, p. 138), depicting a woman carrying a child on her hip and inscribed with the wish that a certain man’s daughter will give birth, in analogy to the woman depicted. Given the fact that several animal hieroglyphs in its inscription are mutilated, the figure was clearly intended to be put in a tomb, and since a male possessive pronoun was used it must have been the tomb of a man. Obviously the deceased father was asked to use his influence from the hereafter and to intervene in the world of the living. A similar notion can be found on a statuette in the Louvre Museum (inv. no. E8000; Desroches Noblecourt 1953, p. 37-40).

The bright blue colour of the statuette is another indication of the fertility function of the statuette, because in ancient Egypt blue was the colour of water and of the fertility deities (see Schoske-Wildung 1985, p. 42).

Other interpretations of the function of these figurines have been put forward as well, such as votive statuettes, or objects that were ritually manipulated in rites to repel venomous creatures and to heal; possibly the owners and users of such figurines were priests or magicians. For an overview see Waraksa 2008.

Another naked Hathor dancer - in bluegreen faience - and with a shaved vulva …

“ ... Nubian women appear in Egyptian tomb and temple paintings as dancers for the goddess Hathor from the Middle Kingdom (2100-1900 BCE) through the Roman period (30 BCE-395 CE). These women performed wearing brightly colored leather skirts, cowrie shell belts, and displaying tattoos on their breasts, abdomens, and thighs. Recently, several tattooed, mummified female bodies have been excavated from the C-Group Nubian cemetery at Hierakonpolis, in Egypt. The dot and dash, lozenge-shaped tattoos found on those women are very similar to tattoos found on contemporaneous priestesses of Hathor buried at the royal funerary complex of the Middle Kingdom ruler, Mentuhotep II (2061-2010 BCE).” Solange Ashby

Female figures of this type, often found with burials especially of the Middle Kingdom, were in the past called "concubines." Nowadays they are understood in a more general sense as representations of the life-giving female powers of sexual attraction and giving birth, powers from which the dead could derive a new life. As is the case for most representatives of the type, this faience figure lacks the lower legs and has elaborate tattoos all over its body. The figure also wears a girdle of cowrie shell shaped beads and a long bead necklace crossed over the chest. The hair is arranged in the so-called "Hathor" style–two thick tresses with curled ends falling forward over the shoulders. … “ Metropolitan Museum of Art

“ … A painted limestone statue of court official Snefru-nefer, who was the Overseer of Palace Singers and Overseer of Entertainments during the late 5th Dynasty (circa 2400 BCE). He is depicted nude except for a broad collar around his neck and a pendant hanging on his chest from a long strand of beads. Depicting Snefru-nefer unclothed, and in such a youthful and muscular form can probably be interpreted as an entreaty to be born again in the hereafter. This sculpture (INV 7506) is now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, Vienna, Austria. …

One interesting aspect of this statue is that the subject is shown circumcised. Circumcision was commonly practiced among Egyptian males as evidenced by examinations of mummies. Current evidence shows that it was conducted in the pre-adolescent stage, possibly as an initiation rite between boyhood and manhood. There is however no evidence that circumcision was a universal male practice in Egypt, or that it was governed by one's social class or status. There is also no evidence that female circumcision was practiced. … “ Thoughts of Ancient Egypt , Facebook

It's also the world of the female nude dancing and feasting and beer and wine drinking of the rites of Hathor - and sex too - Sex appeased the goddess from the fierce phallic female lion god Sekhmet-Min to the loving and also phallic Hathor in her bull form:

“ … Hathor's sexual side was seen in some short stories. In a cryptic fragment of a Middle Kingdom story, known as "The Tale of the Herdsman", a herdsman encounters a hairy, animal-like goddess in a marsh and reacts with terror. On another day he encounters her as a nude, alluring woman. Most Egyptologists who study this story think this woman is Hathor or a goddess like her, one who can be wild and dangerous or benign and erotic. Thomas Schneider interprets the text as implying that between his two encounters with the goddess the herdsman has done something to pacify her. In "The Contendings of Horus and Set", a New Kingdom short story about the dispute between those two gods, Ra is upset after being insulted by another god, Babi, and lies on his back alone. After some time, Hathor exposes her genitals to Ra, making him laugh and get up again to perform his duties as ruler of the gods. Life and order were thought to be dependent on Ra's activity, and the story implies that Hathor averted the disastrous consequences of his idleness. Her act may have lifted Ra's spirits partly because it sexually aroused him, although why he laughed is not fully understood….” Wikipedia

Interestingly, though decorated and painted female figures interpreted as symbols and amulets associated with fertility have been dated as early as the Preynastic Period, funerary assemblages from the Middle Kingdom often lack the lower part of their legs.

“ … Ptolemaic Period
There is a wide range of figures which seem to be connected with fertility. In previous periods the focus of such figures seems to have been on the female body; in the Ptolemaic Period, under Greek influence, figures of men with an oversized phallus become very common. In particular, figures of the child/king/god usually identified as Harpocrates (Hr-pA-Xrd 'Horus the child') became very popular. Depictions of single women are also known, and there are explicit figures of copulating couples.

Or baboon as Thoth - Babi was more Old Kingdom - later dynasties saw the Baboon as the god of wisdom - Thoth:

“ … Thoth's roles in Egyptian mythology were many. He served as scribe of the gods, credited with the invention of writing and Egyptian hieroglyphs. In the underworld, Duat, he appeared as an ape, Aani, the god of equilibrium, who reported when the scales weighing the deceased's heart against the feather, representing the principle of Maat, was exactly even. … “ Wikipedia


“ … In ancient Egyptian religion, Aani is the dog-headed ape sacred to the Egyptian god Thoth. "One of the Egyptian names of the Cynocephalus Baboon, which was sacred to the god Thoth."

The Egyptian hieroglyphic word for "baboon" is …in the German style of transliteration. Attested roughly forty times in extant literature, this word refers to the animal itself. Many Egyptian gods can manifest in a baboon aspect or have other associations with the animal, including

* Hapy, a god who protects the canopic jar containing the lungs after embalming.

… Faience is a glazed ceramic known for producing bright colours, especially blues, turquoises and greens. It is produced from quartz or sand crystals mixed with other compounds and can be cast into moulds to create beads or amulets like these ones. Faience gimmers in the light and was believed by the Egyptians to represent rebirth and immortality. The colours had different symbolisms for example, blue was thought to reflect fertility and life. However, faience was not just manufactured into amulets and jewellery, the substance was used to create scarabs, furniture and cups. … “

“ … The tyet , sometimes called the knot of Isis or girdle of Isis, is an ancient Egyptian symbol that came to be connected with the goddess Isis. Its hieroglyphic depiction is catalogued as V39 in Gardiner's sign list.

In many respects the tyet resembles an ankh, except that its arms curve down. Its meaning is also reminiscent of the ankh, as it is often translated to mean "welfare" or "life".

The tyet resembles a knot of cloth and may have originally been a bandage used to absorb menstrual blood.

An early example of a tyet sign comes from a First Dynasty tomb at Helwan, excavated by Zaki Saad in the 1940s. This example predates the first written references to Isis and may not have been connected with her at the time. In later times, it came to be linked with her and with the healing powers that were an important aspect of her character.

Tyet amulets came to be buried with the dead in the early New Kingdom of Egypt (c. 1550–1070 BC). The earliest examples date to the reign of Amenhotep III, and from then until the end of dynastic Egyptian history, few people were buried without one placed within the mummy wrappings, usually on the upper torso. Ancient Egyptian funerary texts included many passages describing the use of different types of amulets and include spells to be recited over them.
Chapter 156 of the Book of the Dead, a New Kingdom funerary text, calls for a tyet amulet made of red jasper to be placed at the neck of a mummy, saying "the power of Isis will be the protection of [the mummy's] body" and that the amulet "will drive away whoever would commit a crime against him." Such amulets were often made of red jasper or similarly colored materials, such as carnelian or red glass. However, many others were made of green materials such as Egyptian faience, whose color represented the renewal of life.

Another type of knot is sometimes called the "Isis knot": a large knot in a mantle worn by Egyptian women from the Late Period onward. It is associated with Isis because it often appeared on statues of her in Hellenistic and Roman times, but apart from the name it is not related to the tyet.

The tyet can be compared with the Minoan sacral knot, a symbol of a knot with a projecting loop found in Knossos, Crete. … “ Wikipedia

The phallus is of a petite size, representative of intelligence in antiquity, and rests against a groove in-between the sagging testicles. A wide modern 18 karat gold suspension loop is fed through a small lateral perforation through the top of the pendant, and a smaller loop is attached above. A leather necklace cord enables the pendant to be worn. Phalluses are common Roman symbols and, when depicted in disembodied forms like this, were used as what Pliny wrote of as a "medicus invitae" to ward against the evil eye. Size (pendant): 0.875" H (2.2 cm); size (necklace): 14.5" H (36.8 cm); total weight (pendant and gold components): 2.8 grams; quality of modern gold: 18 karat.

“ … The Pompeii Lakshmi is an ivory statuette that was discovered in the ruins of Pompeii, a Roman city destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius 79 CE. It was found by Amedeo Maiuri, an Italian scholar, in 1938. The statuette has been dated to the first-century CE. The statuette is thought of as representing an Indian goddess of feminine beauty and fertility. It is possible that the sculpture originally formed the handle of a mirror. The yakshi is evidence of commercial trade between India and Rome in the first century CE.

Originally, it was thought that the statuette represented the goddess Lakshmi, a goddess of fertility, beauty and wealth, revered by early Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. However, the iconography, in particular the exposed genitals, reveals that the figure is more likely to depict a yakshi, a female tree spirit that represents fertility, or possibly a syncretic version of Venus-Sri-Lakshmi from an ancient exchange between Classical Greco-Roman and Indian cultures.

Africans were taught how to write by Apes! ! I just saw the baboons in King Tut's tomb paintings ...

That "smart ape" image occurs in fiction - for example “Planet of the Apes”, “King Kong” and other books like Michael Crichton “Congo” - but the wise Thoth ape and black African image never comes out right ...

“ … Congo is a 1980 science fiction novel by Michael Crichton, the fifth under his own name and the fifteenth overall. The novel centers on an expedition searching for diamonds and investigating the mysterious deaths of a previous expedition in the dense tropical rainforest of the Congo. Crichton calls Congo a lost world novel in the tradition founded by Henry Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines, featuring the mines of that work's title.

The novel starts in 1979, with an abrupt end to an expedition sent by Earth Resource Technology Services Inc (ERTS). in the dense rainforests of the Virunga region, in the heart of the Congo, when the team is suddenly attacked and killed by unknown creatures – soon, all contact with them is lost. The expedition, which was searching for deposits of diamonds, discovered the fictional lost city of Zinj. A video image taken by a camera there, and transmitted by satellite to the base station in Houston, shows a peculiar race of grey-haired gorillas to be responsible for the murders.

Another expedition, led by Karen Ross, is launched to find out the truth and to find the Lost City of Zinj, where there are believed to be deposits of a certain diamond, the type IIb, which are naturally boron-doped and thus useful as semiconductors, though worthless as gemstones. This time, the searchers bring along the famous White African mercenary Charles Munro, as well as a female mountain gorilla named Amy, who has been trained to communicate with humans using sign language, and her trainer Peter Elliot.

Time is of the greatest essence, as a rival consortium from corporations in Japan, Germany, and the Netherlands are also searching for the diamonds, turning the entire expedition into a race to the city of Zinj. Unfortunately for Ross and her team, the American expedition encounters many delays along the way, including plane crashes, native civil wars, and jungle predators.

Eventually, Ross and her expedition reach the Lost City of Zinj and discover the consortium's camp, like the original expedition's camp, in ruins and devoid of life. Ross and her team then encounter killer gorillas and are attacked. A brief battle ensues and several gorillas are killed.

After studying the corpses and performing a rudimentary field autopsy, it is concluded the animals are not "true" gorillas by modern biological standards, nor kakundakari (an African primate cryptid), but gorilla/chimpanzee/human hybrids: their mass and height is closer to humans than gorillas, their skull is greatly malformed (the "ridge" that makes gorilla heads look "pointy" is nearly nonexistent) and their pigmentation is on the border of albinism: light gray fur and yellow eyes. They also exhibit behavior unlike normal gorillas: they are highly aggressive, ruthless and partially nocturnal, as well as extremely social, forming troops of over a hundred, compared to a mere dozen animals. Elliot intends to name them Gorilla elliotensis after himself.

Afterwards, Ross, Elliot, and Munro explore the ruins and discover that the killer gorillas were bred by the ancient inhabitants of Zinj to serve as guards to protect the diamond mines from intruders. After several more attacks and the loss of contact with the ERTS HQ due to a massive solar flare, Elliot, with the help of Amy, finds a way to translate the language of the new gorillas (she refers to them as "bad gorillas") and piece together three messages ("go away", "no come", "bad here"); they stop fighting the humans and become confused, leaving the camp.

Their victory is cut short by the eruption of the nearby volcano (accelerated by explosives placed by Ross for her geological surveys) which buries the city, the diamond fields and all proof of the "new" species under 800 meters of lava. Ross, Elliot, Munro, and the rest of the team's survivors are forced to run for their lives. The team manages to find a hot air balloon in a crashed consortium cargo aircraft and uses it to escape.

In an epilogue, it is revealed that Munro was able to retrieve a few hundred carats of the valuable diamonds and sold them to Intel for use in a revolutionary new computer processor, while Amy was reintroduced into the wild and was later observed teaching her offspring sign language. … “ Wikipedia

Greek Egyptian Thoth as a baboon - bluegreen Faience under the solar (or lunar?) horns of a bull - c.332 - 30 BC, Louvre


“ … Appearance: Only two species of primate were known in Egypt: the cercopith and the dog-faced baboon (Papio hamadryas). The latter was sacred in Egypt. Probably a native of Nubia, it was brought into Egypt in pre-dynastic times.

Baboons were very popular in Egypt, and sometimes kept as pets. Many tomb scenes show the animal led on a leash, or playing with the children of the household. It is believed that some baboons were trained by their owners to pick figs in the trees for them.

The baboon was also very admired in Egypt for its intelligence and also for its sexual lustfulness. Baboon feces was an ingredient in Egyptian aphrodisiac ointments.

Meaning: The baboon held several positions in Egyptian mythology. The name of the baboon god Baba, who was worshipped in Pre-Dynastic times, may be the origin of the animal's name.

By the time of the Old Kingdom, the baboon was closely associated with the god of wisdom, science and measurement, Thoth. As Thoth's sacred animal, the baboon was often shown directing scribes in their task. As Thoth was a god of the moon, his baboons were often shown wearing the crescent moon on their head (as shown in the statue above). Baboons carried out Thoth's duties as the god of measurement when they were portrayed at the spout of water clocks, and on the scales which weighed the heart of the deceased in the judgement of the dead.

The baboon had several other funerary roles. Baboons were said to guard the first gate of the underworld in the Book of That Which is in the Underworld. In Chapter 155 of the Book of the Dead, four baboons were described as sitting as the corners of a pool of fire in the Afterlife. One of the Four Sons of Horus, Hapy, had the head of a baboon and protected the lungs of the deceased.

As mentioned earlier, the baboon was associated with the moon due to his connection with Thoth. However, the baboon was more often considered a solar animal by the ancient Egyptians. This may be due to the animals habit of screeching at daybreak or because of their practice of warming themselves in the early morning sun. The ancient Egyptians believed these were signs that the baboon worshipped the sun. Baboons were often portrayed in art with their arms raised in worship of the sun. They were also shown holding the Udjat, a solar symbol or shown riding in the day boat of the sun-god Re. … “ egyptianmyths

“ … This object was discovered during the excavations directed by J. D. S. Pendlebury for the EES in 1932. The statuette is on a limestone base.

Here Thoth, the deity of wisdom and knowledge, is shown in his alternative manifestation as a baboon, with a lunar disc and crescent atop his head. In his lunar form, Thoth was associated with dates, time, accounting and astronomy – all subjects that needed careful scribal recording.

“In front of him squats cross-legged a scribe intent upon his papyrus roll, as if inspired by his patron god.” 

Thus, this statuette reinforces the importance of Thoth to scribes and scholars. Its design suggests not only the superior status of the god – evident from Thoth’s elevated position, and the bowed head of the scribe – but also a close personal relationship between man and god, with the scribe listening attentively and taking dictation from the god.

Everyone at Amarna during Akhenaten’s reign was expected to worship the Aten as a sign of loyalty to the king. However, not all paid heed to this, which is demonstrated by the existence of statuettes like this. This is significant as it highlights that people did not suppress the symbols of the old gods, although it was disapproved of by Akhenaten.

It was found at location O47.16a, in the “Waddington Workshop”, named after its excavators – a large-scale workshop producing items for royal and priestly patrons. … “ endangeredheritage

" ....The Baboons and Monkeys of Ancient Egypt
by Jimmy Dunn writing as Royce Hiller

In ancient Egypt, baboons and monkeys often play a significant and mysterious role in religion and elsewhere. This somehow seems strange, as there are certainly no native monkeys or baboons to Egypt, nor have there been for some time stretching back to antiquity. However, it is clear that prehistoric Egyptians of the fourth millennium BC were familiar with monkeys, including the imposing and dangerous baboons and the African long-tailed monkey. Since that time, they have held a permanent place in ancient Egyptian religion as one of the more important animal forms into which the gods might be transformed. Also the very word "baboon" may be derived from ancient Egypt, perhaps from a linguistic root that characterized its sexual activities.

It seems likely that various types of monkeys inhabited the landscape of Egypt in the earliest of times. Prehistory saw a much wetter region with a landscape considerably greener than today, and the process of its drying out into mostly desert with only the fertile Nile ribbon cutting through the country, together with a few scattered oasis, may have been taking place even into Egypt's Old Kingdom. It is very possible that even during the Old Kingdom times, baboons and monkeys may still have lived in the southern part of Upper Egypt, though today their range is limited to southern Arabia (hamadryas), Ethiopia (monkeys), and the steppes of the Sudan (baboon). However, irregardless of tomb paintings depicting monkeys during the Middle Kingdom, it is doubtful that there remained indigenous populations of these animals by that late date.

By the New Kingdom, monkeys were being imported to Egypt, usually from Nubia or the land of Punt. Apparently they were kept in various capacities, perhaps even as pets, but they also were held in colonies by the temples, as were other animals that were associated with the gods. Within these sacred troops, there were probably births, though the rearing of these animals was probably only partially successful. By the Late Period, we find buried in the necropolises various such animals including hamadryas or the sacred baboon (papio hamadryas), baboons (Papio cynocephalus anubis), green monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops), red monkeys (Cercopithecus pata), and the barbary ape (Macaca sylvanus)

Though many of these animals were considered to be a vessel that could be inhabited by the gods, and must have been given considerable care, investigations into the animal necropolises of Saqqara and particularly Tuna el-Gebel have revealed that their life expectancy in Egypt was very limited. Of the two hundred or so specimens that have been examined, hardly any lived into their sixth through tenth years. Unfavorable living conditions resulted in undernourishment and the lack of freedom of movement and sunlight led to rickets, degenerative bone diseases and probably tuberculosis. While the knowledge of the ancient Egyptians may even today be impressive to us, they seem to have lacked the ability to provide the proper care for these animals.

Beyond religious uses, monkeys were also certainly kept as pets in the houses of the upper class, though they were unlikely to have been allowed to roam the house, despite the depiction of green monkeys, as well as cats, geese and ducks, under the chair of the wife of a tomb owner. Green monkeys are actually dangerous animals, and they must have been kept firmly on leashes, as they are usually depicted in tribute scenes.

Monkeys and baboons were also later exported from, or at least through Egypt to various locales such as to the Assyrian court and to Syria. A few monkey keepers even appear in the Assyrian city of Nineveh.

The mysteriousness of the monkey in Egyptian art comes from an inference of symbiosis involving humans and monkeys. As early as the Old Kingdom, we find scenes depicting monkeys engaged in various human activities, many of which were questionable while some were impossible. Various scenes depict these creatures performing dances and playing music, participating in fig harvests or climbing dom palms and throwing the fruit down. They are present at winepresses or beer making, and even helping with the morning toilet in the women's chamber. They appear unrealistically rigging sea going boats and in boat building scenes. During the New Kingdom, on ostraca and papyri, there are particularly common depictions of monkeys portrayed in various playful human poses. However, scholars such as Deiter Kessler believe that there were no trained monkeys in ancient Egypt, and that most such scenes have some sort of "religio-theological function", though particularly on New Kingdom ostraca there may have also been an element of humor.

We probably do not completely comprehend the significance of monkeys and baboons in Egyptian religious symbolism, but there is no doubt that they were kept as ritual animals since the earliest periods of Egyptian history. The fact that baboons displayed human characteristics may have contributed to the early identification of the deceased ruler with the animal. It is even possible that mummified baboons were used to represent the deceased royal ancestors of the Predynastic chieftains. During the ceremony to renew the physical world and the person of the ruler, the individual ancestors were ritually deified in the form of baboons and received cultic offerings. The erection of wooden kiosks containing ancestor baboons at the sed-festival of royal rejuvenation may have developed from this earlier practice. An image of a baboon representing King Narmer, erected by an official, implicitly suggest the transformation of the king into a baboon, no doubt as part of a rejuvenation festival. The king was identified with a baboon god known as the "Great White One." Some scholars believe that the title of this god is derived from the silver-gray mane of a dominant hamadryas. There are also small, Early Dynastic plaques that show the king or priests performing the Opening of the Mouth ceremony and transfiguration before monkeys.

However, monkeys were not necessarily considered benevolent creatures. There were rites involving monkeys that are documented by early illustrations and alter by religious texts that describe the danger of monkeys "who cut off heads". In fact, the image of a baboon with raised tail serves as the hieroglyph for "enraged". The baboon's wildness made it into a dangerous, apotropaic intercessory, being the primordial creation in a mythical landscape. For example, four baboon-like creatures guarded the mythical "Lake of Fire" in the Egyptian underworld.

Monkeys and baboons played an essential role in Egyptian cosmogony. Various gods were portrayed as these creatures, and some of the earliest deities were sometimes depicted with baboon heads. One of the Four Sons of Horus, Hapy, who was associated with mummification, was represented as a baboon-headed canopic god. The green monkey, particularly when depicted shooting with bow and arrows, was an aspect of the invisible primeval god, Atum.

The baboon also became an aspect of the sun god Re, as well as of the moon god Thoth-Khonsu. The ancient Egyptians who observed the baboon barking at the rising sun gave rise to a favorite theme in sculpture, paintings and reliefs of a baboon worshiping the sun with raised hands. Monkey demons as the companion of the sun god appear in the royal netherworld texts, though along side their positive role was the dangerous aspect of the baboon, whose form could also be assumed by the enemy of the gods such as Apophis and Seth.

Sexual potency and prowess were associated with the baboon god Bebon, who was closely related to another baboon god named Baba (Babi). The latter god had red ears, blue hindquarters and the features of Seth.

Of course, the squatting baboon became an early, visible and protective form of Thoth, one of Egypt's most notable gods associated with knowledge and scribes. The baboon of Thoth (also called Isdes) became an assistant in the judgment hall in the underworld.

Thoth was also a moon god and the identification of the baboon with him eventually resulted in the baboon's association with the moon god, Khonsu. At the Temple of Khonsu in Thebes, statues of Khonsu in the form of a baboon fronted the complex. In the Late Period, we know from a baboon tomb at Saqqara that the god Thoth-Khonsu became an important nocturnal oracle god, to whom written petitions for the priests were submitted. In this form, during the Greek Period, he was called Metasythmis, meaning "hearing ear".

By the Late Period, titles such as "Priest of the Living Baboon" or "Priest of the Osiris-Baboon" were held by individuals who served gods in the court of the sanctuaries that had the form of baboon statues. They also looked after the sacred temple monkeys. The sacred troops of baboons functioned in small groups. The best known example are those from Memphis, and Ptolemaic texts from the Necropolis at Saqqara confirm that a colony of these animals was kept in the temple of Ptah "under his Moringa-tree" in the valley. There may have been a dozen or so in the colony at any one time. One of these would have been singled out as an oracular and given the name, "the face of the baboon has spoken".

Unlike baboons, there was no personal worship of monkeys in Egypt. They were deified only after they died, and were kept exclusively as ritual animals in the temples prior to this. The ritual interment of these monkeys may very well have begun with those buried in a tomb during the reign of Amenhotep III in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes. The animals may have been used during the sed-festival of that king.

Not until the the 26th Dynasty were sacred baboons buried in the ibis necropolis near Tuna el-Gebel. However, by the Ptolemaic Period, monkey mummies are found alongside those of ibises and falcons in almost every animal necropolis. The highest quality burials of monkeys are found in the well documented baboon galleries of Memphis at Saqqara, but also in the animal cemeteries of Tuna el-Gebel, Abydos and the Valley of the Monkeys at Wadi Gabbanet el-Girud in southern Thebes. These burials all probably date to the late Greek and early Roman Periods.

At first, baboons were buried in simple wooden coffins. From the 26th Dynasty, mummified baboons were buried in wooden coffins. At the very beginning of the Greek Period under its first two rulers, the baboons were buried in special rooms where they were placed in costly limestone sarcophagi. During this period, they were sometimes interred in fairly large rock-cut chambers at Tuna el-Gebel. There, a special room at the foot of the entrance steps provided statues of Thoth in the form of a baboon and that of an Ibis. The rock cut chambers were lined with stone blocks and decorated with ritual scenes. In front of the (often several) chambers' cult areas was a four-step staircase with offering stands and libation slabs. These cult areas of the early Greek Period had been sold to priestly families, who doubtless lived off the income from petitioners and the donations from the state on the occasion of religious festivals. After Ptolemy I and Ptolemy II, the practice of using wooden coffins returned.

