The images of Dionysus are some of the most popular in Greek vase painting. The diversity of this god is a result of the complexity of his character and his different faces with which Greek painters present him on vases. Descriptions of his appearance, clothing and attributes are short and occur sporadically in archaic and classical written sources. Dionysus is one of the most popular and diverse deities represented in Thrace. The analysis of the god’s images on vases, discovered mainly in the Greek colonies along the Black Sea coast as well as in the neighbouring regions, shows that all aspects of the Dionysian imagery existed in Thrace and evidence the main iconographic trends in the Greek vase painting in the Archaic and the Classical period.
