Bacchus is the Roman god of wine and intoxication (equated with the Greek Dionysus). “Bacchanalia,” or orgies in honor of Dionysus, were introduced in Rome around 200 BCE but eventualy got so out of hand that they were forbidden by the Roman Senate in 186 BCE. Roughly 2,000 years later, Bacchus made an appearance in the courtroom of U.S. Judge William H. Pauley III of the Southern District of New York.