Much of what we know of baboons and monkeys in ancient Egypt is derived from these burials. For example, we know from that sacred temple baboons had individual names, but there is no evidence for that with regard to green monkeys. In fact, the temple baboons of the Ptolemaic Period buried at Saqqara have their genealogies inscribed on their coffins, often along with their dates of birth and death. This was not always the case. The deified baboon first appears at Tuna el-Gevel as "Osiris-Baboon, justified", with no individual name. The first time a personal name appears for a baboon was on a piece of linen from the 26th or 27th Dynasty. During the Ptolemaic period the names of baboons are known from the stone false door slabs of their coffin niches, from ritual scenes in the cult chambers of the sacred baboons, and from papyri that mention the cultic places of specific sacred baboons in the galleries. The Hermopolitan baboons often had names such as "Thoth-has-come", "Thoth-is-the-one-who-has-given-him", "Thoth-has-been-found", or "the-strong-featured-one-has-come".

It should also be noted that monkeys were readily used as decorative elements on three dimensional objects, such as toilet articles and toys. They also appear on scarabs and as statuettes. From the New Kingdom onward, temple statues of baboons are somewhat common. They frequently appear to be squatting on a raised platform, often accessed by a flight of stairs. In the Hermopolis of Middle Egypt, giant quartzite baboons belonging to the reign of Amenhotep III were found. These may have originally been grouped around a sacred lake. Other large statues of monkeys once stood in the entrance areas to the animal cemeteries. In the temple of Babylon in Old Cairo, a statue of a green monkey once stood in the forecourt as the town god.

Hence, from the beginning of Egyptian history through at least the beginning of the Christian period, baboons held a very consistent and important role in ancient Egyptian religion, in many different aspects, from demon to protector. They became associated with a number of the most important Egyptian gods, as well as the king, even though through most of the period, they would have had to be imported from abroad. … “ touregypt

This was a common thing in Rome - sacrifice of the phallus - “4 to 7 inches” - to Isis. My guess is the built up energy of the penis lock caused that madness ….There was a day at the start of spring in March dedicated to that act of self castration to Cybele …

In this satire, Juvenal claims Catullus - who wrote in praise of the Mentule or female phallus - went all the way for Isis:

Juvenal Satire XII 1-82: Safe Return

“ ….This day is sweeter to me than my own birthday, Corvinus,
It’s the day when the festal turf awaits the promised victims.
We bring a snow-white lamb for Juno, queen of the gods,
And its equal for Minerva, with her Gorgon-headed aegis;
While the sacrifice to Tarpeian Jove tugs petulantly at the
Long tether, making the rope quiver, and tossing its head;
Since it’s a spirited calf, you see, ready for temple and altar,
For sprinkling with pure wine, one already ashamed to suck
At its mother’s teats: with budding horns, it butts the oak tree.
If my personal resources were ample, a match for my feelings,
We’d be dragging a bull fatter than Hispulla to the slaughter,
One slowed by its very bulk, not nourished in local pastures,
But its lineage the product of the fertile fields of Clitumnus,
And its neck would be bowed, for the tall attendant’s blow.
All this is to mark my friend’s safe return, he who trembles
Still at terrors past, filled with amazement yet that he survived,
For besides the dangers of the sea he escaped the lightning too.
A single mass of dense cloud shrouded the sky in darkness,
While sudden flashes of fire struck the yardarms. Every man
Aboard thought he had been hit, and thought shipwreck as
Nothing compared to a death enveloped in blazing canvas;
It’s always so, just as serious, if when a storm of poetry rises,
Behold there’s some other crisis! Listen and pity once more,
Though the rest is on a par with that experience, dreadful
But not uncommon, as all those votive tablets in the shrines
Of Isis bear witness; who of us is unaware that artists earn
A living from painting them as offerings to the goddess?
That kind of ill-fortune overtook my dear friend Catullus.
With the hold half-full of water, and the waves already
Driving the stern this way and that, and the white-haired
Helmsman’s skill unable to counteract the swaying mast,
He then tried to deal with the wind by jettisoning the cargo,
In imitation of the beaver that in its desire to escape death,
Will bite off its testicles and render itself a eunuch: then
The drug, castoreum, is made from its preputial glands.
‘Take everything I’ve got,’ cried Catullus, willing now
To hurl even his most precious possessions overboard,
Purple-dyed clothes fit even for some tender Maecenas,
And others made from the wool of flocks tinted by their
Grazing on special grasses, plus the effect of the hidden
Powers of the fine water, and climate, of southern Spain.
He’d no hesitation in hurling his silver plate away; dishes
Made for Parthenius, Domitian’s chamberlain; a mixing
Bowl big as an urn, fit for Pholus the thirsty centaur, or
Even Fuscus’ wife; baskets; a thousand plates; and a pile
Of engraved cups that Philip of Macedon once drank from.
Is there another such man, in all the world, with the will
To set his life above money, his survival above his goods?
Overboard went most of what’s useful; there was still no
End of danger. Then, driven by necessity he resorted to
Taking a blade to the mast, so as to extricate himself from
His narrow strait: taking that ultimate risk, where the remedy
We adopt makes the vessel we’re journeying in even weaker.
Away then, commit your life to the winds, rely on a broken
Plank, four inches of pinewood away from death, or perhaps
Seven inches away from death, if the planking is extra thick;
And remember next time, along with your nets full of bread
And the bellied flagons, to take some axes for use in a storm.
But once the waves died down, and the passengers’ state
Improved, and destiny triumphed over the wind and sea;
Once the Fates began to weave a stronger thread, benign
Hands happily winding white wool into the yarn; and once
The wind arose, though no more than the lightest breeze,
The wretched vessel, ran on, its manoeuvrability impaired,
Every cloth spread to the wind, with the one remaining sail.
Now that the fierce southerly winds were abating, the sun
Returned bringing fresh hope of survival. Then the heights
Of Mount Alba, loved by Iulus, Aeneas’ son, and preferred
By him to Lavinium, his stepmother’s city, came in view,
Its peak named for the white sow whose litter amazed the
Delighted Trojans, and the novel sight of her thirty teats.
At last the ship passed the Tuscan lighthouse and entered
The breakwaters of Portus Augusti, that quiet the waves,
Those arms that leave Italy’s shore, stretch out and meet,
In the sea; no ancient harbour created by nature is more
Impressive. Then the master steered his crippled vessel
Into the inner roads of the harbour, so sheltered a pleasure
Boat from Baiae could cross, where sailors, heads shaved
To fulfil their vow, tell, in safety, garrulous tales of peril. … “

Garden of Priapus - 1625

Statuette of Aphrodite (stone)
Greek, (4th century BC) / Greek,
Museu de Montserrat, Abadia de Montserrat, Spain

Naked Aphrodite with a shaved and exposed vulva

That’s a pre Greek Egyptian world - Just Aphrodite - but it was the same goddess of the Ptolemy dynasty Isis Aphrodite - The goddess that Roman and Greek men locked their phalli for …

The next step was producing the phallic version or Harpocrates in Egypt - Done by Nymph and dildo dancing and sex in the rites of Dionysus ….


My guess is the nude and exposed vulva Aphrodite was the Bona Dea of Juvenal’s satire …Below is is a modern translation of Juvenal which I feel does not focus on the Christian rumors of a diminished manhood or penis lock of the Hierophant in the Rites of Demeter … That female lust of Ancient Rome and Greece was not modern female lust ...


Juvenal Satire VI: 314-345
The Rites of Bona Dea

“….All know the secret rites of the Good Goddess, when the pipe
Stirs the loins, and the maenads of Priapus, maddened they say
By wine and horns alike, go tossing their flowing hair about
And howl. O how all their hearts are on fire for sexual pleasure
How they squeal then to the dance of desire, and how powerful
The torrent of undiluted lust that covers their drenched thighs!
Saufeia doffs her garland, challenges the brothel-keeper’s
Slave-girls, then goes on to win the prize for shaking her arse,
She herself, in turn, admires Medullina’s undulating wiggles:
The contest’s between the ladies, their skill matches their birth.
Nothing is simulated in play, everything there is done for real,
Enough to light a spark in Priam, Laomedon’s son, grown cold
With furthest age, or even in old Nestor’s ruptured scrotum.
Then comes the restless itch of delay, then it’s naked woman,
And the shouts from the whole grotto echo there, in unison,
‘Now’s the moment, admit the men.’ If by chance the lover’s
Asleep, she’ll tell his son to don a hood and hurry to join them;
If that’s no use, she’ll summon a slave; if there’s no prospect
Of slaves, she’ll hire the water-man; if he’s nowhere to be found,
And there’s a lack of men, not a moment slips by, before she’ll
Accommodate her arse, freely, to a donkey’s rude attentions.
If only our ancient rites, or our state ceremonies at least, might
Be conducted free of such evils; but every India, every Moor
Knows about Clodius Pulcher, dressed as a lute-girl, bringing
A cock, one bigger than both of Caesar’s Anti-Cato speeches
Put together, into that place, from which even a male mouse flees
Conscious of its balls; that place where they’ll command any picture
To be veiled that happens to portray the form of the opposite sex.
In the old days, what human being ever scorned the gods’ powers,
Or dared to laugh at Numa’s earthenware libation-bowls, the black
Pots, and the little fragile plates found on the Vatican Hill?
But now does any sacred altar exist that lacks it’s own Clodius? … “

Naked with a shaved vulva, so married sexually free woman

That was female lust caused by the bluegreen faience locked Egyptian phalli above …

Garden of Priapus - 1627

Another bluegreen Egyptian Faience Phallus amulet

From Juvenal above we learn that in Rome there was an artist community that created these votive offerings to Isis - it was not a rare occurence - We also get the example of Catullus un-manning himself - some of those phallic offerings were actual castration like sacrificing a white sheep or a bull to the gods!

When I posted that I received inappropriate female erotic reactions to this in the dream space ... Blood sacrifice is a form of erotica …


Blood sacrifice is also the central image of the Catholic church ... I do not remember an erotic charge from that, but that has to be part of the strength of the church

Self castration was not a new idea to Catullus - he wrote eloquent poetry about the madness that caused a Roman nobleman to cut off his testicles in a religious frenzy in the mountains while worshipping the Phrygian goddess Cybele - Catullus 63

The other side of that cutting off is still a secret place - but my guess is a place of power - By sacrificing his manhood to the goddess , the worshipper of Cybele was absorbed into the goddess - there was a form of spiritual elevation in the remote mountains of Asia Minor that took place every year - Cybele's priests were male Eunuchs and phallic Amazons and all of them took part in regular religious sexual orgies …

And there was real power there - all 3rd century AD Roman coins feature the Emperor as the castrated Attis and the Augusta as the phallic Cybele ...


“ … Attis, also spelled Atys, mythical consort of the Great Mother of the Gods (q.v.; classical Cybele, or Agdistis); he was worshipped in Phrygia, Asia Minor, and later throughout the Roman Empire, where he was made a solar deity in the 2nd century AD. The worship of Attis and the Great Mother included the annual celebration of mysteries on the return of the spring season. Attis, like the Great Mother, was probably indigenous to Asia Minor, adopted by the invading Phrygians and blended by them with a mythical character of their own. According to the Phrygian tale, Attis was a beautiful youth born of Nana, the daughter of the river Sangarius, and the hermaphroditic Agdistis. Having become enamoured of Attis, Agdistis struck him with frenzy as he was about to be married, with the result that Attis castrated himself and died. Agdistis in repentance prevailed upon Zeus to grant that the body of the youth should never decay or waste. Other versions also exist, but they all retain the essential etiological feature, the self-castration.

Attis was fundamentally a vegetation god, and in his self-mutilation, death, and resurrection he represents the fruits of the earth, which die in winter only to rise again in the spring. In art Attis was frequently represented as a youth, with the distinctive Phrygian cap and trousers. … “ Britannica


Eunuchs had sex in Rome - The Roman matron always had a male bath slave - and as Juvenal notes the matron was the one who ordered the removal of those balls soon after the first signs of a beard began to show … The Roman bull was female not male …


Juvenal Satire VI:Ox1-34 and 346-379
And Those Eunuchs!

“… In all the houses where men live and entertain who embrace
Obscenity, and whose fidgeting right hands stop at nothing,
You’ll find all there resemble a vile bevy of lewd dancers.
These creatures are allowed to soil the food, and stand beside
The sacred table, and cups are washed that should be smashed
If Colocyntha, or bearded Chelidon, have drunk from them.
Thus the gladiator-trainer’s place is purer and better than their
Hearths, since in his troop the lightly-armed gladiators are kept
Away from the heavy. And isn’t it true that the net-men don’t
Associate with the lowly amateurs, that the shoulder-guards
And tridents of naked warriors are never kept in the amateur’s
Equipment locker? There’s a lowest class for such people
In every school, and heavier fetters for them in every prison.
Yet your wife makes you share the goblet with such objects,
With whom a yellow-haired whore from a ruined tomb
Would refuse to drink, despite the Alban or Surrentine wine.
It’s on their advice that women suddenly marry or divorce.
It’s with them they share life’s boredoms and anxieties. It’s
From such teachers they learn how to wiggle their arse and hips,
And whatever else the instructor knows. Yet he’s not always
To be trusted: a hair-netted adulterer he’ll paint his eyelids
With mascara, and strut around with his saffron gown undone.
You should be the more suspicious, the smoother his voice,
The more often his right hand lingers near his chubby loins.
He’ll prove virile enough in bed; there he’ll remove his mask,
An expert Triphallus, dancing the part of Alexander’s Thais.
‘Who do you think you’re fooling? Keep that pantomime for
Others! I bet, you’re every inch a man. I’d swear it: confess!
Or must we subject the female slaves to the torturer’s rack?
I know the warnings and advice that all my old friends offer:
“Lock the door, and keep her close.” But who is to guard the
Guardians themselves, when they win a prize for secrecy re
The lewd girl’s affairs?’ In crime, complicity guarantees silence.
The skilful wife anticipates, and therefore begins with them.
There are women thrilled by effete eunuchs, with their kisses
Ever-gentle, and their hopeless never-to-be-fulfilled beards,
Then, there’s no need to use abortifacients. It’s the very height
Of pleasure for them, when loins already ripe with youth’s hot
Blood and its dark plectrum, are dragged away to the surgeons.
That’s why the testicles are allowed to drop and develop first
And afterwards when they’ve achieved two pounds in weight,
Heliodorus has them off, to the barber’s loss but no one else’s.
It’s a truer, more wretched debility the slave-dealer’s boys are
Seared by, left shamed by the purse and chickpeas that remain,
But the man made a eunuch by his mistress is noticed by all,
From afar, as he enters the baths, and there’s no doubt he can
Challenge Priapus, who’s the guardian of vineyard and garden.
He may sleep with his mistress, Postumus, but don’t entrust your
Bromius, once he’s no longer smooth and hairless, to that eunuch.
And women both high and low feel the same lust these days;
The woman who treads the dirty pavement in bare feet, she’s
No better than one who’s borne on the shoulders of tall Syrians.
Just to watch the Games, Ogulnia is forced to hire a dress, forced
To hire attendants, a chair, the cushions, even the female friends,
And a nurse, and a yellow-haired girl, whom she can order about,
Yet she chooses to give away whatever’s left of the family silver,
Down to the very last dish, as presents for smooth-skinned athletes.
Many are short of things for the house, but none feel any shame
About being poor, nor will they temper their habits to their means.
Their husbands sometimes look ahead, and feel forebodings of
Cold and hunger, learning at last that lesson taught by the ants:
But a spendthrift woman has no idea of diminishing resources.
She’ll give not a thought to the cost of her pleasures, as if coins
Forever reborn keep burgeoning from an empty treasure chest,
Forever available to be gathered from a newly-replenished heap. … “

That’s a Greek Egyptian penis lock - Naming and looking at this was an ancient magic spell against the evil eye - And I think modern too -

But equally important was the built up dam of erotic energy - that sometimes overflowed into the “Cybele frenzy” that caused men to sacrifice their balls altogether to the goddess on March 24, the day of Cybele self emasculation - Dies Sanguinis ("Day of Blood") ...

According to Juvenal lustful Roman matrons paid good money to unlock the penis lock of actors in the theatre - That’s the unusual image of female not male lust - caused by the penis lock: “They’ll pay a fortune to get an actor’s clasp undone” ... in this recent translation of Juvenal:

“ …Satire VI:60-81
Look At Them In The Theatre

Can you find any woman that’s worthy of you, under
Our porticoes? Does any seat at the theatre hold one
You could take from there, and love with confidence?
When sinuous Bathyllus dances his pantomime Leda,
Tucia loses control of her bladder, and Apula yelps,
As if she were making love, with sharp tedious cries.
Thymele attends: naive Thymele learns something.
But the rest, when the stage-sets are packed away,
When the theatre’s locked, and the only sound’s outside,
When the People’s Games and the Megalesian are done,
Clutch sadly at Accius’ mask, his wand, or his tights.
Urbicus, in the Atellan farce, in his role as Autonoe
Invokes a laugh, and lo, penniless Aelia falls in love.
They’ll pay a fortune to get an actor’s clasp undone,
They’ll halt Chrysogonus’s singing. Hispulla’s mad
For a tragedian: you think it’s Quintilian they fall for?
You’re marrying a woman who’ll make Echion a father,
Glaphyrus, the lyre-players, or Ambrosius with his pipe.
Let’s set up platforms stretching along the narrow streets,
And decorate the doorposts and lintels with laurel boughs,
So your noble child, dear Lentulus, there in his tortoiseshell
Cradle, shall remind us of Euryalus, perhaps, the gladiator! … “

Greek Egyptian Phallic Amulet, 7th-4th centuries BC, Egyptian faience, 2.3 x 1.4 x 4.3 cm - Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest

My guess is that massive phallus was the effect of Egyptian penis lock up - Massive eros - which caused massive lust in ancient Egyptian women! - That image is proof of the Egyptian penis cage - that image does not exist in circumcised society ...

Egypt, like Rome, also probably had a tradition of male self-emasculation caused by the pressure of the penis cage - King Akhenaten is often depicted as a naked woman - maybe he removed his penis and balls by choice …


In mythology Set was castrated by Horus during their struggle for Kingship - but in my analysis Horus was a phallic female - The transfer of phallic power from Set to Horus was probably more in line with the Amazon practice of father/daughter transfer of the “mes” in Sumeria - Innana got her phallus and balls from Enki her father …

A process that was universal in the penis caged world - and was carried over to Egyptian female over male sex: "We cut the castratus with our lances"

See: Eunuchs in Pharaonic Egypt
by Frans Jonckheere

“ … We know that the verb hms [female pelvis][side][bolt][knife], [female pelvis][side][chair back][knife], [female pelvis][bolt][knife] signifies generally: to remove by cutting. But when one finds hms combined with the word hm, designating the eunuch, it is obvious that we are justified in giving this act the more specialized sense of "to castrate." Thus when it is said, speaking of the king who punished Seth by emasculation: "The one who hms the castratus" -- castratus being conceived here as a future participle: the one about to be castrated -- one has the right to translate: "The one who castrates the castratus." Likewise, when it is exclaimed in the course of combat: "We hms the castratus with our lances" or literally: "We cut the castratus with our lances", in this phrase the expression "we cut" is necessarily equivalent to "we castrate."

Along with hms "to cut", which by extension therefore includes the meaning of "to castrate", we know of another verb written [seal and cord][knife], using the sign of the seal followed by the knife, and which follows the same development. We found it at Denderah and at Edfou. In the festival calendar of the temple at Edfou, we read: "On the first day of Épiphi, Seth is [seal and cord][knife] that day; his penis and testicles are placed..."; in the temple of Denderah, it states: "the unfortunate one (Seth) is [seal and cord][knife] by the knife". These are two indisputable allusions to castration, rendered by [seal and cord][knife]. The precise reading of this complex has provided the only cause for debate. Alliot who sees in the image of the seal, which is normally read sd3, a graphical whim for sd, renders [seal and cord][knife] as "to break into pieces". But since the context specifies that the broken pieces are comprised of the penis and testicles, is it excessive to give to sd the value of "to emasculate" when used under such circumstances? The same reasoning applies in a case where we adopt the opinion of Brugsch, who deems that [seal and cord][knife] must be read s'd, "to cut". Linked with the idea of a sexual mutilation, s'd, "to cut", can mean nothing other than "to castrate".

Hms, sd and s'd, which only by extension mean "to castrate", cannot be taken as professional terminology. Yet it is not appropriate, for all that, to conclude from the outset that there is no technical word defining the surgical act of emasculation. In fact, we know that castration has a designation of its own: it is the verb s'b. If we follow the Berlin Dictionary, it is only applicable to animals. But is this opinion incontestable when we have already observed that s'b may not be so far removed from the verb sbj, meaning "to circumsize", which for its part can only be applicable to men. May not fate one day place under our eyes a text which will attest that the specialized verb s'b = to castrate can be applied just as well to the human being as to the animal? … “

That’s probably the meaning of the Egyptian phrase above  "We cut the castratus with our lances" ! The phallus or “lance” was female in Egypt from Mut to Isis and Sekhmet-Min to Harpocrates and “castratus” was probably the universal penis cage ... and also Set and Osiris who both lost their phallus ...

The terracota Symplegma above - plate 1561 - is probably a late Roman Egyptian female phallus sex scene - the black African youth is wearing the Phrygian cap worn by the castrated Attis … The Cybele/Attis cult was the last cult of the Roman emperors - My guess is all penis locked young Roman noblemen had to submit to phallic Roman matrons representing the phallic Cybele or phallic Agdistis

- Boss lady roars! That’s the Nymph and dildo sex of the cult of Dionysus - and many other Roman cults like the Roman emperors Attis/Agditis cult … The penis locked Roman satyr and his horse tail was a horse to be ridden by phallic Roman matrons …


[I've altered the confusing transgender sexual terms below ... That's mostly male male sex - My focus is male female sex!]

“ … Agdistis  is a deity of Greek, Roman and Anatolian mythology who possesses both male and female sexual organs. She was closely associated with the Phrygian goddess Cybele.

Her androgyny was seen as a symbol of wild and uncontrollable nature. It was this trait that was considered threatening by the gods and ultimately led to her destruction.

There are at least two origin stories for Agdistis. According to Pausanias, Zeus unknowingly fathered Agdistis, a superhuman being who was both man and woman, with Gaia. In other versions, there was a rock called Agdo which Gaia slept upon. Zeus impregnated Gaia there, and she later gave birth to Agdistis.

The gods were afraid of the androgynous Agdistis. One god, Dionysus or Liber depending on the telling, put a sleeping draught in Agdistis' drinking well, and after Agdistis had fallen asleep, Dionysus tied her foot to her penis with a rope. When Agdistis awoke and stood up, she ripped her own penis off, castrating herself. The blood from this incident fell to the earth and an almond tree grew from where it landed.

Nana, daughter of a river-god Sangarius, was gathering fruit from this tree and stored some in her bosom, where they disappeared and made her pregnant with Atti. After giving birth to Attis, Nana abandoned him, and the infant was taken in by human foster-parents.

As an adult, Attis was of such extraordinary beauty that the now conventionally female Agdistis fell in love with him, despite being his blood father via almond. However, his foster parents intended him to become the husband of the daughter of the king of Pessinus, and he accordingly went to the Pessinian royal court.

At the moment when the marriage song commenced, Agdistis appeared in her full glory, and all the wedding guests were instantly driven mad, causing both Attis and the king of Pessinus to castrate themselves, and the bride to cut off her breasts. Agdistis then repented her deed and obtained from Zeus the promise that the body of Attis would not decompose.

This is the most popular account of an otherwise mysterious affair and the interpretation of this myth is often debated, especially how it relates to ancient gender changes and sexuality. Some tellers add geographic details: Pausanias mentions a hill in Phrygia named "Agdistis", at the foot of which Attis was reported to have been buried. … “ Wikipedia

" ... Agdistis then repented her deed and obtained from Zeus the promise that the body of Attis would not decompose. ... "

There's a void after the self castration of Attis - but the images are not minor - Attis in the 3rd century AD is pictured on Roman coins as a sun-god with the globe in his hands -

Not sure what that was about - but my "heiros gamos" of 1994 was a solar event - I still stare at the sun with not ill effects - Getting there was not a pleasant journey though - I was compelled to succumb to a volcanic disturbance in my psyche - I guess I went through a"cybele frenzy" right after law school - Without CG Jung that would have ended in a stroke - or worse ... I was experiencing physical events consistent with stroke as it was happening ...

It ended with a "snap" or a "crack" - then a pat on the back from a unseen female hand - and it was over ...

But there was no castration - my libido went up a great deal after that 2 or 3 day event in the summer of 1994. My guess is the "jinn" are Agdistis - they all have very large phalli which they are not shy to use on men!

“ …. AGDISTIS was an ancient Phrygian goddess. She was an hermaphroditic deity born when the Earth-Mother was accidentally impregnated by the sleeping Sky-God. The gods, in fear of the strange double-gendered being, castrated it and so creating the goddess Kybele (Cybele).

