In Greek mythology and religion, the thiasus (Greek thiasos), was the ecstatic retinue of Dionysus, often pictured as inebriated revelers. Many of the myths of Dionysus are connected with his arrival in the form of a procession. The grandest such version was his triumphant return from “India”, which influenced symbolic conceptions of the Roman triumph and was narrated in rapturous detail in Nonnus’ Dionysiaca.
