Baccante - Female followers of Bacchus, they used to celebrate the god by singing, dancing and wandering like animals. Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication. Historically The term maenad has come to be associated to women who worship the god, while Bacchantes had a true devotion for him. Often they are portraited with satyrs.
