Description In Hellenistic and Roman art, Dionysus is shown as a beardless youth, contrasting with his appearance on vases. The god is represented here leaning drunkenly on a member of his entourage while still holding his drinking rhyton (horn-shaped cup).
Dionysis and the Satyr has active chloride corrosion. The local spots of corrosion were treated by applying 3% benzotriazole, a copper corrosion inhibitor, in ethanol.