This story related by Pausanias was a Greek translation of the Phrygian myth in which the Phrygian sky-god is identified with Zeus. Since Kybele was usually identified by the Greeks with the goddess Rhea, it is somewhat curious that the writer names the sky-god father Zeus instead of Ouranos. “ Theoi


" ... AGDISTIS (Agdistis), a mythical being connected with the Phrygian. worship of Attes or Atys. Pausanias (vii. 17. § 5) relates the following story about Agdistis. On one occasion Zeus unwittingly begot by the Earth a superhuman being which was at once man and woman, and was called Agdistis. The gods dreaded it and unmanned it, and from its severed aidoia there grew up an almond-tree. Once when the daughter of the river-god Sangarius was gathering the fruit of this tree, she put some almonds into her bosom ; but here the almonds disappeared, and she became the mother of Attes, who was of such extraordinary beauty, that when he had grown up Agdistis fell in love with him. His relatives, however, destined him to become the husband of the daughter of the king of Pessinus, whither he went accordingly. But at the moment when the hymeneal song had commenced, Agdistis appeared, and Attes was seized by a fit of madness, in which he unmanned himself; the king who had given him his daughter did the same. Agdistis now repented her deed, and obtained from Zeus the promise that the body of Attes should not become decomposed or disappear. This is, says Pausanias, the most popular account of an otherwise mysterious affair, which is probably part of a symbolical worship of the creative powers of nature. A hill of the name of Agdistis in Phrygia, at the foot of which Attes was believed to be buried, is mentioned by Pausanias. (i. 4. § 5.) According to Hesychius (s. v.) and Strabo (xii. p. 567; comp. x. p. 469), Agdistis is the same as Cybele, who was worshipped at Pessinus under that name. A story somewhat different is given by Arnobius. (Adv. Gent. ix. 5. § 4 ; comp. Minuc. Felix, 21.)

Below is modern translation of the Messalina myth - In a penis locked Rome, I am sure the “She-wolf” Messalina was the phallus in the Roman Suburan brothels … That’s a hard image to digest, but the bronze Trojan fibula and the phallic Trojan goddesses Cybele and Aphrodite and Vesta and Isis and others mandate it!

Messalina was practicing "Nymph and dildo" sex - the right and expectation of all married and sexually free Roman women ..

Juvenal, Satire VI:114-135
Or Messalina?

“ … Are you worried by Eppia’s tricks, of a non-Imperial kind?
Take a look at the rivals of the gods; hear how Claudius
Suffered. When his wife, Messalina, knew he was asleep,
She would go about with no more than a maid for escort.
The Empress dared, at night, to wear the hood of a whore,
And she preferred a mat to her bed in the Palatine Palace.
Dressed in that way, with a blonde wig hiding her natural
Hair, she’d enter a brothel that stank of old soiled sheets,
And make an empty cubicle, her own; then sell herself,
Her nipples gilded, naked, taking She-Wolf for a name,
Displaying the belly you came from, noble Britannicus,
She’d flatter her clients on entry, and take their money.
Then lie there obligingly, delighting in every stroke.
Later on, when the pimp dismissed his girls, she’d leave
Reluctantly, waiting to quit her cubicle there, till the last
Possible time, her taut sex still burning, inflamed with lust,
Then she’d leave, exhausted by man, but not yet sated,
A disgusting creature with filthy face, soiled by the lamp’s
Black, taking her brothel-stench back to the Emperor’s bed.
Shall I speak of spells and love-potions too, poisons brewed,
And stepsons murdered? The sex do worse things, driven on
By the urgings of power: their crimes of lust are the least of it. … “

The phallic Roman "She-wolf" was Empress Messalina's code name in the Roman brothels - but was also a Roman archetype - Greek and Syrian Hetaireia set her free to indulge her lusts:

" ... The Floralia, first introduced about 238 B.C., had
a powerful influence in giving impetus to the spread of prostitution. The account of the origin of this festival, given by Lactantius, while no credence is to be placed in it, is very interesting. "When Flora, through the practice of prostitution, had come into great wealth, she made the people her heir,
and bequeathed a certain fund, the income of which was to be used to celebrate her birthday by the exhibition of
the games they call the Floralia" (Instit. Divin. xx, 6). In chapter x of the same book, he describes the manner in which they were celebrated: "They were solemnized with every form of licentiousness. For in addition to the freedom of speech that pours forth every obscenity, the prostitutes, at the importunities of the rabble, strip off their clothing and act as mimes in full view of the crowd, and this they continue until full satiety comes to the shameless lookers- on, holding their attention with their wriggling buttocks." Cato,the censor, objected to the latter part of this spectacle, but, with all his influence, he was never able to abolish it; the best he could do was to have the spectacle put off until he had left the theatre. ...

" ... The increase of wealth among the Romans, the spoils wrung from their victims as a portion of the price of defeat, the contact of the legions with the softer, more civilized, more sensuous races of Greece and Asia Minor, laid the foundations upon which the social evil was to rise above the city of the seven hills, and finally crush her.

... Scions of patrician families imbibed their lessons from
the skilled voluptuaries of Greece and the Levant and in their intrigues with the wantons of those climes, they learned to lavish wealth as a fine art. Upon their return to Rome they were but ill-pleased with the standard of entertainment offered by the ruder and less sophisticated native talent; they imported Greek and Syrian mistresses. 'Wealth increased, its message sped in every direction, and the corruption of the world was drawn into Italy as by a load-stone. The Roman matron had learned how to be a mother, the lesson of love was an unopened book; and, when the foreign hetairai poured into the city, and the struggle for supremacy began, she soon became aware of the disadvantage under which she contended. Her natural haughtiness had caused her to lose valuable time; pride,
and finally desperation drove her to attempt to outdo her foreign rivals; her native modesty became a thing of the past, her Roman initiative, unadorned by sophistication, was often but too successful in outdoing the Greek and Syrian wantons, but without the appearance of refinement which they always contrived to give to every caress of passion or avarice. They wooed fortune with an abandon that soon made them the objects of contempt in the eyes of their lords and masters. "She is chaste whom no man has solicited," said Ovid (Amor. i, 8, line 43). Martial, writing about ninety years later says: "Sophronius Rufus, long have I been searching the city through to find if there is ever a maid to say 'No'; there is not one." ... "

The Roman female phallus in a penis locked world was not content with monogamy as is reflected in the rich Latin trove of terms for the carnal girl and woman :

“ … There are few languages which are richer in pornographic terminology than the Latin.

Meretrix -- Nomus Marcellus has pointed out the difference between this class of prostitutes and the prostibula. "This is the difference betweena meretrix (harlot) and a prostibula (common strumpet): a meretrix is of a more honorable station and calling; for meretrices are so named a merendo (from earning wages) because they plied their calling only by night; possibly because they stand before the stabulum (stall) for gain both by day and night."
Prostibula -- She who stands in front of her cell or stall.
Proseda -- She who sits in front of her cell or stall. She who later became the Empress Theodora belonged to this class, if any credit is to be given to Procopius.
Nonariae -- She that is forbidden to appear before the ninth hour.
Mimae -- Mime players. They were almost invariably prostitutes.
Cymbalistriae -- Cymbal players. They were almost invariably prostitutes.
Ambubiae -- Singing girls. They were almost invariably prostitutes.
Citharistriae -- Harpists. They were almost invariably prostitutes.
Scortum -- A strumpet. Secrecy is implied, but the word has a broad usage.
Scorta erratica | Clandestine strumpets who were street walkers.
Secuteleia | Busturiae -- Tomb frequenters and hangers-on at funerals.
Copae -- Bar maids.
Delicatae -- Kept mistresses.
Famosae -- Soiled doves from respectable families.
Doris -- Harlots of great beauty. They wore no clothing.
AElicariae -- Bakers' girls.

Bonus scene: “Mystery”’s friend has a go from the rear: Heavy drowsiness after I stopped - so I made another plate for the “jinn” …

Roman men were not free to indulge their lusts as bachelors - Marriage was required - the modern interpretation is of a need to produce new Romans - but my guess is the Roman she wolves needed to penis lock a man in order to become truly phallic … The bachelor life was reserved for the Amazon Roman matrons …:

"... In the character of the Roman there was but little of tenderness. The well-being of the state caused him his keenest anxiety. One of the laws of the twelve tables, the "Coelebes Prohibito," compelled the citizen of manly vigor to satisfy the promptings of nature in the arms of a lawful wife, and the tax on bachelors is as ancient as the times of Furius Camillus. "There was an ancient law among the Romans," says Dion Cassius, lib. xliii, "which forbade bachelors, after the age of twenty-five, to enjoy equal political rights with married men. The old Romans had passed this law in hope that, in this way, the city of Rome, and the Provinces of the Roman Empire as well, might be insured an abundant population." The increase, under the Emperors, of the number of laws dealing with sex is an accurate mirror of conditions as they altered and grew worse. The "Jus Trium Librorum," under the empire, a privilege enjoyed by those who had three legitimate children, consisting, as it did, of permission to fill a public office before the twenty-fifth year of one's age, and in freedom from personal burdens, must have had its origin in the grave apprehensions for the future, felt by those in power. The fact that this right was sometimes conferred upon those who were not legally entitled to benefit by it, makes no difference in this inference. ... "

Bluegreen Greek Egyptian faience ptah phallus amulet

“ … Description: Egypt, Third Intermediate Period to Late Dynastic Period, ca. 1070 to 332 BCE. This is a small faience amulet that is guaranteed to spark discussion. It shows a seated figure of Ptah, the creator god who existed before all things and thought the world into existence. Here, he has a disproportionately large phallus that forms the bulk of the amulet, obviously suggesting fertility, but also giving off a slightly cheeky air. Size: 1.8" L x 0.5" W x 1" H (4.6 cm x 1.3 cm x 2.5 cm)

Provenance: Ex - Private LA County collection, acquired before 1990 … “ Artemis Gallery

Ptah was the penis locked pharaoh - and all Egyptian men below him - That was the system inherited by the Romans - no bachelors and no free male penis! In Rome the lock went on at the start of puberty and came off at 25 when the Roman was expected to marry - hand over his penis lock to his wife - and to enter public service …

That phallic energy was transferred to women and was the cause of the phallic Roman “she wolf” - My guess is male Djed pillars began to form spontaneously from the mid 20’s onward - and in some cases the “Cybele frenzy” broke out when the balls and even penis had to be removed to prevent insanity ...

That’s an erect Priapus - Or really the “hare” of a Priapus - the erect phallus is locked by the bronze fibula …

The Egyptian version is the erect Ptah above - Egyptian women exposed their vulva's to the Ptah bull - and probably to the king too and Egyptian men in order to enhance the Ptah virility ...


Roman women demanded the "hare" - the actual sex was probably not regular though - the female phallus in the locked Roman male's rear was probably much more common:

" ... Finding myself vigorous in mind and body when I arose next morning, I went down to the same clump of plane trees, though I dreaded the spot as one of evil omen, and commenced to wait for Chrysis to lead me on my way. I took a short stroll and had just seated myself where I had sat the day before, when she came under the trees, leading a little old woman by the hand. "Well, Mr. Squeamish," she chirped, when she had greeted me, "have you recovered your appetite?" In the meantime, the old hag: A wine-soaked crone with twitching lips brought out a twisted hank of different colored yarns and put it about my neck; she then kneaded dust and spittle and, dipping her middle finger into the mixture, she crossed my forehead with it, in spite of my protests.

As long as
life remains,
there's hope;
Thou rustic God,
oh hear
our prayer,
Great Priapus,
I thee invoke,
Temper our arms
to dare!

When she had made an end of this incantation she ordered me to spit three times, and three times to drop stones into my bosom, each stone she wrapped up in purple after she had muttered charms over it; then, directing her hands to
my privates, she commenced to try out my virility. Quicker than thought the nerves responded to the summons, filling the crone's hand with an enormous erection! Skipping for joy, "Look, Chrysis, look," she cried out, "see what a hare I've started, for someone else to course!" ... "

Bluegreen Greek Egyptian faience Amulet of Baboon-shaped Thot Holding a Wedjat Eye, 332–30 B.C, 5.1 × 2.6 cm, Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest , Hungary


One of the gifts of the Djed pillar - the opening of the inner eye - and the dreamspace …

The large baboon phallus was for female virility only in Egypt - from the bluegreen amulets above the Egyptian male phallus was tightly locked up ...


“ … The Eye of Horus, wedjat eye or udjat eye is a concept and symbol in ancient Egyptian religion that represents well-being, healing, and protection. It derives from the mythical conflict between the god Horus with his rival Set, in which Set tore out or destroyed one or both of Horus's eyes and the eye was subsequently healed or returned to Horus with the assistance of another deity, such as Thoth. Horus subsequently offered the eye to his deceased father Osiris, and its revitalizing power sustained Osiris in the afterlife. The Eye of Horus was thus equated with funerary offerings, as well as with all the offerings given to deities in temple ritual. It could also represent other concepts, such as the moon, whose waxing and waning was likened to the injury and restoration of the eye.

The Eye of Horus symbol, a stylized eye with distinctive markings, was believed to have protective magical power and appeared frequently in ancient Egyptian art. It was one of the most common motifs for amulets, remaining in use from the Old Kingdom (c. 2686–2181 BC) to the Roman period (30 BC – 641 AD). Pairs of Horus eyes were painted on coffins during the First Intermediate Period (c. 2181–2055 BC) and Middle Kingdom (c. 2055–1650 BC). Other contexts where the symbol appeared include on carved stone stelae and on the bows of boats. To some extent the symbol was adopted by the people of regions neighboring Egypt, such as Syria, Canaan, and especially Nubia.

The eye symbol was also rendered as a hieroglyph .... Egyptologists have long believed that hieroglyphs representing pieces of the symbol stand for fractions in ancient Egyptian mathematics, although this hypothesis has been challenged. … “ Wikipedia

Messalina was not the only she wolf Roman empress who worked Roman men in the Suburan brothels - Empress Theodora was rumored to have been a “Proseda”:

“Proseda -- She who sits in front of her cell or stall. She who later became the Empress Theodora belonged to this class, if any credit is to be given to Procopius.”

Discussion on Caius Petronius’ Satyricon


“ … Now for a time Theodora, being immature, was quite unable to sleep with a man or to have a woman's kind of intercourse with one, yet she did engage in intercourse of a masculine type of lewdness with the wretches, slaves though they were, who, following their masters to the theatre, incidentally took advantage of the opportunity afforded them to carry on this monstrous business, and she spent much time in the brothel in this unnatural traffic of the body. … “

Chapter 9: Procopius, The Anecdota, or Secret History


Theodora, an athlete and courtesan 20 years younger than the Byzantine emperor Justinian nevertheless ruled as his equal not his consort - But in the Roman context that really meant she was his Augusta and the custodian of his phallus in the ancient Egyptian tradition of father/ daughter marriage - or a classic Greek Hetaireia /Tribade which all penis locked Greek noblemen submitted to in old age ...


“ … Theodora reigned as empress of the Byzantine Empire alongside her husband, Emperor Justinian I, from 527 CE until her death in 548 CE. Rising from a humble background and overcoming the prejudices of her somewhat disreputable early career as an actress, Theodora would marry Justinian (r. 527-565 CE) in 525 CE and they would rule together in a golden period of Byzantine history. Portrayed by contemporary writers as scheming, unprincipled, and immoral, the Empress, nevertheless, was also seen as a valuable support to the Emperor, and her direct involvement in state affairs made her one of the most powerful women ever seen in Byzantium.

Theodora was born in c. 497 CE, the daughter of a bear-keeper called Akakios who worked for the Hippodrome of Constantinople. The 6th-century CE Byzantine historian Procopius of Caesarea states in his Secret History (Anekdota) that Theodora earned her living, like her mother before her, as an actress, which meant performing in the Hippodrome as an acrobat, dancer, and stripper. Theodora was said to have had one particularly lurid routine involving geese. By implication, considering the common association of the two professions at the time, she was also a courtesan. Procopius would have us believe an especially popular and lustful one, at that.
Procopius' Secret History, is, though, regarded by many as an outrageous gossip piece with a few facts thrown in for authenticity. The writer's attitude to both Justinian and Theodora is plainly that they were the worst thing ever to happen to the Byzantine Empire (in contrast to the official works he wrote under Justinian's patronage which are suitably laudatory of the emperor's achievements in war and architecture especially). Procopius also had it in for Antonina, the wife of Belisarius (Justinian's most talented general), and she is portrayed as constantly scheming with Theodora to create damaging palace intrigues. It is perhaps important to consider, too, that our knowledge of Theodora only comes from male authors and a woman performing any other role than the traditionally submissive one in Byzantine society was bound to be, at best, disapproved of and, at worst, outright demonised.

Before she married Justinian, the nephew of Emperor Justin (r. 518-527 CE), in 525 CE, Theodora left the sands of the Hippodrome to travel to North Africa as the mistress of a medium-level civil servant. After the relationship broke up, she made her way back home via Alexandria where she may have converted to Christianity.

The marriage between such a lowly figure as Theodora and a future emperor was an odd rags-to-riches one, but there was a tradition in the Byzantine court for emperors to marry the winners of beauty contests organised for that purpose. The entrants to such contests could come from lower classes and from far away provinces so such mismatches were not unheard of. The lowly status of Theodora was not ignored by everyone, and one particularly passionate opponent was Empress Lupicina Euphemia, indeed, her death seems to have removed the foremost obstacle to the marriage. Justin I even went so far as to amend the laws (senators, which Justinian was, could not marry actresses) in order to permit the marriage and to legitimise Theodora's illegitimate daughter. Procopius also claims there was an illegitimate son, too, but no other sources substantiate this.

The Empress, 20 years younger than her husband, is described by Procopius as being short but attractive, a stickler for court ceremony, and a lover of luxury. Theodora was crowned as empress in the same coronation ceremony as her husband on 1 April 527 CE. Justinian had insisted his wife be crowned as his equal and not as his consort. The pair also matched each other in intelligence, ambition, and energy, and with their lavish coronation in the Hagia Sophia, they seemed to herald a new era for the Byzantine Empire and its people. …. “

Two large Greek Egyptian dildo’s - certainly for use by phallic Greek Egyptian women in the rears of penis locked Greek Egyptian men ...

Those dildo's are missing, but were a basic part of the ancient Greek woman's life - she received an eight inch dildo from her father as part of her marriage ceremony - the "unbuckling" of her girdle of Hippolyta ...


“ … The Temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double temple in the town of Kom Ombo in Aswan Governorate, Upper Egypt. It was constructed during the Ptolemaic dynasty, 180–47 BC …

The building is unique because its 'double' design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods. The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu.

 Meanwhile, the northern part of the temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris ("Horus the Elder"), along "with Tasenetnofret (the Good Sister, a special form of Hathor or Tefnet/Tefnut) and Panebtawy (Lord of the Two Lands)."

… The texts and reliefs in the temple refer to cultic liturgies which were similar to those from that time period. The temple itself had a specific theology. The characters invoked the gods of Kom Ombo and their legend. Two themes were present in this temple: the universalist theme and the local theme. The two combine to form the theology of this temple. A temple was already built in the New Kingdom to honor these gods, however, this site gained in importance during the Ptolemaic Kingdom. Little remains of the New Kingdom temple. The existing temple was begun by Ptolemy VI Philometor (180–145 BC) at the beginning of his reign and added to by other Ptolemies, most notably Ptolemy XIII Theos Philopator (51–47 BC), who built the inner and outer hypostyles. The scene on the inner face of the rear wall of the temple is of particular interest, and "probably represents a set of surgical instruments." … “ Wikipedia

“ … Now for a time Theodora, being immature, was quite unable to sleep with a man or to have a woman's kind of intercourse with one, yet she did engage in intercourse of a masculine type of lewdness with the wretches, slaves though they were, who, following their masters to the theatre, incidentally took advantage of the opportunity afforded them to carry on this monstrous business, and she spent much time in the brothel in this unnatural traffic of the body. 

But as soon as she came of age and was at last mature, she joined the women of the stage and straightway became a courtesan, of the sort whom men of ancient times used to call "infantry." For she was neither a flute-player nor a harpist, nay, she had not even acquired skill in the dance, but she sold her youthful beauty to those who chanced to come along, plying her trade with practically her whole body.  Later on she was associated with the actors in all the work of the theatre, and she shared their performances with them, playing up to their buffoonish acts intended to raise a laugh. For she was unusually clever and full of gibes, and she immediately became admired for this sort of thing.  For the girl had not a particle of modesty, nor did any man ever see her embarrassed, but she undertook shameless services without the least hesitation, and she was the sort of a person who, for instance, when being flogged or beaten over the head, would crack a joke over it and burst into a loud laugh; and she would undress and exhibit to any who chanced along both her front and her rear naked, parts which rightly should be unseen by men and hidden from them.

And as she wantoned with her lovers, she always kept bantering them, and by toying with new devices in intercourse, she always succeeded in winning the hearts of the licentious to her; for she did not even expect that the approach should be made by the man she was with, but on the contrary she herself, with wanton jests and with clownish posturing with her hips, would tempt all who came along, especially if they were beardless youths.  Indeed there was never anyone such a slave to pleasure in all forms; for many a time she would go to a community dinner with ten youths or even more, all of exceptional bodily vigor who had made a business of fornication, and she would lie with all her banquet companions the whole night long, and when they all were too exhausted to go on, she would go on to their attendants, thirty perhaps in number, and pair off with each one of them; yet even so she could not get enough of this wantonness. On one occasion she entered the house of one of the notables during the drinking, and they said that in the sight of all the banqueters she mounted to the projecting part of the banqueting couch where their feet lay, and there drew up her clothing in a shameless way, not hesitating to display her licentiousness.  And though she made use of three openings, she used to take Nature to task, complaining that it had not pierced her breasts with larger holes so that it might be possible for her to contrive another method of copulation there.  And though she was pregnant many times, yet practically always she was able to contrive to bring about an abortion immediately.

And often even in the theatre, before the eyes of the whole people, she stripped off her clothing and moved about naked through their midst, having only a girdle about her private parts and her groins, not, however, that she was ashamed to display these too to the populace, but because no person is permitted to enter there entirely naked, but must have at least a girdle about the groins.  Clothed in this manner, she sprawled out and lay on her back on the ground. And some slaves, whose duty this was, sprinkled grains of barley over her private parts, and geese, which happened to have been provided for this very purpose, picked them off with their beaks, one by one, and ate them.  And when she got up, she not only did not blush, but even acted as if she  took pride in this strange performance. For she was not merely shameless herself, but also a contriver of shameless deeds above all others.  And it was a common thing for her to undress and stand in the midst of the actors on the stage, now straining her body backwards and now trying to penetrate the hinder parts both of those who had consorted with her and those who had not yet done so, running through with pride the exercises of the only wrestling school to which she was accustomed. And she treated her own body with such utter wantonness that she seemed to have her privates not where Nature had placed them in other women, but in her face! Now those who had intimacy with her immediately made it clear by that very fact that they were not having intercourse according to the laws of Nature; and all the more respectable people who chanced upon her in the market-place would turn aside and retreat in haste, lest they should touch any of the woman's garments and so seem to have partaken of this pollution.  For she was, to those who saw her, particularly early in the day, a bird of foul omen. On the other hand, she was accustomed to storm most savagely at all times against the women who were her fellow-performers; for she was a very envious and spiteful creature.

 Later she was following in the train of Hecebolus, a Tyrian, who had taken over the administration of Pentapolis, serving him in the most shameful capacity; but she gave some offence to the man and was driven thence with all speed; consequently it came about that she was at a loss for the necessities of life, which she proceeded to provide in her usual way, putting her body to work at its unlawful traffic. She first went to Alexandria;  later, after making the round of the whole East, she made her way back to Byzantium, plying her trade in each city (a trade which a man could not call by name, I think, without forfeiting forever the compassion of God), as if Heaven could not bear that any spot should be unacquainted with the wantonness of Theodora. Thus was this woman born and reared and thus had she become infamous in the eyes both of many common women and of all mankind.  

But when she came back to Byzantium once more, Justinian conceived for her an overpowering love; and at first he knew her as a mistress, though he did advance her to the rank of the Patricians.  Theodora accordingly succeeded at once in acquiring extraordinary influence and a fairly large fortune. For she seemed to the man the sweetest thing in the world, as is wont to happen with lovers who love extravagantly, and he was fain to bestow upon his beloved all favours and all money.  And the State became fuel for this love. … “

18th dynasty Amulet of god Thoth as a Baboon


Bluegreen faience Thoth as Baboon god playing music

That’s a higher power that may be able to resolve the confusion and aggression of misdirected eros! - What is pure pleasure to me, is something quite different for most humans - Eros causes obsession, fixation even derangement in most human beings ...


“ … This deep blue faience amulet pendant represents the god Thot as a baboon playing music. Dynasty 18 (1500-1360 BC). This item was formerly part of Lord Kitchener’s collection.

Amulets are objects generally kept on the person that are believed to confer some benefit to the wearer. While turn of the century archeologist Flinders Petrie (1914) enraged that “the belief in the magic effect of inanimate objects on the course of events is one of the lower stages of the human mind in seeking for principles of natural action. . .”, he had to concede that the use of amulets, talismans, and charms is very ingrained in many cultures to the present day. Many of us use lucky pens and wear religious medals without believing literally in their powers to affect our lives. But we still use them. They help us muster the confidence we need in times of self doubt. They empower us to dare, to believe in ourselves, to heal ourselves. Egyptians may have felt the same way. They used amulets on themselves and on their dead. Egyptians also seem to have had a passion for jewelry, and amulets were a good excuse to wear more jewelry.

