Path of the Maenad

The maenads are followers of Dionysus. They wield the thyrsos, a staff that is crowned with ivy, and wear the skin of a panther, a beast loved by Dionysus for being among the most excitable of animals. The Maenads also put a snake over their locks, for Zeus crowned his son with snakes when he let him come out of his thigh.
