Thyrsus in Greek mythology was the ritual component of Dionysus and his escort, the Maenads Satyra and others. It was a small rectilinear stick of natural origin, and is a clown from a plant, perhaps from fennel or narthex, with a tufted blossom on its top. It is often depicted by a ribbon or braided with vine leaves. At the top is crowned with ivy, vine leaves, or a pine-pine-tree pine. The length of the trunk varies considerably, from 30 cm to 2 meters.