Egyptians created an astonishing variety of amulets. The Dendera Amulets List, engraved on the thickness of a temple doorway, shows 104 different amulets for funerary use. The MacGregor Papyrus shows and names each one (Andrews 1994:7). Petrie described some 270 kinds of amulets in his 1914 monograph on the subject, and yet it was published before the excavation of many sites rich in amulets! He devised a classification system which, for all its flaws, is useful and still stands as no worse than any devised since to put order in that which defies classification: “The various ascertained meanings may be completely put in order under five great classes… (I) the amulets of Similars which are for influencing similar parts, or functions, or occurrences, for the wearer; (II) the amulets of Powers, for conferring powers and capacities, especially upon the dead; (III) the amulets of Property, which are entirely derived from the funeral offerings, and are thus peculiar to Egypt; (IV) the amulets for Protection, such as charms and curative amulets; (V) the figures of Gods, connected with the worship of the gods and their functions… Our classes then are here called amulets of
Similars, or Homopoeic.
Powers or Dynatic.
Property or Ktematic.
Protection or Phylactic.
Gods or Theophoric.”
(Petrie 1914:6 #17)

The evolution of amulets follows a fairly logical path. The first amulets were natural objects such as shells, and symbolically charged body parts of animals, such as claws from birds of prey. Then, still in predynastic times, we find figurines of significant animals, such as the hippopotamus, falcon, and jackal. Through the Old Kingdom, there was a development of animal forms with increasing levels of sophistication, and by the middle of the Old Kingdom we find the abstract symbolic subjects (such as the Ankh (sign meaning “life”), the Udjat eye of Horus, the Djed pillar, and the scarab) which remain some of the most emblematic symbols of Egyptian culture. During the First Intermediate Period we find amulets representing human body parts (ear, tongue, hand, arm, phallus, leg, heart...). The Middle Kingdom expanded the whole range of objects and gave the scarab its final form. But despite this considerable repertoire, amulets representing major gods remained rare until the end of the New Kingdom, at which time they suddenly flourished, and became as a group the most prevalent type until the end of Dynastic history. (Andrews 1994)

Dynasty 18
In many ways, Dynasty 18 could be viewed as the golden age of the Egyptian Civilization. Spanning almost 280 years (1570-1293 BC), it ushered in the New Kingdom by a return to a powerful, monolithic Egyptian nation unified by a heavily centralized government under the undivided control of the king.

Egypt’s dominions expanded to include territory rife with natural resources; this wealth of resources fueled Egypt’s economy to unprecedented levels; the economic activity prompted the development of international trade and diplomacy; cultural and technological exchanges, together with spreading wealth, yielded a blossoming of the arts, and a widespread refinement of the Egyptian culture.

It would be unfair, if not untrue, to suggest that the achievements of Dynasty 18 were greater than those of, say, Dynasty 12 in the Middle Kingdom, or Dynasty 3 in the Old Kingdom. But the sheer volume of exquisite material goods produced and preserved from that period, the tantalizing political intrigues and mysteries of its controversial monarchs (such as Queen Hatshepsut and King Akhenaten), and the comparatively extensive written record (both from within and without Egypt), cannot help but make Egypt’s Dynasty 18 a most fascinating period of human history.

Founded by King Ahmose, who reclaimed the Delta from the Hyksos, Dynasty 18 saw some of the most enlightened monarchs of Egypt’s history. Blending the unwavering projection of military power with the development of social policies and the shepherding of culture, they left an indelible mark on their civilization. After a long period of prosperity and stability under a succession of kings named Tuthmosis and Amenhotep (and the great queen Hatshepsut), the dynasty stumbled when Amenhotep IV attempted to change just about everything about Egyptian culture: under his new name Akhenaten, he left the old capital and built a new one, abandoned Egypt’s traditional gods and created a new monotheistic cult, abandoned Egypt’s established artistic conventions and fostered a new, disturbingly realistic, aesthetic canon. Too much, too fast, Akhenaten’s reforms were soon undone. His capital was abandoned, his monuments destroyed, and records of his reign meticulously expunged. Turning a new page, his successor Tutankhaten soon changed his name to Tutankhamun. The Dynasty never regained its luster, and soon made way for a new line of rulers emerging from the ranks of the military: the Ramessids. … “ virtual-egyptian-museum

And in Sumeria:

“ … Sacred sexual intercourse is thought to have been common in the Ancient Near East  as a form of "Sacred Marriage" or hieros gamos between the kings of a Sumerian city-state and the High Priestesses of Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of love, fertility and warfare. Along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers there were many shrines and temples dedicated to Inanna. The temple of Eanna, meaning "house of heaven" in Uruk  was the greatest of these. The temple housed Naditu, priestesses of the goddess. The high priestess would choose for her bed a young man who represented the shepherd Dumuzid, consort of Inanna, in a hieros gamos celebrated during the annual Duku ceremony, just before Invisible Moon, with the autumn Equinox (Autumnal Zag-mu Festival). … “ Wikipedia

Roman women made a sport of hunting men for sex. In this scene from the Satyricon Philanis complains of losing one of her lovers to her younger sister who she took to dinner with her. Her sister shows up almost naked and helps herself to the "apples" of the young man - who in the Roman tradition was certainly penis caged :

" ... Then Pamphilus an apple broke,
And at her bosom aim'd the stroke ... "

As yesterday I went to dine
With Pamphilus, a swain of mine,
I took my sister, little heeding
The net I for myself was spreading
Though many circumstances led
To prove she'd mischief in her head.
For first her dress in every part
Was studied with the nicest art
Deck'd out with necklaces and rings,
And twenty other foolish things;
And she had curl'd and bound her hair
With more than ordinary care
And then, to show her youth the more,
A light, transparent robe she wore --
From head to heel she seemed t'admire
In raptures all her fine attire:
And often turn'd aside to view
If others gazed with rapture too.
At dinner, grown more bold and free,
She parted Pamphilus and me;
For veering round unheard, unseen,
She slily drew her chair between.
Then with alluring, am'rous smiles
And nods and other wanton wiles,
The unsuspecting youth insnared,
And rivall'd me in his regard. --
Next she affectedly would sip
The liquor that had touched his lip.
He, whose whole thoughts to love incline,
And heated with th' enliv'ning wine,
With interest repaid her glances,
And answer'd all her kind advances.
Thus sip they from the goblet's brink
Each other's kisses while they drink;
Which with the sparkling wine combin'd,
Quick passage to the heart did find.
Then Pamphilus an apple broke,
And at her bosom aim'd the stroke,
While she the fragment kiss'd and press'd,
And hid it wanton in her breast.
But I, be sure, was in amaze,
To see my sister's artful ways:
"These are returns," I said, "quite fit
To me, who nursed you when a chit.
For shame, lay by this envious art;
Is this to act a sister's part?"
But vain were words, entreaties vain,
The crafty witch secured my swain.
By heavens, my sister does me wrong;
But oh! she shall not triumph long.
Well Venus knows I'm not in fault
'Twas she who gave the first assault
And since our peace her treach'ry broke,
Let me return her stroke for stroke.
She'll quickly feel, and to her cost,
Not all their fire my eyes have lost
And soon with grief shall she resign
Six of her swains for one of mine."

"You villain, are you so brazen that you can speak?" she shrieked. "Don't you know what a serious crime you've committed? You have slaughtered the delight of Priapus, a goose, the very darling of married women! And for fear you think that nothing serious has happened, if the magistrates find this out you'll go to the cross! Until this day my dwelling has been inviolate and you have polluted it with blood! You have conducted yourself in such a manner that any enemy I have can turn me out of the priesthood!"

She spoke, and from her trembling head she tore the snow-white hair and scratched her cheeks: her eyes shed floods of tears.

As when
a torrent headlong 
rushes down
the valleys drear,

Its icy fetters 
gone when 
Spring appears,

And strikes 
the frozen shackles 
from rejuvenated earth

So down her face 
the tears 
in torrents swept

And wracking sobs 
convulsed her
as she wept.

"Please don't make such a fuss," I said, "I'll give you an ostrich in place of your goose!" While she sat upon the cot and, to my stupefaction, bewailed the death of the goose, Proselenos came in with the materials for the sacrifice. Seeing the dead goose and inquiring the cause of her grief, she herself commenced to weep more violently still and to commiserate me, as if I had slain my own father, instead of a public goose. 

Growing tired of this nonsense at last,

"See here," said I, "could I not purchase immunity for a price, even though I had assaulted you'? Even though I had murdered a man? Look here! I'm laying down two gold pieces, you can buy both gods and geese with them!"

"Forgive me, young man," said Oenothea, when she caught sight of the gold, "I am anxious upon your account; that is a proof of love, not of malignity. Let us take such precautions that not a soul will find this out. As for you, pray to the gods to forgive your sacrilege!"

The rich man can sail in a favoring gale

And snap out his course 
at his pleasure;

A Dance espouse,
no Acrisius will rail,

His credence 
by hers he will measure;

Write verse,
or declaim; 
snap the finger 
of scorn

At the world,
yet still win 
all his cases,

The rabble will drink in his words 
with concern

When a Cato austere it displaces.

At law, his "not proven,"
or "proved,"
he can have

With Servius or Labeo vieing;  

With gold at command anything
he may crave
Is his
without asking or sighing.

The universe bows 
at his slightest behest,

For Jove is a prisoner
 in his treasure chest.

In the meantime, she scurried around and put a jar of wine under my hands and, when my fingers had all been spread out evenly, she purified them with leeks and parsley.

Then, muttering incantations, she threw hazel-nuts into the wine and drew her conclusions as they sank or floated; but she did not hoodwink me, for those with empty shells, no kernel and full of air, would of course float, while those that were heavy and full of sound kernel would sink to the bottom. 

She then turned her attention to the goose, and, cutting open the breast, she drew out a very fat liver from which she foretold my future.

Then, for fear any trace of the crime should remain, she cut the whole goose up, stuck the pieces upon spits, and served up a very delectable dinner for me, whom, but a moment before, she had herself condemned to death, in her own words!

Meanwhile, cups of unmixed wine went merrily around (and the crones greedily devoured the goose which they had but so lately lamented. When the last morsel had disappeared, Oenothea, half-drunk by this time, looked at me and said, "We must now go through with the mysteries, so that you may get back your virility."

As she said this Oenothea brought out a leathern dildo which, when she had smeared it with oil, ground pepper, and pounded nettle seed, she commenced to force, little by little, up my anus.

The merciless old virago then anointed 
the insides of my thighs with the same decoction; 
finally mixing nasturtium juice with elixir of southern wood, she gave my genitals a bath and, picking up a bunch of green nettles, she commenced to strike me gently all over my belly below the navel. 

The nettles stung me horribly and I
 suddenly took to my heels, with the old hags in full pursuit. Although they were befuddled with wine and lust 
they followed the right road and chased me through several wards, screaming "Stop thief."
I made good my escape, however, although every toe was bleeding 
as the result of my headlong flight.

I got home as quickly as I could and, worn out with fatigue, I sought my couch, but I could not snatch a wink of sleep for the evil adventures which had befallen me kept running through my brain and, brooding upon them, I came to the conclusion that no one could be so abjectly unfortunate. .... "

Garden of Priapus - 1702

Leggy newcomer and a restrained and penis locked regular dude … Not as sweaty as the trans scene - Trans and the female phallus is sweaty like black and the female phallus - is my guess …


The priestess of Priapus in the Satryicon clearly suggests that the “mysteries” involved the female phallus - my guess is a phallic goddess like Demeter of her daughter Isis Aphrodite was being invoked by the  High Priestess at the midnight fires of the  Eleusinian Mysteries:

 “When the last morsel had disappeared, Oenothea, half-drunk by this time, looked at me and said, "We must now go through with the mysteries, so that you may get back your virility."
As she said this Oenothea brought out a leathern dildo which, when she had smeared it with oil, ground pepper, and pounded nettle seed, she commenced to force, little by little, up my anus.”

Caius Petronius


“ … In Attica, Hierophant was the title of the chief priest at the Eleusinian Mysteries. It was an office inherited within the Philaidae or Eumolpidae families. The office of Hierophant, High Priestess and Dadouchousa Priestess were all inherited within the Philaidae or Eumolpidae families, and the Hierophant and the High Priestess were of equal rank. It was the task of the High Priestess to impersonate the roles of the goddesses Demeter and Persephone in the enactment during the Mysteries.

Eunapius and Vettius Agorius Praetextatus are notable examples. … “ Wikipedia

C. Kerenyi cites a Christian report that the Hierophant was penis restrained or “diminished” like an ancient singer - but then disputes this report… However the large number of phallic votives from the ancient world makes it clear that the penis was restrained in large numbers - In Rome the entire upper class took the Fibula at puberty and were locked in it until marriage age at 25

More leggy newcomer and a restrained and penis locked regular dude - thats the Sekhmet - Min lions roar! The whole of Egypt was penis locked ...


To Herodotus Egyptians had upside down sexual roles - For example, the women traded outside the home, while men stayed home weaving - The women urinated standing up, while the men urinated sitting down - And women were compelled to support their families, while men were supported or “kept” by women … Herodotus also says Egyptians circumsized as opposed to the rest of the world that did not ... My guess is that was for the priests only though ...

Men urinating sitting down is an easy puzzle to solve - The Egyptian penis was tightly locked - almost a vagina - as the bluegreen faience votives above show. The women on the other hand had a tradition of open and standing up vulva display - as in the festival of Bubastis … Women supporting their families means property was passed through matriarchal lines … The priesthood was the domain of men - and was supported financially by women - they way some conservative Jewish sects still do today …

“ … Egyptian customs

[2.35] About Egypt I shall have a great deal to relate because of the number of remarkable things which the country contains, and because of the fact that more monuments which beggar description are to be found there than anywhere else in the world. That is reason enough for my dwelling on it at greater length. Not only is the Egyptian climate peculiar to their country, and the Nile different in its behavior from other rivers elsewhere, but the Egyptians themselves in their manners and customs seem to have reversed the ordinary practices of mankind.

For instance, women attend market and are employed in trade, while men stay at home and do the weaving. In weaving the normal way is to work the threads of the weft upwards, but the Egyptians work them downwards. Men in Egypt carry loads on their heads, women on their shoulders; women pass water standing up, men sitting down. To ease themselves they go indoors, but eat outside in the streets, on the theory that what is unseemly but necessary should be done in private, and what is not unseemly should be done openly.

No woman holds priestly office, either in the service of goddess or god; only men are priests in both cases. Sons are under no compulsion to support their parents if they do not wish to do so, but daughters must, whether they wish it or not. Elsewhere priests grow their hair long; in Egypt they shave their heads. 

[2.36] In other nations the relatives of the deceased in time of mourning cut their hair, but the Egyptians, who shave at all other times, mark a death by letting the hair grow both on head and chin. They live with their animals - unlike the rest of the world, who live apart from them. Other men live on wheat and barley, but any Egyptian who does so is blamed for it, their bread being made from spelt, or Zea as some call it.

Dough they knead with their feet, but clay with their hands - and even handle dung. They practice circumcision, while men of other nations (except those who have learnt from Egypt) leave their private parts as nature made them. Men in Egypt have two garments each, women only one. The ordinary practice at sea is to make sheets fast to ring-bolts fitted outboard; the Egyptians fit them inboard. In writing or calculating, instead of going, like the Greeks, from left to right, the Egyptians go from right to left - and obstinately maintain that theirs is the dexterous method, ours being left-handed and awkward. They have two sorts of writing, the sacred and the common.  … “ Herodotus - translation by Aubrey de Sélincourt at livius

Herodotus was not being fully honest about sex roles - In the bedroom, - like in Egypt and Sumeria - upper class penis locked Greek men were eromenos or passives to erastes or sexualy dominant Tribades ... The secret Greek model was the High priestess of Eleusis and her penis locked Hierophant ....

And I'm sure like in Rome, once the Greek woman married, she began her polyandrous sexual adventures - Up until the time of the tribade Greek Queen Theodora in Byzantium, brothels and public baths and the public theatre were the domain of the tribade and the sexually voracious Greek matron ..."

For example on the Tribade Queen Theodora of Byzantium c. 548 AD :

...Indeed there was never anyone such a slave to pleasure in all forms; for many a time she would go to a community dinner with ten youths or even more, all of exceptional bodily vigor who had made a business of fornication, and she would lie with all her banquet companions the whole night long, and when they all were too exhausted to go on, she would go on to their attendants, thirty perhaps in number, and pair off with each one of them; yet even so she could not get enough of this wantonness. ....

The ideal Greek old age for men included a young and vigorous and phallic Tribade - Like the elderly Socrates and the Amazon Xanthippe 40 years his junior - Or Trojan princes like Hector and his young amazon wife Andromache

- Or Trojan kings Priam and Nestor and so on and so forth…Greek and Roman men like Martial did not like wasting vital semen … That's an indirect proof of the female phallus!

Sunshine for what is usually a midnight rite! I'm sure in Egypt this was a sunshine event too - as Herodotus mentions - Egyptian women passed water standing up - and Egyptian sculptures do not shy in revealing the nude female form and in particular the female vulva...

The Egyptian vulva - like the vulva of the Greek Baubo - was open, not hidden - The bluegreen vulva of Hathor for example brought the sun god Ra out of his depression when his standing daughter pressed her vulva up to his sleeping face ... Hathor them married Ra - or became the sun god's tribade in the classic Egyptian daughter over father sexual coupling ...

And the open display of the Egyptian vulva to penis caged men at the annual wine festival must have been a precursor to open daylight drunken female on male orgies ...

Tightly locked Greek Egyptian phallus - All sex was from the other end - or the phallus of the female avatars of Demeter and her daughter Persephone/Isis Aphrodite .

Egyptian men were so tightly locked, they urinated sitting down - Herodotus ... That makes no sense , but that's the Djed pillar - the phallic energy remained within the body - An energy shield !

This article assumes that this was a childs phallus - but I do not agree - that’s a tightly locked adult male !


“ …. Phallos, Phallus-shaped pendant with suspension hole
Material: Green glass paste
Provenance: Antikythera shipwreck. From the material retrieved in 1976
Date: 1st c. BC
Dimensions: H. 0.021 m
Inv. no: Athens, National Archaeological Museum, 30664
Exhibition Place:Temporary Exhibitions Wing, Room II

Usually made of faience or glass paste, phallus- shaped pendants were thought to have apotropaic properties. Talismans of this type were common in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt and in most Roman provinces. In fact, they were intended particularly for children. Similar pendants, usually dated to the 1st c. BC, have been found at Delos and Dura-Europos also dated to the 1st c. BC.

The pendant’s discovery in the shipwreck suggests that a young boy or girl slave may have been aboard the ship.The tradition of talismans began in Egypt, which is considered the home of magic. The great variety of Egyptian charms influenced the production of contemporary and later ones -from prehistoric Aegean pendants to Christian crosses.

Talismans were thought to protect against and intimidate evil spirits …” mykonosgreece


Pedophilia was certainly part of Greco-Roman life, but the role of the penis lock has been overlooked - It explains why the Roman and Greek sex object was the beardless male youth - who was lusted after by both men and women - Until 25 the Roman male was called a "lesbian boy" and not fully male because of the bronze fibula ...

- In this excerpt from a discussion of the Satyricon, women are just as lustful as men and shared the Roman baths with men and boys - A succesion of emperors were unable to ban mixed sex bathing ; The penis caged trojan male by custom defered to his wife and even daughter !

" ... We come now to the bathing establishments. Their history in every country is the same, in one respect: the spreading and fostering of prostitution and paederastia. Cicero (Pro Coelio) accuses Clodia of having deliberately chosen the site of her gardens with the purpose of having a look at the young fellows who came to the Tiber to swim.

Catullus (xxxiii) speaks of the cimaedi who haunt the bathing establishments: Suetonius (Tib. 43 and 44) records the desperate expedients to which Tiberius had recourse to regain his exhausted virility: the scene in Petronius (chap. 92).

Martial (lib. i, 24) "You invite no man but your bathing companion, Cotta, only the baths supply you with a guest. I used to wonder why you never invited me, now I know that you did not like the look of me naked." Juvenal (ix, 32 et seq.),

"Destiny rules over mankind; the parts concealed by the front of the tunic are controlled by the Fates; when Virro sees you naked and in burning and frequent letters presses his ardent suit, with lips foaming with desire; nothing will serve you so well as the unknown measure of a long member."

Lampridius (Heliogab. v), "At Rome, his principal concern was to have emissaries everywhere, charged with seeking out men with huge members; that they might bring them to him so that he could enjoy their impressive proportions."

The quotations given above furnish a sufficient commentary upon the bathing establishments and the reasons for lighting them. In happier times, they were badly lighted as the apertures were narrow and could admit but little light. Seneca (Epist. 86) describes the bath of Scipio: "In this bath of Scipio there were tiny chinks, rather than windows, cut through the stone wall so as to admit light without detriment to the shelter afforded; but men nowadays call them 'baths-for-night-moths.'"

Under the empire, however, the bathing establishments were open to the eye of the passer-by; lighted, as they were by immense windows. Seneca (Epist. 86), "But nowadays, any which are disposed in such a way as to let the sunlight enter all day long, through immense windows; men call baths-for-night-moths; if they are not sunburned as they wash, if they cannot look out on the fields and sea from the pavement. Sweet clean baths have been introduced, but the populace is only the more foul."

In former times, youth and age were not permitted to bathe together (Valer. Max. ii, 7.), women and men used the same establishments, but at different hours; later, however, promiscuous bathing was the order of the day and men and women came more and more to observe that precept,

"noscetur e naso quanta sit hasta viro," which Joan of Naples had always in mind. Long-nosed men were followed into the baths and were the recipients of admiration wherever they were. As luxury increased, these establishments were fitted up with cells and attendants of both sexes, skilled in massage, were always kept upon the premises, in the double capacity of masseurs and prostitutes (Martial, iii, 82, 13); (Juvenal, vi, 428), "the artful masseur presses the clitoris with his fingers and makes the upper part of his mistress thigh resound under his hands."

The aquarioli or water boys also included pandering in their tour of duty (Juvenal, Sat. vi, 331) "some water carrier will come, hired for the purpose," and many Roman ladies had their own slaves accompany them to the baths to assist in the toilette: (Martial, vii, 3.4) "a slave girt about the loins with a pouch of black leather stands by you whenever you are washed all over with warm water," here, the mistress is taking no chances, her rights are as carefully guarded as though the slave were infibulated in place of having his generous virility concealed within a leather pouch. (Claudianus, 18, 106) "he combed his mistress' hair, and often, when she bathed, naked, he would bring water, to his lady, in a silver ewer."

Several of the emperors attempted to correct these evils by executive order and legislation, Hadrian (Spartianus, Life of Hadrian, chap. 18) "he assigned separate baths for the two sexes"; Marcus Aurelius (Capitolinus, Life of Marcus Antoninus, chap. 23) "he abolished the mixed baths and restrained the loose habits of the Roman ladies and the young nobles," and Alexander Severus (Lampridius, Life of Alex. Severus, chap. 24.) "he forbade the opening of mixed baths at Rome, a practice which, though previously prohibited, Heliogabalus had allowed to be observed," but,notwithstanding their absolute authority, their efforts along those lines met with little better success than have those of more recent times.

The pages of Martial and Juvenal reek with the festering sores of the society of that period, but Charidemus and Hedylus still dishonor the cities of the modern world. Tatian, writing in the second century, says (Orat. ad Graecos): "paederastia is practiced by the barbarians generally, but is held in pre-eminent esteem by the Romans, who endeavor to get together troupes of boys, as it were of brood mares," and Justin Martyr (Apologia, 1), has this to say: "first, because we behold nearly all men seducing to fornication, not merely girls, but males also. And just as our fathers are spoken of as keeping herds of oxen,or goats, or sheep, or brood mares, so now they keep boys, solely for the purpose of shameful usage, treating them as females, or androgynes, and doing unspeakable acts. To such a pitch of pollution has the multitude throughout the whole people come!"

Leggy newcomer and beauty in large mentules working a locked slave outdoors … Beauty brought the slave as a mood lifter for the leggy newcomer …

The key around her neck is the penis lock ... A fetish today, but for thousands of years the norm in Egypt, Sumeria, Greece and Rome

Shot on location in Greece, I think - the home of the Tribades! They've been away since the end of Byzantium ... I am sure Constantinople was a Tribade ruled city ...

There is a golden statue of Constantine as the castrated Attis - the other side of that equation is the empress as the phallic Agdistis/Cybele ...

This article says the nude statue on the column of Constantine is probably Constantine as Apollo the sun god - but in the religious context of the 300’s AD the Roman sun god was the castrated Attis…

“ …. The Column of Constantine … is a monumental column built for Roman emperor Constantine the Great to commemorate the dedication of Constantinople on 11 May 330 AD. Built c. 328 AD, it is the oldest Constantinian monument to survive in Istanbul and stood in the centre of the Forum of Constantine. It occupies the second-highest hill of the seven hills of Constantine's Nova Roma, the erstwhile Byzantium, and was midway along the Mese odos, the ancient city's main thoroughfare.

The Turkish name Çemberlitas, from çemberli 'hooped' and tas 'stone', was applied after repairs by the Ottomans in c. 1515, who added iron reinforcing hoops to the shaft, and came to refer to the surrounding area.

The column stands at the point where Yeniçeriler Caddesi ('Street of the Janissaries') joined the Divan Yolu ('Road to the Divan'), the two streets connecting Sultanahmet Square with Beyazit Square and roughly following the course of the old Mese odos. The Roman street led eastward to the Augustaion, the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, the Baths of Zeuxippus, and the Chalke Gate of the Great Palace. To the west it led through the Forum of Theodosius to the Philadelphion and the walls of Constantinople. In Constantine's Forum itself the emperor established the original home of the Byzantine Senate. …

The column was dedicated on May 11, 330 AD, with a mixture of Christian and pagan ceremonies.

In Constantine's day the column was at the centre of the Forum of Constantine (today known as Çemberlitas Square), an oval forum situated outside the city walls in the vicinity of what may have been the west gate of Antoninia. On its erection, the column was 50 meters tall, constructed of several cylindrical porphyry blocks. The exact number of porphyry blocks is disputed, but common figures range from seven, up to as many as eleven.

