Thracian votive bas relief, Greece, Macedonia, Melnik, 21 S AD, marble. Musée d'Art et d'Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap Pro. The god Asdules, assimilated to Dionysus, gallops in front of a gigantic vine populated with harvesters loves. He grabs the beard of Pan who follows him. Before him, Silenus, hairy body, vintage. The dedication to the god is formulated by the owners (or stewards) and workers of a Thracian wine estate. "Claudianos Pyrrhos and Pyrrhos, son of Landros, and their servants, to the god Asdules, in the year 246". For more updates, please consider to follow me on Twitter at @GeoffreyMarchal.
