Pentheus didn't take kindly to the god Dionysus, who advocated wild partying and hedonism.

As punishment, Dionysus came to Thebes and hypnotized Pentheus into wearing women's clothing. But the fun doesn't stop there.

It will be clear from our discussion so far that the Pentheus episode lies at the heart of Ovid’s Theban narrative in a number of important respects.

The setting for this episode is the city of Thebes, which, as we have seen, was founded by Cadmus, after his search for his abducted sister Europa proved fruitless Cadmus is now an old man, and has abdicated the throne of his city in favour Author: Ingo Gildenhard, Andrew Zissos.

Much of what is known about the character comes from the interpretation of the myth in Euripides' tragic play, The s: Echion and Agave. Yep, the water symbolically transforms him into a free, innocent man. In Actaeon 's case, the water doesn't come from the heavens, but from Artemis's pond.

The famuli return, not with Bacchus, as Pentheus had ordered, but with a different prisoner — or so it would seem.