The column was surmounted by a statue of Constantine, probably nude, in the figure of Apollo wearing a seven-point radiate crown and holding a spear and orb. Its appearance probably referred to the Colossus of Rhodes and to the Colossus of Nero in Rome; all resembled the solar deities Helios or Apollo. The orb was said to contain a fragment of the True Cross.  … “ Wikipedia

“… Numerous New Testament scholars encourage us to interpret the Apostle Paul’s letters in light of their historical and cultural context.  The authors of the complementarian text entitled, “Women in the Church, 3rd Edition,” have a very straightforward response; according to them, this context simply did not exist.  In their minds, Paul is not warning the early church about idol worship, mythology, false teaching, asceticism, prostitution, mandatory circumcision or other forms of ritual violence against men.  He is mainly, if not exclusively, concerned with protecting the church from “female authority.”

To see if these complementarians are correct, I’d like to check some of their claims against available historical evidence:

Claim #1, No cult prostitution in the Greco-Roman World

S.M. Baugh: “…there was no sacred prostitution in the Greco-Roman world” (Women in the Church, 3rd edition, p. 46).

The Evidence:

…Pompeius Trogus, 1st century B.C. historian:“The Cypriots send their young women before marriage to the seashore to get money by prostitution.”  This is a reference to the prostitution associated with sanctuary of Aphrodite at Paleopaphos. (as cited in Justin, Epitome of History 18.5)

Strabo, 1st century A.D. historian:“Now the sacred rites of the Persians, one and all, are held in honour by both the Medes and the Armenians; but those of Anaïtis are held in exceptional honour by the Armenians, who have built temples in her honour in different places, and especially in Acilisene. Here they dedicate to her service male and female slaves. This, indeed, is not a remarkable thing; but the most illustrious men of the tribe actually consecrate to her their daughters while maidens; and it is the custom for these first to be prostituted in the temple of the goddess for a long time and after this to be given in marriage; and no one disdains to live in wedlock with such a woman. Something of this kind is told also by Herodotus in his account of the Lydian women, who, one and all, he says, prostitute themselves.” (11.14.16)

At Corinth there were “more than 1000 sacred prostitutes whom both men and women dedicated to the goddess.” (8.6.20)

In Phrygia, where Rhea became identified with Cybele, she is said to have purified Dionysus, and to have taught him the mysteries (Apollod. iii. 5. § 1), and thus a Dionysiac element became amalgamated with the worship of Rhea. Demeter, moreover, the daughter of Rhea, is sometimes mentioned with all the attributes belonging to Rhea. (Eurip. Helen. 1304.) The confusion then became so great that the worship of the Cretan Rhea was confounded with that of the Phrygian mother of the gods, and that the orgies of Dionysus became interwoven with those of Cybele.” (Athen. xii. p. 553 ; Demosth. de Coron. p. 313)

“And again, ‘happy he who, blest man, initiated in the mystic rites, is pure in his life, ((lacuna)) who, preserving the righteous Orgia (Orgies) of the great mother Kybele (Cybele), and brandishing the thyrsos on high, and wreathed with ivy, doth worship Dionysos. Come, ye Bakkhai, come, ye Bakkhai, bringing down Bromios, god the child of god, out of the Phrygian mountains into the broad highways of Greece.’

And again . . . ‘the triple-crested Korybantes in their caverns invented this hide-stretched circlet [the tambourine], and blent its Bacchic revelry with the high-pitched, sweet-sounding breath of Phrygian flutes, and in Rhea’s hands placed its resounding noise, to accompany the shouts of the Bakkhai, and from Meter (Mother) Rhea frenzied Satyroi (Satyrs) obtained it and joined it to the choral dances of the Trieterides, in whom Dionysos takes delight.’” (Geography 10. 3. 13)

“But the Berecyntes, a tribe of Phrygians, the Phrygians in general, and the Trojans, who live about Mount Ida, themselves also worship Rhe, and perform orgies in her honour; they call her mother of gods, Agdistis, and Phrygia, the Great Goddess; from the places also where she is worshipped, Idaea, and Dindymene, sipylene, Pessinuntis, and Cybele.  The Greeks call her ministers by the same name…  These same ministers are also called by them Corybantes.” (B. X. C. III. S 12.)

Pausanias, 2nd century A.D. Historian: “The people of Dyme have a temple of Athena with an extremely ancient image; they have as well a sanctuary built for the Dindymenian mother and Attis. As to Attis, I could learn no secret about him, but Hermesianax, the elegiac poet, says in a poem that he was the son of Galaus the Phrygian, and that he was a eunuch from birth. The account of Hermesianax goes on to say that, on growing up, Attis migrated to Lydia and celebrated for the Lydians the orgies of the Mother.” (7.17.9-12)

“These are those whom nowadays at Rome they call galli—they serve the mother not of the gods but of demons—because the Romans freed some priests of this race who were deprived of their sex-drive in honor of Atys, whom the harlot goddess made a eunuch.  On this account therefore men of the Gallic race are made effeminate, that those who seized the city of Rome might be struck by this disgrace.” (St. Jerome, 4th century A.D.; as cited in N. Lane’s “Cybele, Attis and related cults,” p. 123)

Justin Martyr, in his 2nd century A.D. Apology refers to male and female prostitutes in the service of “the Mother of the Gods.”  The male prostitutes had been “openly mutilated for the purpose of sodomy.” According to Justin this practice was subject to taxation by the Roman Senate. …. “

Claim #2, No Eunuch Priests in Ephesus

S.M. Baugh:  “The whole notion of a Megabyzos eunuch priest is irrelevant for Pauline Ephesus and will accordingly draw no more notice” (Women in the Church, 3rd Edition, p. 41).

Citing Strabo and Pausanias, Florence Mary Bennet describes both the eunuch priests of Artemis Ephesos, and the eunuch priests of Cybele:

She [Artemis Ephesos] was served by eunuch priests, called Megabyzi, and by maidens. Presumably these priests are the same as the Essenes, whom Pausanias mentions as servitors for one year, who were bound by strict rules of chastity and required to submit to ascetic regulations of dietary and ablution. The virgins associated with them passed through three stages: Postulant, Priestess, Past-Priestess. There is nothing to indicate the length of their term of service. The Megabyzi were held in the highest possible honour,  as were the Galli at Pessinus.

Though the castration of Artemis’ priests may have been replaced with strict rules of celibacy and fasting during the 1st or 2nd century A.D., the castration of Cybele’s Galli continued through to the 4th century A.D., when the Emperor Julian celebrated the ritual as a “holy and inexpressible harvest.” (Oratio V, 168 D)

Strabo:  “The Galli, [priests of Cybele] who are eunuchs, enter the enclosure with impunity, approach even the opening or mouth, bend down over it, and descend into it to a certain depth, restraining their breath during the time, for we perceived by their countenance signs of some suffocating feeling.  This exemption may be common to all eunuchs, or it may be confined to the eunuchs employed about the temple, or it may be the effect of divine care, as is probable in the case of persons inspired by the deity, or it may perhaps be procured by those who are in possession of certain antidotes.”  (B. XIII. C. IV. S 15-17)

Encyclopedia Brittanica, concerning the eunuch priests of Cybele: “Galli, singular Gallus, priests, often temple attendants or wandering mendicants, of the ancient Asiatic deity, the Great Mother of the Gods, known as Cybele, or Agdistis, in Greek and Latin literature. The Galli were eunuchs attired in female garb, with long hair fragrant with ointment. Together with priestesses, they celebrated the Great Mother’s rites with wild music and dancing until their frenzied excitement found its culmination in self-scourging, self-laceration, or exhaustion. Self-emasculation by candidates for the priesthood sometimes accompanied this delirium of worship.”

Though Cybele was indeed worshiped through the New Testament period, and though her mysteries were indeed associated with orgies and fertility offerings (male genitals), some complementarians question whether or not Cybele’s cult could properly be associated with 1st century Ephesus. ... "

“ …Further evidence of the persistence of Cybele worship in Ephesus can be found in the 4th century A.D., when the Emperor Julian was initiated into “the mysteries” in “the caverns of Ephesus.”  He composed the now famous, “Hymn to the Mother of the Gods”; namely, Cybele.

The following quotation provides a summary of Cybele worship as it existed throughout the Roman Empire, and throughout the New Testament era.  Note the references to “orgies,” “castration,” and the connection of the goddess with childbirth:

“Around 200 BC the holy black rock of the goddess [Cybele] was moved from the Phrygian city of Pessinos, which had been the previous centre of her worship. Rome became the new centre, and her cult grew. The Romans identified Cybele with the Greek Rhea, and called her Magna Mater, the Great Mother. The priests of the cult were men who had castrated themselves in front of her image, but most of the followers were women. The cult was a tumultuous, noisy and ecstatic affair which attracted many people. Only women (and castrated men) were allowed to attend the main celebrations of the goddess, which quickly got the reputation of being less religious ritual and more wild orgies. Much gossip went around about the indecencies and depravities of the cult, but due to the protection of influential people it avoided persecution. The cult was led by the female priestesses and the Archigalli, the high priest of the subordinate Galli; castrated male priests who were responsible for most of the dance, divination and healing of the cult. Many of the worshipers were organised into fraternities, most notably the Dendrophori (“Tree-bearers”) and Cannophori (“Reed-bearers”). Members of these fraternities enjoyed a bit of social status and influence, and many important people flocked to them. The liturgy of the cult was in Greek. Many of the ceremonies commemorated the deeds of Magna Mater and her love to Attis, who represented the fertility and plants of the land. By his castration and death the land was given new life. Many festivals were held, called ludi (“plays”) which were enthusiastic carnivals with banquets and comedic performances.

One of the major festivals was Megalesia the 4-10 April. At the height of the celebrations the taurobolium was performed, as a bull was castrated and sacrificed, and new initiates were baptised in its blood. Another major festival was celebrated the 25th March to commemorate the castration and death of Attis. The Cannophori carried reeds and stalks to the temple together with the idol of Attis. The taurobolium was performed, and the genitals of the bull was thrown into a cave or well consecrated to Magna Mater. After three days of sorrow and grief for Attis, the carnival returned with Hilaria, the Day of Joy as Attis was resurrected and fertility yet again reigned thanks to the power of Magna Mater. Mountains and caves were sacred to Magna Mater, and her temples were often built near them. By sleeping in a temple many women hoped to get help from the goddess, who was said to help mothers and children. Midwifes were tied to the cult, and many priests were healers. The priestesses were more involved with her ecstatic side, celebrating her secret mysteries behind locked doors. Practically nothing is known about them, except that they were exclusively women only.” … “

Egypt, Late Dynastic to Ptolemaic Period, ca. 664 to 30 BCE. A hand-built faience ithyphallic male figure shown seated upon an integral rectangular plinth. Nude and covered in powdery blue pigment, the figure presents with an upright posture while holding the head and upper shaft of his phallus inside a round-bottomed jar, perhaps meant to represent fertility or virility. He peers forward with almond-shaped eyes outlined in black beneath black brows and has a slender nose, full lips with indented corners, rounded cheeks, and a low-cropped coiffure above gently flared ears.

Bluegreen Ptolemaic faience of a phallus being milked - I have a Greek version of this image above - My guess is the tight Egyptian and Greek penis lock was like the “honey pot” …

The "water pot" over an exposed vulva at the top of this page, could also be a honey pot - Egyptian women were harvesting honey from locked Egyptian men!

-That was the "mystery" the priestess of Priapus is talking about in the Satyricon - The standard female eight inch Greek dildo in the anus of the penis locked Greek male was the milking tool ...:

" ... Meanwhile, cups of unmixed wine went merrily around (and the crones greedily devoured the goose which they had but so lately lamented. When the last morsel had disappeared, Oenothea, half-drunk by this time, looked at me and said, "We must now go through with the mysteries, so that you may get back your virility."

As she said this Oenothea brought out a leathern dildo which, when she had smeared it with oil, ground pepper, and pounded nettle seed, she commenced to force, little by little, up my anus.

The merciless old virago then anointed 
the insides of my thighs with the same decoction; 
finally mixing nasturtium juice with elixir of southern wood, she gave my genitals a bath and, picking up a bunch of green nettles, she commenced to strike me gently all over my belly below the navel. 

The nettles stung me horribly and I
 suddenly took to my heels, with the old hags in full pursuit. Although they were befuddled with wine and lust 
they followed the right road and chased me through several wards, screaming "Stop thief."

That’s temple of Aphrodite sex - Female phallus sex is why it was not a taboo for Persian and Armenian families to send their unmarried daughters to work as prostitutes in the temples of Aphrodite. - Innana required all Sumerian women to do that at least once in their lifetimes …


…Pompeius Trogus, 1st century B.C. historian:“The Cypriots send their young women before marriage to the seashore to get money by prostitution.”  This is a reference to the prostitution associated with sanctuary of Aphrodite at Paleopaphos. (as cited in Justin, Epitome of History 18.5)

Strabo, 1st century A.D. historian:“Now the sacred rites of the Persians, one and all, are held in honour by both the Medes and the Armenians; but those of Anaïtis are held in exceptional honour by the Armenians, who have built temples in her honour in different places, and especially in Acilisene. Here they dedicate to her service male and female slaves. This, indeed, is not a remarkable thing; but the most illustrious men of the tribe actually consecrate to her their daughters while maidens; and it is the custom for these first to be prostituted in the temple of the goddess for a long time and after this to be given in marriage; and no one disdains to live in wedlock with such a woman. Something of this kind is told also by Herodotus in his account of the Lydian women, who, one and all, he says, prostitute themselves.” (11.14.16)

At Corinth there were “more than 1000 sacred prostitutes whom both men and women dedicated to the goddess.” (8.6.20)

“ … Individuals who went against the traditional gender binary were heavily involved in the cult of Inanna. During Sumerian times, a set of priests known as gala worked in Inanna's temples, where they performed elegies and lamentations. Men who became gala sometimes adopted female names and their songs were composed in the Sumerian eme-sal dialect, which, in literary texts, is normally reserved for the speech of female characters. Some Sumerian proverbs seem to suggest that gala had a reputation for engaging in anal sex with men.  During the Akkadian Period, kurgarru and assinnu were servants of Ishtar who dressed in female clothing and performed war dances in Ishtar's temples. Several Akkadian proverbs seem to suggest that they may have also had homosexual proclivities. Gwendolyn Leick, an anthropologist known for her writings on Mesopotamia, has compared these individuals to the contemporary Indian hijra.  In one Akkadian hymn, Ishtar is described as transforming men into women.

Throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, it was widely believed that the cult of Inanna involved a "sacred marriage" ritual, in which a king would establish his legitimacy by taking on the role of Dumuzid and engaging in ritual sexual intercourse with the high priestess of Inanna, who took on the role of the goddess. This view, however, has been challenged and scholars continue to debate whether the sacred marriage described in literary texts involved any kind of physical ritual enactment at all and, if so, whether this ritual enactment involved actual intercourse or merely the symbolic representation of intercourse. The scholar of the ancient Near East Louise M. Pryke states that most scholars now maintain, if the sacred marriage was a ritual that was actually acted out, then it involved only symbolic intercourse.

The cult of Ishtar was long thought to have involved sacred prostitution, but this is now rejected among many scholars. Hierodules known as ishtaritum are reported to have worked in Ishtar's temples, but it is unclear if such priestesses actually performed any sex acts and several modern scholars have argued that they did not. Women across the ancient Near East worshipped Ishtar by dedicating to her cakes baked in ashes (known as kaman tumri). A dedication of this type is described in an Akkadian hymn. Several clay cake molds discovered at Mari are shaped like naked women with large hips clutching their breasts. Some scholars have suggested that the cakes made from these molds were intended as representations of Ishtar herself. … “ Wikipedia

Another coincidence was the discovery of Sponsian a lost Roman emperor wearing a 3rd century AD Attis crown - Thats around the time I believe Rome went to black Africa to die!

" A scientific analysis of ancient gold coins, long dismissed as fakes, has revealed the existence of a previously unknown Roman emperor.

Sponsian, a Roman military commander turned emperor, isn’t mentioned in historical documents and is only known to us today through a horde of Roman-era coins discovered in Transylvania in 1713.

Around 1850, scholars re-examined their crude design and dismissed them as forgeries, which in turn cast doubts on the existence of Sponsian.

New research suggests, however, that the coins’ unrefined flaws may instead reflect the fact that they were produced on the fringes of Roman society, rather than by the more expert minters responsible for most of the coins.

Scottish collector William Hunter bequeathed four coins from the horde, three depicting known Roman emperors Gordian III and Phillip I and a fourth that portrays Sponsian, to the Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow in 1783. Once their provenance came under question, they were relegated to a wooden cupboard and have only now been reassessed.

Scientific analysis has shown that they were once used in active circulation and were then buried for a long time, evidence that strongly suggests that they are, in fact, authentic.

Following this exciting discovery, similar research involving high magnification microscopic analysis has been carried out on another coin depicting Sponsian from the horde, held at the Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu, Romania. The results match the initial findings.

“The collaboration with our partners was particularly pleasant and interesting,” said interim manager of the Brukenthal, Alexander Constantin Chituta. “For the history of Transylvania and Romania in particular, but also for the history of Europe in general, if these results are accepted by the scientific community, they will mean the addition of another important historical figure in our history.”

Though it now appears likely that Sponsian did exist, little is known about his life. Given the location of the coins it seems likely that the military commander was posted to what was then the Province of Dacia, in modern-day Transylvania, Romania. In the midst of political turmoil, he may have found himself cut off from the rest of the empire and forced to take on the role of emperor to establish order and protect the isolated territory.

Coins were an important symbol of power and authority during the Roman era, which may explain why Sponsian arranged to have them produced locally.

With their provenance now secured, the four gold coins at the Hunterian and the coin at the Brukenthal will go on public display."artnet

Two young Romans initiated into the cult of Priapus by Quartilla a priestess of Priapus

" ... We would have cried aloud in our misery but there was no one to give us any help, and whenever I attempted to shout, "Help! all honest citizens," Psyche would prick my cheeks with her hairpin, and the little girl would intimidate Ascyltos with a brush dipped in satyrion.

Then a catamite appeared, clad in a myrtle-colored frieze robe, and girded round with a belt. One minute he nearly gored us to death with his writhing buttocks, and the next, he befouled us so with his stinking kisses that Quartilla, with her robe tucked high, held up her whalebone wand and ordered him to give the unhappy wretches quarter. Both of us then took a most solemn oath that so dread a secret should perish with us.

Several wrestling instructors appeared and refreshed us, worn out as we were, by a massage with pure oil, and when our fatigue had abated, we again donned our dining clothes and were escorted to the next room, in which were placed three couches, and where all the essentials necessary to a splendid banquet were laid out in all their richness. We took our places,as requested, and began with a wonderful first course. We were all but submerged in Falernian wine. When several other courses had followed, and we were endeavoring to keep awake Quartilla exclaimed, "How dare you think of going to sleep when you know that the vigil of Priapus is to be kept?" ...

“ … Phallic votives played a large part in the temple healing tradition and today they are a useful archaeological diagnostic tool to explore what worried ancients the most about their health.

In the case of phallic objects, the most common condition depicted was phimosis – a condition in which the foreskin is very tight and can cause pain and infertility to the person affected. While phimosis is a specific ailment, it might also be a clear way of illustrating multiple issues related to sexual organs.

It is likely that people of all genders would dedicate these phallic votives – perhaps because they came to represent fertility more generally. In fact, this practice continued well into the eighteenth century in Italy according to contemporary accounts. … “ - Science Museum

Although Aesclepius was the major Roman God of healing, Apollo was also worshipped in Britain as were some older Celtic Gods such as Sulis and Brigantia. Votive (small models of diseased body parts) were given to the gods in the hope the giver would be healed. Often they were thrown into sacred pools or springs. Bronze amulets were also worn often in the shape of phalluses. It is unclear if these were for general good luck or good health or specific problems like infertility, sexual or penile diseases.

“ … Quartilla is a character in the Satyricon which is said to be the "first picaresque" novel in Latin although it is not completely extant. This story was written by Petronius Arbiter in the first century. Quartilla is a follower of the god Priapus and she and her maids are involved with seducing and torturing three of the characters, Encolpius, Ascyltum, and Giton.

She has been the subject of artistic and academic study. It has been proposed that she represents Octavia and her name is a pun like reference for the reader. … “ Wikipedia

In this dinner scene a catamite or male sexual passive is brought in by Quartilla who harasses our heroes with the gyrating of his buttocks … the emphasis on his buttocks means the phallus was certainly Quartilla and he fellow female followers of Priapus - Nymph and dildo was the definition of a Bacchante … Quartilla finishes off dinner by sexually kissing and fondling Giton - an eight year old boy...

Without the universal penis cage that behaviour does not make sense - In the classical world eros was female driven not male ..


“ … The banquet began all over again, and Quartilla challenged us to a drinking-bout, the crash of the cymbals lending ardor to her revel. A catamite appeared, the stalest of all mankind, well worthy of that house. Heaving a sigh, he wrung his hands until the joints cracked, and spouted out the following verses,

"Hither, hither 
quickly gather, 
pathic companions boon;
Artfully stretch forth 
your limbs 
and on
with the dance 
and play!
Twinkling feet 
and supple thighs 
and agile buttocks 
in tune,
Hands well skilled 
in raising passions, 
Delian eunuchs gay!"

When he had finished his poetry, he slobbered a most evil-smelling kiss upon me, and then, climbing upon my couch, he proceeded with all his might and main to pull all of my clothing off. I resisted to the limit of my strength. He manipulated my member for a long time, but all in vain. Gummy streams poured down his sweating forehead, and there was so much chalk in the wrinkles of his cheeks that you might have mistaken his face for a roofless wall, from which the plaster was crumbling in a rain.

Driven to the last extremity, I could no longer keep back the tears. "Madame," I burst out, "is this the night-cap which you ordered served tome?" 

Clapping her hands softly she cried out, "Oh you witty rogue, you are a fountain of repartee, but you never knew before that a catamite was called a k-night-cap, now did you?"

Then, fearing my companion would come off better than I, "Madame," I said, "I leave it to your sense of fairness: is Ascyltos to be the only one in this dining-room who keeps holiday?"

"Fair enough," conceded Quartilla, "let Ascyltos have his k-night-cap too!" On hearing that, the catamite changed mounts, and, having bestridden my comrade, nearly drove him to distraction with his buttocks and his kisses. 

Giton was standing between us and splitting his sides with laughter when Quartilla noticed him, and actuated by the liveliest curiosity, she asked whose boy he was, and upon my answering that he was my "brother," "Why has he not kissed me then?" she demanded. 

Calling him to her, she pressed a kiss upon his mouth, then putting her hand beneath his robe, she took hold of his little member, as yet so undeveloped. "This," she remarked, "shall serve me very well tomorrow, as a whet to my appetite, but today I'll take no common fare after choice fish!"

Dinner ends with Quartilla forcing the sexual inititation of the boy Giton with a girl his own age ... Quartilla rejects the argument that they are too young as she was sexually initiated as a child -

This scene has been interpreted as the Greek "hieros gamos" of eros and psyche:

“ ... She was still talking when Psyche, who was giggling, came to her side and whispered something in her ear. What it was, I did not catch. "By all means," ejaculated Quartilla, "a brilliant idea! Why shouldn't our pretty little Pannychis lose her maidenhead when the opportunity is so favorable?" A little girl, pretty enough, too, was led in at once; she looked to be not over seven years of age, and she was the same one who had before accompanied Quartilla to our room. Amidst universal applause, and in response to the demands of all, they made ready to perform the nuptial rites.

I was completely out of countenance, and insisted that such a modest boy as Giton was entirely unfitted for such a wanton part, and moreover, that the child was not of an age at which she
could receive that which a woman must take. "Is that so," Quartilla scoffed, "is she any younger than I was, when I submitted to my first man? Juno my patroness, curse me if I can remember the time when I ever was a virgin, for I diverted myself with others of my own age, as a child then as the years passed, I played with bigger boys, until at last I reached my present age. I suppose that this explains the origin of the proverb,

'Who carried the calf may carry the bull,' as they say."

As I feared that Giton might run greater risk if I were absent, I got upto take part in the ceremony.

Psyche had already enveloped the child's head in the bridal-veil,
the catamite, holding a torch, led the long procession of drunken women which followed; they were clapping their hands, having previously decked out the bridal-bed with a suggestive drapery.

Quartilla, spurred on by the wantonness of the others, seized hold of Giton and drew him into the bridal-chamber. There was
no doubt of the boy's perfect willingness to go, nor was the girl at all alarmed at the name of marriage. When they were finally in bed, and the door shut,we seated ourselves outside the door of the bridal-chamber, and Quartilla applied a curious eye to
a chink, purposely made, watching their childish dalliance with lascivious attention . She then drew me gently over to her side that I might share the spectacle with her, and when we both attempted to peep our faces were pressed against each other; whenever she was not engrossed in the performance, she screwed up her lips to meet mine, and pecked at me continually with furtive kisses. ... “

“ … Claudia Octavia (late 39 or early 40 – June 9, AD 62) was a Roman empress. She was the daughter of the Emperor Claudius and Valeria Messalina. After her mother's death and father's remarriage to her cousin Agrippina the Younger, she became the stepsister of the future Emperor Nero. She also became his wife, in a marriage between the two which was arranged by Agrippina.
Octavia was popular with the Roman people, but Nero hated their marriage. When his mistress, Poppaea Sabina, became pregnant, he divorced and banished Octavia. When this led to a public outcry, he instead had her executed. …. “ Wikipedia

Locked sex under three raging Amazons


In this passage from the Satyricon we get an inner view of the Roman brothel - While there are naked female prostitutes - the emphasis is more seduction of boys like Giton by older men - Martial had a taste for sex with young boys, but he was unable to afford it

-The Roman pattern - or penis cage pattern of the Greek and probably Egyptian world - was the male body as sex object, not female : or phallic Roman matrons over men and men over boys like Giton - The low level gladiator is laughed at for never having secured a position on the "list" of married persons ... The sex under raging Amazons part was never openly spoken or written about - and I guess that was because that was the Roman religion ... All we have is hints from the art of phallic women all over the Roman world ...


