In the 5th century A.D., Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt produced this epic recounting the earthly career of Dionysus from his birth at Thebes to his reception on Olympus. Nonnos tells of the god's role as a conqueror of the East, notably his invasion of India, and also describes his amorous adventures in a sensual and explicit style. The poem is full of mythological, magical, and astrological lore; and its portrayal of Dionysiac frenzy seems to reflect religious awe.
