In Greek mythology, Silenus was companion and tutor to the wine god Dionysus. He is typically older than Satyrs of Dionysian retinue, and sometimes considerably older, in which case he may be referred to as Papposilenus. Plural Sileni refers to a mythological figure as a type that is sometimes thought to be differentiated from satyr by having attributes of horse rather than goat, though usage of two words is not consistent enough to permit sharp distinction.

Evolution of the character

The original Silenus resembles folkloric man of the forest, with the ears of a horse and sometimes also the tail and legs of a horse. Later, sileni were drunken followers of Dionysus, usually bald and fat with thick lips and squat noses, and having legs of human. Later still, plural sileni went out of use and only references were to one individual named Silenus, teacher and faithful companion of wine-god Dionysus. A notorious consumer of wine, he was usually drunk and had to be supported by satyrs or carried by a donkey. Silenus was described as the oldest, wisest and most drunken of followers of Dionysus, and was said in Orphic hymns to be the young god's tutor. This put him in the company of phallic or half-animal tutors of gods, group that includes Priapus, Hermaphroditus, Cedalion and Chiron, but also includes Pallas, tutor of Athena. When intoxicated, Silenus was said to possess special knowledge and power of prophecy. Phrygian King Midas was eager to learn from Silenus and catch the old man by lacing a fountain with wine from which Silenus often drink. As Silenus falls asleep, King's servants seize him and take him to their master. Alternative story was that when lose and wandering in Phrygia, Silenus was rescued by peasants and taken to Midas, who treated him kindly. In return for Midas' hospitality, Silenus tells him some tales and the King, enchanted by Silenus' fictions, entertains him for five days and nights. Dionysus offered Midas a reward for his kindness towards Silenus, and Midas chose the power to turn everything he touched into gold. Another story was that Silenus had been captured by two shepherds, and regaled them with wondrous tales. In Euripides's satyr play Cyclops, Silenus is strand with satyrs in Sicily, where they have been enslave by Cyclopes. They are comic elements of story, parody of Homer's Odyssey IX. Silenus refers to satyrs as his children during play. Silenus may have become a Latin term of abuse around 211 BC, when it was used in Plautus ' Rudens to describe Labrax, treacherous pimp or leno, as. Pot-belly old Silenus, bald head, beefy, bushy eyebrows, scowling, twister, god-forsaken criminal. In his satire Caesars, emperor Julian has Silenus sitting next to gods to offer up his comments on various rulers under examination, including Alexander Great, Julius Caesar, Augustus, Marcus Aurelius, and Constantine I. Silenus commonly figures in Roman bas-reliefs of train of Dionysus, subject for sarcophagi, embodying transcendent promises of Dionysian cult.