" ... "Please, mother," I wheedled, "you don't know where I lodge, do you?"

Delighted with such humorous affability, "What's the reason I don't"she replied, and getting upon her feet, she commenced to walk ahead of me.

I took her for a prophetess until, when presently we came to more obscure quarter, the affable old lady pushed aside a crazy-quilt and remarked, "Here's where you ought to live," and when I denied that I recognized the house, I saw some men prowling stealthily between the rows of name-boards and naked prostitutes.

Too late I realized that I had been led into a brothel. After cursing the wiles of the little old hag, I covered my head and commenced to run through the middle of the night-house to the exit opposite, when, lo and behold! whom should I meet on the very threshold but Ascyltos himself, as tired as I was, and almost dead; you would have thought that he had been brought by the self-same little old hag! I smiled at that, greeted him cordially, and asked him what he was doing in such
a scandalous place.

Wiping away the sweat with his hands, he replied, "If you only knew what I have gone through!" "What was it?" I demanded.

"A most respectable looking person came up to me," he made reply, "while I was wandering all over the town and could not find where I had left my inn, and very graciously offered to guide me. He led me through some very dark and crooked alleys, to this place, pulled out his tool, and commenced to beg me to comply with his appetite. A whore had already vacated her cell for us, and he had laid hands upon me, and, but for the fact that I was the stronger, I would have been compelled to take my medicine."

While Ascyltos was telling me of his bad luck, who should come up again but this same very respectable looking person, in company with a woman not at all bad looking, and, looking at Ascyltos, he requested him on enter the house, assuring him that there was nothing to fear, and, since he was unwilling to take the passive part, he should have the active.

The woman, on her part, urged me very persistently to accompany her, so we followed the couple, at last, and were conducted between the rows of name-boards, where we saw, in cells, many persons of each sex amusing themselves in such a manner that it seemed to me that every one of them must have been drinking satyrion.

On catching sight of us, they attempted to seduce us
with paederastic wantonness, and one wretch, with
his clothes girded up, assaulted Ascyltos, and, having thrown him down upon a couch, attempted to gore him from above. I succored the sufferer immediately, however, and having joined forces, we defied the troublesome wretch.

Ascyltos ran out of the house and took to his heels, leaving me as the object of their lewd attacks, but the crowd, finding me the stronger in body and purpose, let me go unharmed.

After having tramped nearly all over the city, I caught sight of Giton, as though through a fog, standing at the end of the street, on the very threshold of the inn, and I hastened to the same place. When I inquired whether my "brother" had prepared anything for breakfast, the boy sat down upon the bed and wiped away the trickling tears with his thumb. I
was greatly disturbed by such conduct on the part of my "brother,"and demanded to be told what had happened. After I
had mingled threats with entreaties, he answered slowly and against his will, "That brother or comrade of yours rushed into
the room a little while ago and commenced to attempt my virtue by force. When I screamed, he pulled out his tool and gritted out -- If you're a Lucretia, you've found your Tarquin!"

When I heard this, I shook my fists in Ascyltos' face, "What have you to say for yourself," I snarled, "you rutting pathic harlot, whose very breath is infected?" Ascyltos pretended to bristle up
and, shaking his fists more boldly still, he roared:

"Won't you keep quiet, you filthy gladiator, you who escaped from the criminal's cage in the amphitheatre to which you were condemned for the murder of your host? Won't you hold your tongue, you nocturnal assassin, who, even when you swived it bravely, never entered the lists with a decent woman in your life? Was I not a 'brother' to you in the pleasure-garden, in the same sense as that in which this boy now is in this lodging-house?"

"You sneaked away from the master's lecture," I objected. "What should I have done, you triple fool, when I was dying of hunger? I suppose I should have listened to opinions as much to the purpose as the tinkle of broken glass or the interpretation of dreams. By Hercules, you are much more deserving of censure than I, you who will flatter a poet so as to get an invitation to dinner!" Then we laughed ourselves out of
most disgraceful quarrel,and approached more peaceably whatever remained to be done. ... "

That's the scene from the Roman brothels that the Satyricon does not cover - Empress Messalina the mother of Octavia /Quatrilla was riding up to 25 men and boys a night in the Suburran district ... Roman sex at the time of Christ was female not male driven


In this scene from the Satyricon Circe a high class lady seduces the low class gladiator Encolypius - who unfortunately was already in love with Giton an eight year old boy - The gladiator fails to light the fire or get a “hare” and ends up being whipped by Circe’s slaves … The penis cage causes female sexual aggression:

“ … 127-128: Polyaenus (Encolpius’ pseudonym) dallies with Circe

She smiled so sweetly with delight, I thought the unclouded moon was showing me her full face. then, her fingers governing her tone, she said: ‘Young man, if you do not scorn to love a well-endowed lady, who this very year had her first experience of a man, I bring you a new friend. True you have a ‘brother’ to love, not that I regret inquiring indeed, but what prevents you taking on a ‘sister’ too? I’ll adopt the same role. Deign only to acknowledge my kiss, at your pleasure.’

‘I should rather implore you by your beauty,’ I replied, ‘not to disdain the admittance of a stranger to your worshippers. You’ll find me a true votary, if you let me adore you. And don’t think I’d enter this shrine to Love, without an offering, I’ll give you my ‘brother’. ‘What’ she answered, ‘you’d offer me him without whom you cannot live, on whose lips you hang, whom you love as I’d have you love me?’

As she spoke, so much grace attended her words, so sweetly did that gentle sound fill the air, that it seemed a Siren sang harmoniously in the breeze. And as I marvelled, while somehow the whole light of the heavens shone more brightly upon me, I was pleased to ask this goddess her name. ‘So my maid did not tell you, I am called Circe?’ she answered? ‘Not indeed a daughter of the Sun, nor can my mother stop the world in its course, when she pleases. Nevertheless it will be to heaven’s credit if we are united. Surely some god, in silent thought, is now preparing something? Not without cause does Circe love Polyaenus: a great fire always blazes between these names. Take me in your arms, if you so wish. You’ve no need to fear that anyone might spy on us. Your ‘brother’ is far away.’

So saying, Circe clasped me in two arms softer than a bird’s plumage and drew me to the ground carpeted with grass and herbs.

‘Such flowers as Earth, our mother, poured out
on Mount Ida’s summit, when Jove took Juno
In lawful love, his whole heart nurturing flame:
for roses gleamed there, violets, tender sedge,
there white lilies smiled in the green meadow:
such ground summoned Venus to the soft grass,
and the day, brightening, blessed their secret love.’

We lay there together on the grass, exchanging a thousand little kisses, but seeking more serious pleasures. ‘What’s wrong?’ she asked, ‘do my kisses offend you? Is my breath sour with fasting? Do I neglect my underarms? If it’s not that, are you frightened of Giton?’ I blushed crimson, and evidently lost whatever manhood I’d been exhibiting, as if my whole body was incapacitated. ‘I beg you, my lady,’ I cried, ‘please don’t mock the afflicted. I’m affected by sorcery.’

‘Chrysis,’ she said, ‘Tell me honestly, am I ugly or unkempt? Is there some natural blemish makes him blind to my beauty? Don’t deceive your mistress. I don’t know in what way I’ve sinned.’ Next she snatched a mirror from the silent girl, and after trying every expression that usually conjures a smile between lovers, shook out the cloak the earth had stained and hurried into the temple of Venus. I, on the contrary, as wretched and terrified as if I’d been seduced by some succubus, began to question my pride as to whether I’d been cheated of true delight.

‘As if, in drowsy night, when dreams deceive
our errant eyes, the earth yields wealth to light,
beneath the spade: our eager hands turn to theft
and snatch at treasure, while sweat runs down
our face, as terror grips our heart, lest someone
strike our laden breast, aware of hidden gold:
then when joy flees from the brain it cheated,
and reality returns, the mind, longs for what
it lost, preoccupied with that transient vision…’

‘Well, in Socrates’ name,’ cried Giton, ‘I give thanks that you love me with his kind of faithfulness. For Alcibiades never lay untouched so, in his teacher’s bed.’ ‘Believe me, dear,’ I replied, ‘I doubt I’m a man any longer, I certainly don’t feel like one. That part of my flesh that was once a veritable Achilles is dead and gone.’ The lad, lest he be caught in private with me and give rise to rumour, tore himself away, and fled into the recesses of the house. … “

More locked sex under three raging Amazons - Muscle amazon has a go

- My guess is that Amazon over locked male sex was the same as the classic Greek Socrates /Alcibades sexual relationship - The student being prepubescent was not yet penis locked and was free to have anal sex with his older teacher:

“ … ‘Well, in Socrates’ name,’ cried Giton, ‘I give thanks that you love me with his kind of faithfulness. For Alcibiades never lay untouched so, in his teacher’s bed.’ … “

Circe suggests that she can play the eight year old Giton’s sexual role with the gladiator:

“ …‘Young man, if you do not scorn to love a well-endowed lady, who this very year had her first experience of a man, I bring you a new friend. True you have a ‘brother’ to love, not that I regret inquiring indeed, but what prevents you taking on a ‘sister’ too? I’ll adopt the same role. … “

In the Lysistrata a similar man-boy love is suggested as an acceptable compromise when the women stop having sex with the penis locked Greek noble men

Garden of Priapus - 1773

Closing scene: Boss lady gallops the slave!

Whether it is acknowledged or not, for Greek and Roman nobles, the penis was locked and any penetrative sex was eromenos or passive anal only - Mostly phallic women but also unlocked men and unlocked boys as erestes or playing the sexually active role …


The consensus is the opposite though - eromenos is defined as the prepubescent Alcibades as a sexual passive under his teacher the erestes Socrates -

Martial also refers to anal sex with boys as something that has to be paid for - when describing the sex “lewd old dames” desired from him when he needed money from them … ie The sex he has with older women was like the sex he desired with boys but could not afford …

“ … Erômenos  means ‘one who is sexually desired’ in Greek language and is the past participle of the verb eramai, to have sexual desire. In Greek Homosexuality, the first modern scholarly work on this topic, Kenneth Dover used the literal translation of the Greek word as an English word to refer to the passive partner in Greek homosexual relationship. Though in many contexts the younger man is also called pais, ‘boy’, the word can also be used for child, girl, son, daughter and slave, and therefore eromenos would be more specific and can “avoid the cumbrousness and…imprecision of ‘boy’”. It is in contrast to the masculine active participle eran (‘be in love with…’, ‘have a passionate desire for’). The word erastes (lover), however, can be adapted to a married man’s role in both heterosexual and homosexual relationship.

In vase paintings and other artworks, the eromenos is often depicted as a beautiful young adult. His relatively smaller stature suggests his passive role in the relationship and younger age as well as social status. Usually, they show a combination of a youthful-looking face with a body which possesses mature musculature. The lack of beard and pubic hair are an important clue in identifying an eromenos, though this may possibly be attributed to style. A poem quoted in Greek Sexuality (couplet 1327f) shows that ‘the poet will never cease to ‘fawn on’ the boy so long as the boy’s cheek is hairless.

His specific age is a nuanced issue for the eromenos, and the writer Strato put it:

The youthful bloom of the twelve-year-old gives me joy, but much more desirable is the boy of thirteen. He whose years are fourteen is a still sweeter flower of the Loves, and even more charming is he who is beginning his fifteenth year. The sixteenth year is that of the gods, and to desire the seventeenth does not fall to my lot, but only to Zeus. But if one longs for one still older, he no longer plays, but already demands the Homeric ‘but to him replied.’

Therefore, we can conclude that eromenos is not a fixed term, as it is only a stage in the development of young Greek men. After they grow up, their relationship with the erastes could end and they could get married or start another relationship. This experience, similar to some forms of socially-constructed bisexuality, is also shown in books, such as how Bion the Borysthenite condemns Alcibiades, that in his adolescence he drew away the husbands from their wives, and as a young man the wives from their husbands.  According to Garrison, for Cretan boys, the passage to adulthood is the ‘prewedding’ of sex with a mature man.

The image of Ganymede ... is the ideal portrait of an eromenos. The muscles on his body contrasts with the hoop, a child's toy which emphasises the shape of his genitals and inner thighs, and he holds the cockerel, which is the love gift from Zeus. There is no moustache or pubic hair.

John Beazley’s three types of erotic scenes appear in Athenian vase paintings. Eromenoi are often touched on chin and genitals by their erastes (alpha group), presented with gifts (beta group) or entwined between the thighs of their erastes (gamma group). Meanwhile, Eva Cantarella discovered that representations of pederastic relationships contain two successive moments of courtship. The first phase is similar to Beazley’s alpha group, while in the second phase the eromenos stands behind the erastes with his penis between his thighs, somehow similar to the gamma group.This vase (Brygos Painter) depicts a classical scene of an erastes courting an eromenos. As the eromenos’ legs are positioned between the erastes’ thighs with the erastes touching his penis and his chin, it is similar to the alpha group. The pectoral and belly muscles show that he was well-trained in wrestling schools, and the bag of ‘Kydonian apples’ or quinces is a sign of his sexual awakening.
Dover and Gundel Koch-Harnack have argued that the gift-giving scene to the eromenos is in fact a courting scene. Common gifts include a sprig of flowers, a rabbit, and a fighting cock.

Poems and literature
The love for an eromenos is a frequent topic in Ancient Greek poems. Dover studied poems related to pederasty and quoted some verses expressing love to the eromonos, ‘O boy with the virginal eyes, I seek you, but you do not listen, not knowing that you are the charioteer of my soul!’ Also, A surviving fragment of Solon from the early sixth century B.C. writes that ‘Till he loves a lad in the flower of youth, bewitched by thighs and by sweet lips.’ 

The graffiti of Thera verified that anal penetration was normal in pederastic relationships, for in the inscriptions, Krimon used the verb oipein (male sexual act performed as either active or passive partner in Dorian dialect) to describe the intercourse with his eromenos, which indicates anal penetration. Also, literature suggested that the charm of the eromenos lay in his attractive anal area, which was described by various metaphors such as rosebud, fruits, figs or gold.

It is noteworthy that most of the Greek verses about homosexuality were about how the erastes longed for the eromenos, but few were written from the perspective of the eromenos.

The erastes-eromenos relationship can be not only between humans but also between humans and gods. The love between Apollo and Hyacinth was said to have been the archetype of pederasty in Sparta. Apollo fell in love with Hyacinth on account of his youthful beauty, and became his instructor in archery, music, hunting and the gymnasium. Hyacinth was killed by the discus thrown by Apollo when studying discus-throwing with him, and in some versions of myths it was Zephyr (a divinity of the wind) who also loved Hyacinth, and who disturbed the wind to cause this accident.
Though usually known as the mortal lover of Aphrodite, Adonis was said to be loved by other gods such as Apollo, Heracles and Dionysus, for his youth and beauty.

The Homeric Hymn of Aphrodite gives an explicit portrait of the erotic relationship between Ganymede and Zeus. Ganymede is a beautiful youth kidnapped by Zeus from Troy and who became immortal on Olympus. He was depicted in ancient vase paintings as the ideal of the eromenos.

The Athenians banned slaves from pursuing courtship of freeborn youths with themselves as the active partner, as Against Timarchus states that ‘A slave shall not be the lover of a free boy nor follow after him, or else he shall receive fifty blows of the public lash’; but this did not apply to free men. Nevertheless, to be in such a relationship with honour, eromenoi were supposed to resist the pursuit of their erastes to test their love, before finally yielding. According to Foucault, an eromenos should avoid being chased too easily, receiving too many gifts or quickly getting into a relationship before the erastes proved their passion, love and responsibility. Moreover, the perception of pederasty varied in different cities. While it was allowed in Elis and Boeotia, Ionians did not accept pederastic courtship. Athenians held a complicated attitude, as it was considered that Athenian fathers ought to protect their sons from suitors. …“ Wikipedia

The penis lock lit up female carnal passion or female lust that was stronger that male lust and forced Roman women to actively hunt for “hares" or penis caged erections - Brothels were an easy solution to that problem as men who went to them had locked erections that needed to be attended to …

It seems the man boy love community is much larger than suspected. In the Greek and Roman world that was okay - but in todays world that is not okay! It’s like I opened up a pandora’s box of repressed energy and it came out with extreme aggression …

Although the only extended narrative from antiquity is that of Apuleius from 2nd century AD, Eros and Psyche appear in Greek art as early as the 4th century BC.

After failing to perform sexually for the high class lady Circe, and being whipped in revenge, the gladiator in the Satryicon seeks a cure from the temple of Priapus - where two old crones whip him and fondle him and finally sodomize him:

“ … I then directed all my energies towards the recovery of my lost manhood. To achieve this I was ready even to devote myself to the gods; accordingly, I went out to invoke the aid of Priapus.

 Putting as good a face upon the matter as I could I knelt upon the threshold of his shrine and invoked the God in the following verses:

"Of Bacchus and the nymphs, 
companion boon,
Whom fair Dione 
set o'er forests wide
As God:
whom Lesbos 
and green Thasos own
For deity,
whom Lydians, 
far and wide
Adore through
all the seasons 
of the year;
Whose temple 
in his own Hypaepa placed,
Thou Dryad's joy 
and Bacchus', 
hear my prayer!
To thee I come,
by no dark blood disgraced,
No shrine,
in wicked lust 
have I profaned;
When I was 
poor and worn with want,
I sinned
Not by intent,
a pauper's sin's
not banned
As of another!
Unto thee I pray
Lift thou
the load from
off my tortured mind,
Forgive a light offense!
When fortune smiles
I'll not thy glory 
shun and leave behind
Thy worship!
Unto thee,
a goat that feels
His primest vigor, 
father of the flocks
Shall come!
And suckling pigs,
the tender young
Of some fine 
grunting sow! 
New wine,
in crocks
Shall foam!
Thy grateful praises 
shall be sung
By youths 
who thrice 
shall dance 
around thy shrine
Happy, in youth 
and full 
of this year's wine!"

While I was engaged in this diplomatic effort in behalf of the affected member, a hideous crone with disheveled hair, and clad in black garments which were in great disorder, entered the shrine and, laying hands upon me, led me thoroughly frightened, out into the portico.

"What witches" she cried, "have devoured your manhood? What filth did you tread upon at some crossroads, in the dark? Not even by the boy could you do your duty but, weak and effeminate, you are worn out like a cart-horse at a hill, you have lost both labor and sweat! Not content with getting yourself into trouble, you have stirred up the wrath of the gods against me and I will make you smart for it." 

She then led me, unresisting, back into the priestess's room, pushed me down upon the bed, snatched a cane that hung upon the door, and gave me another thrashing: I remained silent and, had the cane not splintered at the first stroke, thereby diminishing the force of the blow, she might easily have broken my arms or my head. I groaned dismally, and especially when she manipulated my member and, shedding a flood of tears, I covered my head with my right arm and huddled down upon the pillow. Nor did she weep less bitterly:

The sailor, 
naked from his 
foundered barque,
Some shipwrecked mariner 
seeks out to 
hear his woe;
When hail beats down
a farmer's crop,
his cark
Seeks consolation 
from another, too.
Death levels 
caste and 
sufferers unites,
And weeping parents 
are as one in grief;
We also will beseech 
the starry heights,
United prayers 
climb best,
is the belief.

She seated herself upon the other side of the bed and in quavering tones commenced to accuse the delays of old age.

At last the priestess came in. "Why," she cried, "what has brought you into my cell as if you were visiting a newly made grave? And on a feast-day, too, when even mourners ought to smile!"

"OEnothea," the old hag replied, "this young man here was born under an unlucky star: he can't dispose of his goods to either boy or girl. Such an unfortunate fellow you never saw. He has no tool at all, only a piece of leather soaked in water! I wish you would tell me what you think of a man who could get up from Circe's bed without having tasted pleasure!"

On hearing these words, OEnothea sat down between us and, after shaking her head for a while, "I'm the only one that knows how to cure that disease," said she, "and for fear you think I'm talking to hear myself talk, I'll just have the young fellow sleep with me for a night, and if I don't make it as hard as horn!

All that you see in the world 
must give heed to my mandates;
Blossoming earth,
when I will it,
must languish,
a desert.'
Riches pour forth,
when I will it,
from crags 
and grim boulders
Waters will spurt 
that will rival 
the Nile at its flooding
Seas calm 
their billows before me, 
gales silence their howlings,
Hearing my step!
And the rivers sink 
into their channels;
Dragons, Hyrcanian tigers 
stand fast at my bidding!
Why should I tell you
of small things?
The image of Luna
Drawn by my spells 
must descend,
and Apollo, 
Backs up his horses 
and turns 
from his course 
at my order!
Such is the power 
of my word!
By the rites 
of a virgin
Quenched is
the raging of bulls;
and the 
sun's daughter Circe
Changed and transfigured 
the crew of the wily Ulysses.
Proteus changes 
his form when
his good pleasure dictates,
I, who am skilled in these arts,
can the shrubs 
of Mount Ida
Plant in the ocean; 
turn rivers to flow 
up the mountains!" … “

Garden of Priapus - 1798

Bonus scene: More British stuff: Raw power sex - More Blue hair on top

The speech above seems to be an all powerful earth goddess speaking through the priestess of Priapus - Maybe even Cybele or Demeter or Baubo ! What seems clear from the Satryicon and the Priapea was the erect phallus cult in Rome was not male - It was female! And I’m sure that was because of the locked phallus

" .... At this declaration, which was so awe-inspiring, I shuddered in terror, and commenced to scrutinize the crone more narrowly.

"Come now," said OEnothea, "obey my orders," and, carefully wiping her hands, she bent over the cot and kissed me, once, twice!

On the middle of the altar OEnothea placed an old table, upon which she heaped live coals, then with melted pitch she repaired a goblet which had become cracked through age. Next she replaced, in the smoke-stained wall, a peg which had come out when she took down the wooden goblet.

Then, having donned a mantle, in the shape of a piece of square-cut cloth, she set a huge kettle upon the hearth and at the same time speared with a fork a cloth hanging upon the meathooks, and lifted it down.

It contained some beans which had been laid away for future use, and a very small and stale piece of pig's cheek, scored with a thousand slashes.

When she had untied the string which fastened the cloth, she poured some of the beans upon the table and ordered me to shell them quickly and carefully. I obey her mandate and with careful fingers separate the beans from the filthy pods which contain them; but she, accusing my clumsiness, hastily snatched them and, skillfully tearing off the pods with her teeth, spat them upon the ground, where they looked like dead flies.

I wondered, then, at the ingenuity of poverty and its expedients for emergency. So ardent a follower of this virtue did the priestess seem that it was reflected in everything around her. Her dwelling, in particular, was a very shrine of poverty.

No Indian ivory
set in gold
gleamed here,
No trodden marble
glistened here;
no earth
Mocked for its gifts;
but Ceres' festive grove:
With willow wickerwork
'twas set around,
New cups of clay
by revolutions shaped
Of lowly wheel.
For honey soft,
a bowl;
Platters of
green bark wickerwork,
a jar
Stained by the lifeblood
of the God of Wine;
The walls around
with chaff
and spattered clay
Were covered.
Flanging from
protruding nails
Were slender stalks
of the green rush;
and then
Suspended from
the smoky beam,
the stores
Of this poor cottage.
Service berries soft,
Entwined in
fragrant wreaths
hung down,
Dried savory
and raisins
by the bunch.
An hostess here
like she on
Attic soil,
Of Hecate's
pure worship
worthy she!
Whose fame
so grandly sang
'Twill live forever
through the speaking years.

In the next part the Priestess has to leave the gladiator in order to restart the fire for the sacrifice to Priapus which had gone out when the crone fell over

- In her absence the gladiator accidentally kills the sacred goose of the Temple of Priapus - This leads the the closing scene in the garden of Priapus where the gladiator is sodomized by the drunken crone with a leathern dildo … But the gladiator decides not to go though with the treatment to the end and runs away ...

Those crones are probably what men had to submit to at the midnight fire rites of Demeter every year …


" ... In the meantime, having shelled the beans, she took a mouthful of the meat and with the fork was replacing the pig's cheek, which was coeval with herself, upon the meat-hook, when the rotten stool, which she was using to augment her height, broke down under the old lady's weight and let her fall upon the hearth.

The neck of the pot was broken, putting out the fire, which
was just getting a good start, her elbow was burned by a flaming brand, and her whole face was covered by the ashes raised by her fall.

I jumped up in dismay and, not without laughing, helped the old lady to her feet. She hastily scurried out into the neighborhood to replenish the fire,for fear anything should delay the sacrifice.

I was on my way to the door of the cell when lo!
and behold! three sacred geese which were accustomed, I suppose, to demand their feed from the old woman at midday, made a rush at me and, surrounding me, made me nervous with their abominable rabid cackling.

One tore at my tunic, another undid the lacings of my sandals and tugged at them, but one in particular, the ringleader and moving spirit of this savage attack, did not hesitate to worry at my leg with his serrated bill.

Unable to see the joke, I twisted off one of the legs of the little table and,thus armed, began to belabor the pugnacious brute. Nor did I rest content with a light blow, I avenged myself by the death of the goose.

'Twas thus, I ween,
the birds of Stymphalus
To heaven fled,
by Herakles impelled;
The Harpies,
whose reeking
pinions held
That poison
which the feast of Phineus
All the air above
With their unwonted
lamentations shook,
The heavens
in uproar and confusion move
The Stars,
in dread,
their orbits
then forsook!

By this time the two remaining geese had picked up the beans which had been scattered all over the floor and bereft, I suppose, of their leader, had gone back into the temple; and I, well content with my revenge and my booty, threw the dead goose behind the cot and bathed the trifling wound in my leg with vinegar: then, fearing a scolding, I made up my mind to run away and, collecting together all my belongings, started to leave the house.

I had not yet stepped over the threshold of the cell, however, when I caught sight of OEnothea returning with an earthen vessel full of live coals.

Thereupon I retraced my steps and, throwing off my garments,
I took my stand just inside the door, as if I were awaiting her return.

She banked her fire with broken reeds, piled some pieces of wood on top,and began to excuse her delay on the ground that her friend would not permit her to leave until after the customary three drinks had been taken.

"But what were you up to in my absence?" she demanded. "Where are the beans?"

Thinking that I had done a thing worthy of all praise, I informed her of the battle in all its details and, that she might not be downcast any longer, I produced the dead goose in payment for her loss.

When the old lady laid eyes upon that, she raised such a clamor that you would have thought that the geese had invaded the room again.

Confounded and thunderstruck at the novelty of my crime, I asked her why she was so angry and why she pitied the goose rather than myself. ... "

In the Satyricon the gladiator regains his manhood while watching an old rich guy being sodomized Aversa Venus by a young woman :

" ...He was still speaking, when in came a matron of the
most exclusive social set, Philumene by name, who had often,
when young, extorted many a legacy by means of her charms, but an old woman now, the flower of her beauty faded,
she threw her son and daughter in the way of childless old men and throughthis substitution she contrived to continue her established policy.

She came to Eumolpus, both to commend her children to
his practical judgment and to entrust herself and her hopes to his good nature, he being the only one in all the world who could daily instruct young children in healthy precepts.

In short, she left her children in Eumolpus' house in order that they might hear the words that dropped from his lips, as this was the only legacy she could leave to them. Nor did she do otherwise than as she had promised, but left in his bed chamber a very beautiful daughter and her brother, a lad, and pretended that she herself was compelled to go out to a temple to offer up her vows.

Eumolpus, who was so continent that even I was a boy in
his eyes, lost no time in inviting the damsel to sacrifice to the Aversa Venus; but, as he had told everyone that he was gouty and that his back was weak, and as he stood in danger of upsetting the whole farce if he did not carefully live up to the pretence, he therefore, that the imposture might be kept up, prevailed upon the young lady to seat herself upon that goodness which had been commended to her, and ordered Corax to crawl under the bed upon which he himself was lying and after bracing himself by putting his hands upon the floor,
to hoist his master up and down with his own back.

Corax carried out the order in full and skillfully seconded the wriggling of the girl with a corresponding seesaw. Then, when the crisis was about due, Eumolpus, in a ringing voice, called outto Corax to increase the cadence. And thus the old lecher, suspended between his servant and his mistress, enjoyed himself just as if he were in a swing. Time and again Eumolpus repeated this performance, to the accompaniment of ringing laughter in which he himself joined.

At last, fearing I might lose an opportunity through lack of application, I also made advances to the brother who was enjoying the gymnastics of his sister through the keyhole, to see if he would prove amenable to assault. Nor did this well trained lad reject my advances; but alas! I discovered that the God was still my enemy.

However, I was not so blue over this failure as I had been over those before, and my virility returned a little later and, suddenly finding myself in better fettle I cried out, "Great are the gods who have made me whole again!

In his loving kindness, Mercury,who conducts and reconducts the souls, has restored to me that which a hostile hand had cut away. Look! You will find that I am more graciously endowed than was Protestilaus or any other of the heroes of old!"

So saying, I lifted up my tunic and showed Eumolpus that I was whole. At first he was startled, then, that he might believe his own eyes, he handled this pledge of the good will of the gods with both hands.

Our good humor was revived by this blessing and we laughed at the diplomacy of Philumene and at the skill with which her children plied their calling, little likely to profit them much with us, however, as it was only in hopes of coming into a legacy that she had abandoned the boy and girl to us.

Meditating upon this unscrupulous method of getting around childless old men, I began to take thought of the present state of our own affairs and made use of the occasion to warn Eumolpus that he might be bitten in biting the biters. "Everything that we do," I said, "should be dictated by Prudence.

Socrates, whose judgment was riper than that of the gods or of men used to boast that he had never looked into a tavern nor believed the evidence of his own eyes in any crowded assembly which was disorderly: so nothing is more in keeping than always conversing with wisdom.

Live coals are more readily held in men's mouths than a secret! Whatever you talk of at home will fly forth in an instant, become a swift rumor and beat at the walls of your city. Nor is it enough that your confidence thus has been broken, as rumor but grows in the telling and strives to embellish.

The covetous servant
who feared
to make public
his knowledge
A hole in the ground dug,
and therein
did whisper
his secret
That told
of a king's
hidden ears:
this the
earth straightway
And rustling reeds
added that
Midas was king
in the story.

"Every word of this is true," I insisted, "and no one deserves to get into trouble more quickly than he who covets the goods of others!

How could cheats and swindlers live unless they threw purses or little bags clinking with money into the crowd for bait?

Just as dumb brutes are enticed by food, human beings are not tobe caught unless they have something in the way of hope at which to nibble!

That was the reason that the Crotonians gave us such a satisfactory reception, but the ship does not arrive, from Africa, with your money and your slaves, as you promised. The patience of the fortune-hunters is worn out and they have already cut down their liberality so that, either I am mistaken, or else our usual luck is about to return to punish you!" ... “

The rich old guy being sodomized Aversa Venus by a young woman in the excerpt from the Satyricon above was named Eumolpus - In mythology Eumolpus was an African son of Poseidon and also a priest of Demeter and recorded as the founder of the Eleusinian mysteries

- Female phallus sex over locked men was the mystery of Eleusis!

“ … In Greek Mythology, Eumolpus (...Ancient Greek: Eúmolpos, "good singer" or "sweet singing" ...) was a legendary king of Thrace. He was described as having come to Attica either as a bard, a warrior, or a priest of Demeter and Dionysus.

Eumolpus was the son of Poseidon (Neptune in Roman tradition) and Chione. In the legend he is described as neither Greek, nor Thracian or Roman, but Libyan and a native of North Africa, though his mother Chione is said to be a Thracian princess. An alternative genealogy also stated that Eumolpus was born to the god Apollo and the nymph Astycome. He was the father of Immarados by the Oceanid Daeira.

According to the Bibliotheca, Chione, daughter of Boreas and the heroine Oreithyia, pregnant in secret with Eumolpus by Poseidon, was frightened of her father's reaction so she threw the baby into the ocean after giving birth to him. Poseidon however, looked after him and brought him to shore in Ethiopia, where Benthesikyme, a daughter of Poseidon and Amphitrite, raised the child as their own. When he grew up, Eumolpus married one of Benthesikyme's two daughters by her Ethiopian husband. Eumolpus however, loved a different daughter and made an attempt upon her chastity, and was banished because of this. He went to Thrace with his son Ismarus (or Immaradus) who was married to the daughter of King Tegyrius. Later on, Eumolpus was discovered in a plot to overthrow King Tegyrios and was obliged to take flight and fled to Eleusis where he formed a friendship with the Eleusinians.

In Eleusis, Eumolpus became one of the first priests of Demeter and one of the founders of the Eleusinian Mysteries. When Ismarus died, Tegyrios sent for Eumolpus to return to Thrace, they made peace and Eumolpus inherited the Thracian kingdom. During a war between Athens and Eleusis, Eumolpus sided with Eleusis and came with a numerous band of Thracians.

The traditions about this Eleusinian war, however, differ very much. According to some, the Eleusinians under Eumolpus attacked the Athenians under Erechtheus, but were defeated, and Eumolpus with his two sons, Phorbas and Immaradus, were slain.Pausanias relates a tradition that in the battle between the Eleusinians and Athenians, Erechtheus and Immaradus fell, and that thereupon peace was concluded on condition that the Eleusinians should in other respects be subject to Athens, but that they alone should have the celebration of their mysteries, and that Eumolpus and the daughters of Celeus should perform the customary sacrifices. His son, Immaradus, was killed by King Erechtheus. In some sources, Erechtheus having killed Eumolpus, Poseidon asked Zeus to avenge his son's death. Zeus killed Erechtheus with a lightning bolt or Poseidon made the earth open up and swallow Erechtheus. According to Hyginus, Eumolpus came to Attica with a colony of Thracians, to claim the country as the property of his father, Poseidon.

Eleusis lost the battle with Athens but the Eumolpides and Kerykes, two families of priests to Demeter, continued the Eleusinian mysteries. Eumolpus' youngest son, Herald-Keryx who succeeded him in the priestly office, founded the lines.

Mythology regards Eumolpus as the founder of the Eleusinian mysteries, and as the first priest of Demeter and Dionysus; the goddess herself taught him, Triptolemus, Diocles, and Celeus, the sacred rites, and he is therefore sometimes described as having himself invented the cultivation of the vine and of fruit-trees in general.

Eumolpus was an excellent musician and singer; he played the aulos and the lyre. He won a musical contest in the funereal games of Pelias. Eumolpus was regarded as an ancient priestly bard, poems and writings on the mysteries were fabricated and circulated at a later time under his name. One hexameter line of a Dionysiac hymn, ascribed to him, is preserved in Diodorus. The legends connected him also with Heracles, whom he is said to have instructed in music, or initiated into the mysteries.

According to Diogenes Laërtius Eumolpus was the father of Musaeus. Lastly, according to Philochorus, Eumolpus was the father of the legendary poet Musaeus by the lunar goddess Selene.

The tomb of Eumolpus was shown both at Eleusis and Athens. The difference in the traditions about Eumolpus led some of the ancients to suppose that two or three persons of that name ought to be distinguished.

Vinzenz Brinkmann and Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann have identified a 5th-century bronze statue called Riace B as being a representation of Eumolpus.The fingers of the well-preserved statue indicate that the figure was originally carrying a bow and arrow, typical of Thracian warriors. … “ Wikipedia

Eumolpus a priest of demeter and founder of the Eleusinian Mysteries was probably from Nysa who were very wealthy Africans but also under the rule of Lord Pluto the lord of Hades - The purpose of the rites of Demeter were to ensure the harvest by retrieving Demeters daughter Persephone /Isis back from Hades who had kidnapped her and forced her into marriage.

After fondling the son, Encolpius reveals that he has somehow been cured of his impotence . He warns Eumolpus that, because the wealth he claims to have has not appeared, the patience of the legacy-hunters is running out.

Eumolpus's will is read to the legacy-hunters, who apparently now believe he is dead, and they learn they can inherit only if they consume his body. In the final passage preserved, historical examples of cannibalism are cited … “ Wikipedia

“ ... “... I have thought up a scheme," replied Eumolpus, "which
will embarrass our fortune-hunting friends sorely," and as he said this, he drew his tablets from his wallet and read his last wishes aloud, as follows:

"All who are down for legacies under my will, my freedmen only excepted, shall come into what I bequeath them subject to this condition, that they do cut my body into pieces and devour said pieces in sight of the crowd: nor need they be inordinately shocked for among some peoples, the law ordaining that the dead shall be devoured by their relatives is still in force; nay, even the sick are often abused because they render their
own flesh worse! I admonish my friends, by these presents, lest they refuse what I command, that they devour my carcass with as great relish as they damned my soul!"

Eumolpus had just started reading the first clauses when several of his most intimate friends entered the room and catching sight of the tablets in his hand in which was contained his last will
and testament, besought him earnestly to permit them to hear the contents.

He consented immediately and read the entire instrument from first to last. But when they had heard that extraordinary stipulation by which they were under the necessity of devouring his carcass, they were greatly cast down, but his reputation for enormous wealth dulled the eyes and brains of the wretches, and they were such cringing sycophants that they dared not complain of the outrage in his hearing.

One there was, nevertheless, named Gorgias, who was willing to comply, provided he did not have too long to wait!

To this, Eumolpus made answer:

"I have no fear that your stomach will turn, it will obey orders; if, for one hour of nausea you promise it a plethora of good things: just shut your eyes an d pretend that it's not human guts you've bolted, but ten million sesterces! And beside, we will find some condiment which will disguise the taste!

No flesh is palatable
of itself,
it must be
by art
and reconciled to
the unwilling stomach.
And, if you desire
to fortify the plan
by precedents,
the Saguntines
ate human flesh
when besieged
by Hannibal,
and they had
no legacy
in prospect!
In stress
of famine,
the inhabitants
of Petelia
did the same
and gained nothing
from the diet
except that
they were
not hungry!
When Numantia
was taken
by Scipio,
with the half-eaten
bodies of
their babes
in their
were found!
since it is only
the thought
of eating
human flesh
that makes
you squeamish,
you must try
to overcome
your aversion,
with all
your heart,
so that you may
come into
the immense
I have put
you down for!"

So carelessly did Eumolpus reel off these extravagances that the fortune- hunters began to lose faith in the validity of
his promises and subjected our words and actions to
a closer scrutiny immediately; their suspicions grew with their experience and they came to the conclusion that we were out and out grafters, and thereupon those who had been put to the greatest expense for our entertainment resolved to seize us and take it out in just revenge; but Chrysis, who was privy to all their scheming, informed me of the designs which the Crotonians had hatched; and when I heard this news, I was so terrified that I fled instantly, with Giton, and left Eumolpus to his fate.

I learned, a few days later, that the Crotonians, furious because
the old fox had lived so long and so sumptuously at the public expense, had put him to death in the Massilian manner. That you may comprehend what this means, know that whenever the Massilians were ravaged by the plague, one of the poor would offer himself to be fed for a whole year upon choice food at public charge; after which, decked out with olive branches and sacred vestments, he was led out through the entire city, loaded with imprecations so that he might take to himself the evils from which the city suffered, and then thrown headlong from the cliff. ... “

Boss lady in the saddle - Sacrificing to the Aversa Venus


In a penis locked Rome, women chased men for sex - In this scene from the Satyricon a servant girl of Circe, a high class lady approaches the gladiator for sex for her mistress - The servant tells him that he is not mistaken, high class ladies in Rome had a taste for low class men - but the servant girl herself only “sits” on high class men - Which I assume sacrificing to the Aversa Venus!

“ … Turning these possibilities over in my mind I left the house, in a state of black melancholy, hoping to revive my spirits in the fresh air, but scarcely had I set foot upon the public promenade when a girl, by no means homely, met me, and, calling me Polyaenos, the name I had assumed since my metamorphosis, informed me that her mistress desired leave to speak with me.

"You must be mistaken," I answered, in confusion, "I am only a servant and a stranger, and am by no means worthy of such an honor."

"You yourself," she replied, "are the one to whom I was sent but, because you are well aware of your good looks, you are proud and sell your favors instead of giving them.

What else can those wavy well-combed locks mean or that face, rouged and covered with cosmetics, or that languishing, wanton expression in your eyes?

Why that gait, so precise that not a footstep deviates from its place, unless you wish to show of your figure in order to sell your favors?

 Look at me, I know nothing about omens and I don't study the heavens like the astrologers, but I can read men's intentions in their faces and I know what a flirt is after when I see him out for a stroll; so if you'll sell us what I want there's a buyer ready, but if you will do the graceful thing and lend, let us be under obligations to you for the favor.

And as for your confession that you are only a common servant, by that you only fan the passion of the lady who burns for you, for some women will only kindle for canaille and cannot work up an appetite unless they see some slave or runner with his clothing girded up: a gladiator arouses one, or a mule-driver all covered with dust, or some actor posturing in some exhibition on the stage.

My mistress belongs to this class, she jumps the fourteen rows from the stage to the gallery and looks for a lover among the gallery gods at the back."

 Puffed up with this delightful chatter. "Come now, confess, won't you," I queried, "is this lady who loves me yourself?"

The waiting maid smiled broadly at this blunt speech. "Don't have such a high opinion of yourself," said she, "I've never given in to any servant yet; the gods forbid that I should ever throw my arms around a gallows-bird.

Let the married women see to that and kiss the marks of the scourge if they like: I'll sit upon nothing below a knight, even if I am only a servant."

I could not help marveling, for my part, at such discordant passions, and I thought it nothing short of a miracle that this servant should possess the hauteur of the mistress and the mistress the low tastes of the wench!

Each one will find what suits his taste, one thing is not for all,
One gathers roses as his share, another thorns enthrall.

After a little more teasing, I requested the maid to conduct her mistress to a clump of plane trees. 

Pleased with this plan, the girl picked up the skirt of her garment and turned into a laurel grove that bordered the path. After a short delay she brought her mistress from her hiding-place and conducted her to my side; a woman more perfect than any statue. There are no words with which to describe her form and anything I could say would fall far short.

Her hair, naturally wavy, flowed completely over her shoulders; her forehead was low and the roots of her hair were brushed back from it; her eyebrows, running from the very springs of her cheeks, almost met at the boundary line between a pair of eyes brighter than stars shining in a moonless night; her nose was slightly aquiline and her mouth was such an one as Praxiteles dreamed Diana had.

Her chin, her neck, her hands, the gleaming whiteness of her feet under a slender band of gold; she turned Parian marble dull!

Then, for the first time, 
Doris' tried lover
 thought lightly of Doris!
Oh Jove,
what's come to pass
that thou,
thine armor 
cast away
Art mute
 in heaven;
and but an idle tale?
At such a time 
the horns 
should sprout,
the raging bull 
hold sway,
Or the white hair 
beneath swan's
down conceal
Here's Diana's self!
But touch 
that lovely form
Thy limbs 
will melt 
thy passions'

More Boss lady in the saddle - Sacrificing to the Aversa Venus

The encounter with Circe does not go well - as the gladiator is in love with Giton - an eight year old boy - Which was the Roman pattern from Martial and the Greeks - Women chased men and men chased boys... All caused by the penis cage - The high eros of the Greco-Roman world was also the cause of the closeness of the gods - even to super intellectuals like Plato and Aristotle ...

Circe prescribes three days of sexual abstinence from Giton for a cure of the gladiators impotence - and her maid finds a crone priestess of the Temple of Priapus:

"Believe me, 'brother,' when I tell you that I do not know whether I am a man or not," I vainly protested;

"I do not feel like one, if I am! Dead and buried lies that part in which I was once an Achilles!"

Giton, seeing that I was completely enervated, and fearing that it might give cause for scandal if he were caught in this quiet place with me, tore himself away and fled into an inner part of the house. He had just gone when Chrysis entered the room and handed me her mistress's tablets, in which were written the following words:


Were I a wanton, I should complain of my disappointment, but as it is I am beholden to your impotence, for by it I dallied the longer in the shadow of pleasure. Still, I would like to know how you are and whether you got home upon your own legs, for the doctors say that one cannot walk without nerves!

Young man, I advise you to beware of paralysis for I never in
my life saw a patient in such great danger; you're as good as dead, I'm sure!

What if the same numbness should attack your hands and knees? You would have to send for the funeral trumpeters! Still, even if I have been affronted, I will not begrudge a prescription to one as sick as you!

Ask Giton if you would like to recover. I am sure you will get back your strength if you will sleep without your "brother" for three nights.

So far as I am concerned, I am not in the least alarmed about finding someone to whom I shall be as pleasing as I was to you; my mirror and my reputation do not lie.

Farewell if you can. "Such things will happen," said Chrysis, when she saw that I had read through the entire inditement, "and especially in this city, where the women can lure the moon from the sky!

But we'll find a cure for your trouble. Just return a diplomatic answer to my mistress and restore her self-esteem by frank courtesy for, truth to tell, she has never been herself from the minute she received that affront."

I gladly followed the maid's advice and wrote upon the tablets as follows:


Dear lady, I confess that I have often given cause for offense, for I am only a man, and a young one, too, but I never committed a deadly crime until today! You have my confession of guilt, I deserve any punishment you may see fit to prescribe.

I betrayed a trust, I murdered a man, I violated a temple: demand my punishment for these crimes. Should it be your pleasure to slay me I will come to you with my sword; if you are content with a flogging I will run naked to my mistress; only bear in mind that it was not myself but my tools that failed me. I was a soldier, and ready, but I had no arms.

What threw me into such disorder I do not know, perhaps
my imagination outran my lagging body, by aspiring to too much it is likely that I spent my pleasure in delay; I cannot imagine what the trouble was.

You bid me beware of paralysis; as if a disease which prevented my enjoying you could grow worse! But my apology amounts briefly to this; if you will grant me an opportunity of repairing my fault, I will give you satisfaction.
Farewell ... “

Bonus: Boss lady in the saddle - Sacrificing to the Aversa Venus

(Dec 17, 2022) Read in C. Kerenyi today the the “two goddesses” that the ancient Greeks spoke about - in for example the ‎Lysistrata - were Demeter and Persephone - Eleusis: Archetypal Image of Mother and Daughter (1963)

- According to Kerenyi the rites of Demeter were what held the ancient world together and a Roman Hierophant correctly predicted that the Greek world would end with soon after he left his religious office as the last Hierophant in the 5th century AD …

Demeter was said to have been the first initiate of the Mysteries - and they were supposed to provide a happy life after death …

The vulva of Baubo was a sexual component of the rites of Demeter - but the “leathern dildo” and Sacrificing to the Aversa Venus and the locked phallus of the Hierophant - which Kerenyi notes but disagrees with - were also components of the rites …As was the odd image of Demeter bathing the prince oF Eleusis in Ambrosia and depositing him into the flames …

As were the Libyan and Ethiopian origins of Eumolpus  the founder of the rites of Demeter - which Kerenyi simply skips altogether after noting the founders of the rites were not Athenians but natives of Thrace which was often at war with Athens and had exotic origins …


In this portion of the Satyricon Eumolpus an old poet bearing the name of the founder of the rites of Demeter leads the gladiator and his boy lover Giton into Crotona which is probably a stand-in for ancient Athens:

" ... We set out upon our intended journey, after this last office had been wholeheartedly performed, and, in a little while, arrived, sweating, at the top of a mountain, from which we made out, at no great distance, a town, perched upon the summit of a lofty eminence.

Wanderers as we were, we had no idea what town it could be, until we learned from a caretaker that it was Crotona, a very ancient city, and once the first in Italy. When we earnestly inquired, upon learning this,what men inhabited such historic ground, and the nature of the business in which they were principally engaged, now that their wealth had been dissipated by the oft recurring wars.

"My friends," replied he, "if you are men of business, change your plans and seek out some other conservative road to a livelihood, but if you can play the part of men of great culture, always ready with a lie, you are on the straight road to riches: The study of literature is held in no estimation in that city, eloquence has no niche there, economy and decent standards of morality come into no reward of honor there; you must know that every man whom you will meet in that city belongs to one of two factions; they either 'take-in,' or else they are 'taken-in.'

No one brings up children in that city, for the reason that no one who has heirs is invited to dinner or admitted to the games; such an one is deprived of all enjoyments and must lurk with the rabble.

On the other hand, those who have never married a wife, or those who have no near relatives, attain to the very highest honors; in other words, they are the only ones who are considered soldierly, or the bravest of the brave, or even good.

You will see a town which resembles the fields in time of pestilence," he continued, "in which there is nothing but carcasses to be torn at and carrion crows tearing at them."

Eumolpus, who had a deeper insight, turned this state of affairs over in his mind and declared that he was not displeased with a prospect of that kind.

I thought the old fellow was joking in the care-free way of poets, until he complained, "If I could only put up a better front! I mean that I wish my clothing was in better taste, that my jewelry was more expensive; all this would lend color to my deception: I would not carry this scrip, by Hercules, I would not I would lead you all to great riches!"

For my part, I undertook to supply whatever my companion in robbery had need of, provided he would be satisfied with the garment, and with whatever spoils the villa of Lycurgus had yielded when we robbed it; as for money against present needs, the Mother of the Gods would see to that, out of regard to her own good name!

"Well, what's to prevent our putting on an extravaganza?" demanded Eumolpus. "Make me the master if the business appeals to you."

No one ventured to condemn a scheme by which he could lose nothing, and so, that the lie would be kept safe among us all, we swore a solemn oath, the words of which were dictated by Eumolpus, to endure fire, chains, flogging, death by the sword, and whatever else Eumolpus might demand of us, just like regular gladiators!

After the oath had been taken, we paid our respects to our master with pretended servility, and were informed that Eumolpus had lost a son, a young man of great eloquence and promise, and that it was for this reason the poor old man had left his native land that he might not see the companions and clients of his son, nor even his tomb, which was the cause of his daily tears.

To this misfortune a recent shipwreck had been added, in which he had lost upwards of two millions of sesterces; not that
he minded the loss but, destitute of a train of servants he could not keep up his proper dignity!

Furthermore, he had, invested in Africa, thirty millions of sesterces in estates and bonds; such a horde of his slaves was scattered over the fields of Numidia that he could have even sacked Carthage!

We demanded that Eumolpus cough frequently, to further this scheme, that he have trouble with his stomach and find fault with all the food when in company, that he keep talking of gold and silver and estates, the incomes from which were not what they should be, and of the everlasting unproductiveness of the soil; that he cast up his accounts daily, that he revise the terms of his will monthly, and, for fear any detail should be lacking to make the farce complete, he was to use the wrong names whenever he wished to summon any of us, so that it would be plain to all that the master had in mind some who were not present.

When everything had been thus provided for, we offered a prayer to the gods "that the matter might turn out well and happily," and took to the road. But Giton could not bear up under his unaccustomed load, and the hired servant Corax,
a shirker of work, often put down his own load and cursed our haste, swearing that he would either throw his packs away or run away with his load. "What do you take me for, a beast of burden?" he grumbled, "or a scow for carrying stone? I hired out to do the work of a man, not that of a pack-horse, and I'm as free as you are, even if my father did leave me poor!"

Not satisfied with swearing, he lifted up his leg from time to time and filled the road with an obscene noise and a filthy stench. Giton laughed at his impudence and imitated every explosion with his lips, but Eumolpus relapsed into his usual vein, even in spite of this.

"Young men," said he, "many are they who have been seduced by poetry; for, the instant a man has composed a verse in feet, and has woven a more delicate meaning into it by means of circumlocutions, he straightway concludes that he has scaled Helicon!

Take those who are worn out by the distressing detail of the legal profession, for example: they often seek sanctuary in the tranquillity of poetry, as a more sheltered haven, believing themselves able more easily to compose a poem than a rebuttal charged with scintillating epigrams!

But a more highly cultivated mind loves not this conceited affectation, nor can it either conceive or bring forth, unless it has been steeped in the vast flood of literature.

Every word that is what I would call 'low,' ought to be avoided,
and phrases far removed from plebeian usage should be chosen. Let 'Ye rabble rout avaunt,' be your rule.

In addition, care should be exercised in preventing the epigrams from standing out from the body of the speech; they should gleam with the brilliancy woven into the fabric.

Homer is an example, and the lyric poets, and our Roman Virgil, and the exquisite propriety of Horace. Either the others did
not discover the road that leads to poetry, or, having seen, they feared to tread it. Whoever attempts that mighty theme, the civil war, for instance, will sink under the load unless he is saturated with literature.

Events, past and passing, ought not to be merely recorded in verse, the historian will deal with them far better; by means of circumlocutions and the intervention of the immortals, the free spirit, wracked by the search for epigrams having a mythological illusion should plunge headlong and appear as the prophecy of a mind inspired rather than the attested faith of scrupulous exactitude in speech. ...

- That's the object of the rites of Demeter - a return of Isis from the clutches of an African god! - The center of the Mysteries of Eleusis cannot be separated from black Africa like Károly C. Kerényi and G. Gordon Wesson have done in their grand surveys of the rites of Demeter


“ … Károly Kerényi’s scientific interpretation of the figures of Greek mythology as archetypes of the human soul was in line with the approach of the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. Together with Jung, he endeavored to establish mythology as a science in its own right. Jung described Kerényi as having "supplied such a wealth of connections [of psychology] with Greek mythology that the cross-fertilization of the two branches of science can no longer be doubted." Kerényi compiled in collaboration with Jung the two editions Das göttliche Kind in mythologischer und psychologischer Beleuchtung (The Myths of the Divine Child) and Das göttliche Mädchen (The Divine Maiden), which were published together under the title Einführung in das Wesen der Mythologie (Essays on a Science of Mythology) in 1941. Kerényi saw the theory of religion as a human and humanistic topic which coined his reputation as humanist further.

So for him, every view of mythology had to be a view of man – and hence theology always had to be at the same time, anthropology. In this humanist spirit, Kerényi defined himself as philological-historical as well as psychological scholar. In later years, Kerényi evolved his psychological interpretation further and replaced the concept of archetypes with one that he labeled ’Urbild’. This became particularly clear in some of his most important publications: Prometheus, as well as in Dionysos, likely Kerényi’s most crucial work, which he had started as an idea in 1931 and finished writing in 1969. Kerényi hence looked at the appearances in Greek religion not as curiosities, but as expressions of real human experience. As a historian of myth as it was embedded in the details of Hellenic culture, its "characteristic social existence" as he put it, Kerényi opposed his "differentiated thinking about the concrete realities of human life" with the "summary thinking" that represented for him the influence of Sir James Frazer on the study of the peoples of antiquity and Greek religion especially. … “ Wikipedia

Prior to reading C. Kerenyi, I always assumed Hierophant was an Egyptian office - and maybe it was! - Whenever we see Ethiopians or other black Africans in Roman togas - they are probably linked to the rites of Demeter


“ … A hierophant ... is a person who brings religious congregants into the presence of that which is deemed holy. As such, a hierophant is an interpreter of sacred mysteries and arcane principles.

The word comes from ancient Greece, where it was constructed from the combination of ta hiera ('the holy') and phainein ('to show').

In Attica, Hierophant was the title of the chief priest at the Eleusinian Mysteries. It was an office inherited within the Philaidae or Eumolpidae families.

The office of Hierophant, High Priestess and Dadouchousa Priestess were all inherited within the Philaidae or Eumolpidae families, and the Hierophant and the High Priestess were of equal rank.

 It was the task of the High Priestess to impersonate the roles of the goddesses Demeter and Persephone in the enactment during the Mysteries.

Eunapius and Vettius Agorius Praetextatus are notable examples. … “ Wikipedia


Vettius Agorius Praetextatus (ca. 315 – 384) was a wealthy pagan aristocrat in the 4th-century Roman Empire, and a high priest in the cults of numerous gods. He served as the praetorian prefect at the court of Emperor Valentinian II in 384 until his death that same year.

His life is primarily known through the works of Quintus Aurelius Symmachus and Ammianus Marcellinus, supplemented by some epigraphical records.

Symmachus (345 c. – 402 c.) was a leading member of the senatorial aristocracy of his time and the best orator of his age. Symmachus' letters, speeches and relations have been preserved and testify a sincere friendship between Symmachus and Praetextatus: according to Symmachus, Praetextatus was a good magistrate and a virtuous man.

Ammianus Marcellinus, writing in the early 390s, tells about Praetextatus in three passages of his Res Gestae: in all of them Ammianus shows appreciation of Praetextatus' actions, while the same author is usually critical about the members of the Senate; for this reason some historians think Ammianus and Praetextatus knew each other.

Several inscriptions referring to Praetextatus have been preserved, and among them the most important is the one on the funerary monument to Praetextatus and his wife Aconia Fabia Paulina; other information is provided in some laws addressed to Praetextatus as praefectus urbi and praetorian prefect, and preserved in the Theodosian Code; in addition, there are some letters addressed to him by Emperor Valentinian III about a religious dispute and preserved in the Collectio Avellana.

Jerome (347–420), a Christian writer and theologian, knew the Roman aristocracy through his acquaintances among the Roman matrons. He wrote about Praetextatus in two letters  and in his polemic Contra Ioannem Hierosolymitanum (397); the sorrow caused by the death of Praetextatus was so diffused among his acquaintances that Jerome wrote a letter to a matron in which he wrote that Praetextatus was in hell.

A different kind of source is represented by the philosopher and writer Macrobius Ambrosius Theodosius, who made Praetextatus the main character of his Saturnalia, a book describing the pagan renaissance of the late 4th century. However the Saturnalia was written half a century after Praetextatus' death, so his description is highly idealised.

Finally, two later historians wrote about Praetextatus. The first is Zosimus, a pagan historian who lived in the first half of the 6th century and author of the Historia Nova, who described Praetextatus as a defender of the Hellenic cults in Greece; the second historian is Joannes Laurentius Lydus, who lived in the second half of the 6th century, and who talks about a hierophant named Praetextatus, but this identification is uncertain.

… Praetextatus' birthday is unknown, but the sources show he was born before Quintus Aurelius Symmachus and Virius Nicomachus Flavianus. They also state that in 384, the year of his death, Praetextatus had been married to his wife Aconia Fabia Paulina for forty years; if Paulina was his first wife and if they married when he was twenty/twenty-five years old, as was customary among the senatorial aristocracy, his birth can be assumed between 314 and 319. According to Joannes Lydus, however, a "Praetextatus the hierophant" and the Neo-platonic philosopher Sopater of Apamea participated to the polismós ceremony during the foundation of Constantinople, around 330. As aristocrats took sacerdotal roles very young, it is possible that this Praetextatus was Vettius Agorius, who actually was Pontifex Vestae; in this case, he would have been born between 310 and 324.

As regards Praetextatus' family, sources are silent and only hypotheses can be drawn. Gaius Vettius Cossinus Rufinus (Praefectus urbi of Rome in 315–316) could have been his father, both because of their names and because they followed a similar career (corrector Tusciae et Umbriae, proconsul Achaiae, pontifex Solis and augur): in the senatorial aristocracy, the sons often held the same political, administrative and religious positions as their fathers. However, many years separated their careers (Praetextatus was praefectus urbi in 367), so it has been proposed that Cossinus Rufinus was the father of Vettius Rufinus (consul in 323) and the latter was Praetextatus' father.

Nonetheless, we know that Praetextatus' family was ancient and noble, and therefore he possessed a network of relationships with other members of the senatorial aristocracy, a network that was used also to gain advantages. His acquaintances included Quintus Aurelius Symmachus, his father Lucius Aurelius Avianius Symmachus, Virius Nicomachus Flavianus and probably the senators Volusius Venustus and Minervius.  An example of this network of relationships is the very wedding between Praetextatus and his wife Aconia Fabia Paulina, celebrated around 344 (they had been married for 40 years in 384); Paulina, in fact, was the daughter of Aconius Catullinus Philomatius, Praefectus urbi in 342–344 and Consul in 349. They had at least one son, recalled in the funeral eulogy and the author of an inscription in honour of his father, dated to shortly after his death and found in their home on the Aventine. Even if most historians identify the commissioner of the inscription with a son, this could be also a daughter, maybe the Praetextata cited by Jerome. Finally, Vettius Agorius Basilius Mavortius, consul in 527 and with a similar interest in literature, could have been his great-grandson.

The tomb of Praetextatus and of his wife Aconia Fabia Paulina, conserved at the Musei Capitolini, records his cursus honorum.
Praetextatus held several religious positions: pontifex of Vesta and Sol, augur, tauroboliatus, curialis of Hercules, neo corus, hierophant, priest of Liber and of the Eleusinian mysteries. He also held several political and administrative positions: he was quaestor, corrector Tusciae et Umbriae, Governor of Lusitania, Proconsul of Achaea, praefectus urbi in 384 and was praetorian prefect of Italy and Illyricum, as well as consul designated for the year 385, an honour he did not achieve because he died in late 384.

In 370, several senators were tried for alleged magic practices by
prefect Maximinus; Praetextatus led a senatorial legation to emperor Valentinian I, including Volusius Venustus and Minervius, charged with asking Valentinian to forgo torture for those senators involved in trials; the three of them were allowed in the presence of the Emperor, who denied having given such a disposition, but, thanks to the influence of the quaestor Eupraxius, the rights of the senators were restored.

While holding the office of praefectus urbi, he gave back to the Bishop of Rome, Damasus, the basilica of Sicininus and had the other bishop, Ursicinus, expelled from Rome, thus restoring peace in the city, even if he granted an amnesty to the followers of the defeated bishop. His justice was celebrated; he had removed those private structures that were built against pagan temples (the so-called maeniana) and distributed within the whole city uniform and verified weights and measures. He also restored the Porticus Deorum Consentium in the Roman Forum.

After his death, the Emperor asked the Roman Senate for a copy of all his speeches, while the Vestal Virgins proposed to the Emperor that they be allowed to erect statues in his honour.

Praetextatus was one of the last political supporters of the res divina, the Roman religion, in Late Antiquity; he was particularly devoted to Vesta, as was his wife. Praetextatus was friend with another major figure of the pagan aristocracy, Quintus Aurelius Symmachus, with whom he exchanged letters partially conserved. According to Jerome, in reference to Bishop Damasus' luxurious lifestyle, he joked to him "Make me bishop of Rome and I will become a Christian".

During his office as Proconsul of Achaea he appealed against an edict by Emperor Valentinian I (issued in 364) that forbade night sacrifices during the Mysteries: Praetextatus maintained that this edict made it impossible for pagans to keep their faith, and Valentinian nullified his own edict.

In 367, during his tenure as praefectus urbi, he oversaw the restoration of the Porticus Deorum Consentium in the Roman
Forum (41°53′33.2′′N 12°29′1.27′′E), the last great monument devoted to a pagan cult in Rome. Even if this was a simple restoration of the damaged statues and a renovation of the worship, it was a symbolic choice, as the Di Consentes were the protectors of the Senate, and therefore used to balance the power of the Emperor (it is significant that the inscription does not mention the Emperor). It has been also proposed that the restoration of the cult of the Di Consentes appealed to Praetextatus as a propagation of "his ideology of the numen multiplex" cited in his funerary poem.

A few years before his death, while his friend Symmachus was praefectus urbi, Praetextatus held an important ceremony, a pagan ascent to the Capitolium, an event that is recorded by Jerome: Praetextatus ascended, preceded by the highest magistrates, in a ceremony that was not a triumph, but which was really close to a pagan triumphal ceremony.

In 384, during his tenure as praetorian prefect, he obtained from Valentinian II an edict about the persecution of the crimes of demolition of pagan temples and the attribution of the related investigations to the praefectus urbi of Rome (who, at that time, was his friend Symmachus). Praetextatus' policy of restoration of the ancient Roman religion hit the Christian members of the imperial court (at Milan) and possibly it was for this reason that Symmachus, as friend and ally of Praetextatus, was falsely accused of torturing Christian priests: Symmachus responded that he was authorised by Praetextatus on the basis of the imperial edict and even Damasus supported him.

Praetextatus and Paulina had a palace located at the corner of via Merulana and viale del Monte Oppio (41°53′39.83′′N 12°29′59.09′′E) in Rome, on the place of the modern Palazzo Brancaccio. The garden around the palace, the so-called Horti Vettiani, extended to the modern Roma Termini railway station. Archaeological investigations in this area brought out several discoveries related to Praetextatus' family. Among them there is the base of a statue dedicated to Coelia Concordia, one of the last Vestal Virgins, who had erected a statue in honour of Praetextatus after his death; the latter statue was criticised by Symmachus, who wrote a letter to Flavianus saying he opposed this erection because that was the first time that the Virgins had erected a statue to a man, even if pontifex. ... “ Wikipedia

No names are suggested but its a safe assumption she was always one of the Vestal Virgins - The virgins guarded the fire of Vesta and after 30 years of celibacy - ages 6 to 36 usually - they were married off to a Roman aristocrat

- That’s probably when they became a phallic High Priestess of the rites of Demeter - Roman marriage was the matron locking up and taking custody the phallus of her husband

A candidate for  High Priestess of Demeter was probably  Aconia Fabia Paulina the wife of the Hierophant Praetextatus :

“… They also state that in 384, the year of his death, Praetextatus had been married to his wife Aconia Fabia Paulina for forty years; if Paulina was his first wife and if they married when he was twenty/twenty-five years old, as was customary among the senatorial aristocracy, his birth can be assumed between 314 and 319. … “ Wikipedia


“ … Aconia Fabia Paulina (died c. 384) was an aristocratic Roman woman, the daughter of Aconius Catullinus Philomatius, who was consul in 349. In 344 she married Vettius Agorius Praetextatus. Paulina was initiated into the Eleusinian mysteries and was a priestess of Hecate and of the Magna Mater.

Paulina was the daughter of Aconius Catullinus Philomatius, a prominent aristocrat who held the offices of Praefectus urbi of Rome in 342-344 and was Consul in 349. In 344, Paulina married Vettius Agorius Praetextatus, a prominent exponent of the Roman senatorial aristocracy, an important imperial officer and a member of several pagan circles; Paulina was initiated into the Eleusinian mysteries and to the Lernian mysteries of Dionysus and Demeter, was devoted to several female deities, such as Ceres, Hecate (of whom she was hierophant), the Magna Mater (as a tauroboliata) and Isis.

Praetextatus and Paulina owned at least two houses. The first was on the Esquiline Hill, probably situated between via Merulana and viale del Monte Oppio in Rome, where the modern Palazzo Brancaccio stands (41°53′39.83″N 12°29′59.09″E). The garden around the palace, the so-called Horti Vettiani, extended to the modern Roma Termini railway station.

Archaeological investigations in this area brought out several discoveries related to Praetextatus' family. Among them was the base of a statue dedicated to Coelia Concordia, one of the last Vestal Virgins, who had erected a statue in honour of Praetextatus after his death (384); in exchange for this honour Paulina dedicated a statue to Concordia. They also had a house on the Aventine Hill.

On the base of the funerary monument to Pratextatus, Paulina had a poem composed by herself inscribed, which celebrated her husband and their love, a poem probably derived by the oration read by Paulina at her husband's funeral. This poem is cited by Jerome in a letter in which he mocks Praetextatus, claiming he was not in paradise but in hell.

Paulina died shortly after her husband. Their son or daughter dedicated them a funerary monument with statues in their house. … “ Wikipedia

The phallus of Dionysus was carried by Roman and Greek women during rites of Dionysus - According to Clement of Alexandria it was for insertion on the male rear - the Roman and Greek phallus was locked:

“ ….The story of Dionysos and Prosymnos

Clement records another, even filthier story in Exhortation to the Hellenes 2.30. He begins his account by describing with disgust how people would dedicate φαλλοi (i.e., models of human penises, which were essentially dildos) to the god Dionysos.
Clement then proceeds to narrate the story that Greek people told about the supposed origin of these model penises. Clement, being very Christian and averse to describing sexual matters in too much detail, tries to narrate the story in the most discrete manner he possibly can. It is, however, fairly obvious what he is actually describing. Here is Clement’s account of the story, as translated by William Wilson:

“But those contests and phalloi consecrated to Dionysos were a world’s shame, pervading life with their deadly influence. For Dionysos, eagerly desiring to descend to Hades, did not know the way; a man, by name Prosymnos, offers to tell him, not without reward. The reward was a disgraceful one, though not so in the opinion of Dionysos: it was an Aphrodisian favour that was asked of Dionysos as a reward. The god was not reluctant to grant the request made to him, and promises to fulfil it should he return, and confirms his promise with an oath.”

“Having learned the way, he departed and again returned: he did not find Prosymnos, for he had died. In order to acquit himself of his promise to his lover, he rushes to his tomb, and burns with unnatural lust. Cutting a fig-branch that came to his hand, he shaped the phallos, and so performed his promise to the dead man. As a mystic memorial of this incident, phalloi are raised aloft in honour of Dionysos through the various cities.”

For those who haven’t picked up on what Clement is saying, I’ll be more explicit: Dionysos was looking for a way into the Underworld. A man named Prosymnos offered to tell him how to get into the Underworld under the condition that, if he told him, Dionysos would allow him to anally penetrate him once he returned. Dionysos eagerly agreed to this arrangement, but, when he came back, he found that Prosymnos was already dead, so, in order to fulfill his promise to him, he carved a dildo out of a fig branch and anally masturbated himself on Prosymnos’s grave.

Once again, Clement’s Exhortation to the Hellenes is the earliest surviving ancient source that tells the story of Dionysos anally masturbating on Prosymnos’s grave. The only other ancient writer who mentions the story is Arnobius of Sicca in his Adversus Nationes 5.28, but his account is clearly based on Clement’s and he only mentions it because Clement mentioned it first. This means that, once again, the only reason why this story has survived to the present day is because Clement retold it in order to prove just how perverted Greek mythology was.

Baubo was the mother of Eumolpus - the founder of the rites of Eleusis - That would make her a Thracian princess - and in my opinion a black African princess too - She was from the land of the black swastika coins listed earlier - My guess is she was a goddess - maybe Hathor who similarly roused a god from a depression with a reveal of her vulva.

There is speculation that Baubo may also have had a penis and that’s what caused Demeter to laugh - But most images of Baubo just feature her vulva:

“ … Some of what we know of Baubo comes from the pen of Clement of Alexandria. Clement was a Greek Christian writer of anti-pagan rants in the second century of the Common Era. However, his diatribes often contained revealing information about pagan beliefs—mainly in his misinterpretations of the pagan Orphic mysteries of ancient Greece.

The Orphic mysteries reveal that Baubo was married to a swine herder. That doesn’t sound like much today, but it was considered quite a lucrative occupation in ancient times. Baubo also had a son named Eumolpos, who is described as a “sweet singer.” The high order of priests officiating at the festival of the Eleusian mysteries claimed descent from Eumolpos. High priestesses participating in this festival did as well.

Was Baubo A Transgender?
From the ambiguous nature of the surviving information about Baubo, some scholars have concluded she was perhaps a hermaphrodite. Possibly transgendered in some other way. According to some interpretations of Clement’s writings, Baubo, when she lifted her skirt to Demeter, revealed body parts “inappropriate to a woman.”

The possibility that Baubo may have had male or male-like genitalia has been suggested as the main reason that Demeter suddenly became happy upon seeing this sight. In ancient times, hermaphroditism had profound religious significance. 

It represented the unification of seemingly opposite and irreconcilable things. Whether those things were male and female or life and death. For Demeter, a woman who was worried that her daughter might be dead, this realization would have been extremely comforting. …. “ Baubo: Greek Goddess Of Humor- October 27, 2022 by Liz Turnbull

" ... The secret of the Lernaean spring was the gift of Poseidon when he lay with the "blameless" daughter of Danaus, Amymone. The geographer Strabo attests that the Lernaean waters were considered healing:

Lake Lerna, the scene of the story of the Hydra, lies in Argeia and the Mycenaean territory; and on account of the cleansings that take place in it there arose a proverb, 'A Lerna of ills.' Now writers agree that the county has plenty of water, and that, although the city itself lies in a waterless district, it has an abundance of wells. These wells they ascribe to the daughters of Danaus, believing that they discovered them ... but they add that four of the wells not only were designated as sacred but are especially revered, thus introducing the false notion that there is a lack of water where there is an abundance of it.

Lerna was one of the entrances to the Underworld, and the ancient Lernaean Mysteries, sacred to Demeter, were celebrated there. Pausanias (2.37.1) says that the mysteries were initiated by Philammon, the twin "other" of Autolycus. Heroes could gain entry to the netherworld via the Alcyonian Lake. Prosymnus aided Dionysus in his search for his mother Semele by guiding him to this entrance. For mortals the lake was perilous; Pausanias writes:

There is no limit to the depth of the Alcyonian Lake, and I know of nobody who by any contrivance has been able to reach the bottom of it since not even Nero, who had ropes made several stades long and fastened them together, tying lead to them, and omitting nothing that might help his experiment, was able to discover any limit to its depth. This, too, I heard. The water of the lake is, to all appearance, calm and quiet but, although it is such to look at, every swimmer who ventures to cross it is dragged down, sucked into the depths, and swept away.

At Lerna, Plutarch knew (Isis and Osiris), Dionysus was summoned as "Bugenes", "son of the Bull" with a strange archaic trumpet called a salpinx, while a lamb was cast into the waters as an offering for the "Keeper of the Gate." The keeper of the gate to the Underworld that lay in the waters of Lerna was the Hydra. … “ Wikipedia

Chaste female phallus sex in a tomb as narrated by Eumolpus in the Satryicon - Tombs were a common place for sex hungry women to have sex in Martial’s epigrams - and it was female phallus sex - probably linked to religious rites of Demeter and Osiris:


You always
take your pleasure,
with doors
unguarded and open,
nor are you
at any pains
to conceal
your amusements.
It is more
the spectator,
than the
in your doings,
that pleases you,
nor are
any pleasures
grateful to
your taste
if they
be secret.
Yet the
common courtesan
every witness
by curtain
and by bolt,
and few
are the chinks
in a
suburban brothel.
Learn something
at least
of modesty
from Chione,
or from Alis:
even the
edifices of the dead
afford hiding-places
for abandoned harlots.
Does my censure
seem too harsh?
I do not exhort you
to be chaste,
but not to be caught. … “

- A grieving widow was starving herself to death in her husbands tomb when a soldier and her maid convinced her to return to life by having chaste sex with the soldier - That was certainly a scene from the rites of Demeter and the chaste sex was the mentule in the penis caged soldiers rear!:

“ ... But in a little while, Eumolpus, mouthpiece of the distressed and author of the present good understanding, fearing that
the general good humor might flag for lack of amusement, began to indulge in sneers at the fickleness of women: how easily they fell in love; how readily they forgot even their own sons! No woman could be so chaste but that she could not be roused to madness by a chance passion!

Nor had he need to quote from old tragedies, or to have recourse to names, notorious for centuries; on the contrary, if we cared to hear it, he would relate an incident which had occurred within his own memory, whereupon, as we all turned our faces towards him and gave him our attention, he began as follows:

"There was a certain married lady at Ephesus, once upon a time, so noted for her chastity that she even drew women from
the neighboring states to come to gaze upon her! When she carried out her husband she was by no means content to comply with the conventional custom and follow the funeral cortege with her hair down, beating her naked breast in sight of the onlookers!

She followed the corpse, even into the tomb; and when the body had been placed in the vault, in accordance with the Greek custom,she began to stand vigil over it, weeping day and night!

Neither parents nor relations could divert her from punishing herself in this manner and from bringing on death by starvation. The magistrates, the last resort, were rebuffed and went away, and the lady, mourned by all as an unusual example, dragged through the fifth day without nourishment.

A most faithful maid was in attendance upon the poor woman; she either wept in company with the afflicted one or replenished the lamp which was placed in the vault, as the occasion required.

Throughout the whole city there was but one opinion, men of every calling agreed that here shone the one solitary example of chastity and of love!

In the meantime the governor of the province had ordered some robbers crucified near the little vault in which the lady was bewailing her recent loss. On the following night, a soldier who was standing guard over the crosses for fear someone might drag down one of the bodies for burial, saw a light shining brightly among the tombs, and heard the sobs of someone grieving.

A weakness common to mankind made him curious to know who was there and what was going on, so he descended into the tomb and, catching sight of a most beautiful woman, he stood still, afraid at first that it was some apparition or spirit from the infernal regions; but he finally comprehended the true state of affairs as his eye took in the corpse lying there, and as he noted the tears and the face lacerated by the finger-nails, he understood that the lady was unable to endure the loss of the dear departed.

He then brought his own scanty ration into the vault and exhorted the sobbing mourner not to persevere in useless grief, or rend her bosom with unavailing sobs; the same end awaited us all, the same last resting place: and other platitudes by
which anguished minds are recalled to sanity.
