The painter Titian reproduces a picture the writer Philostratus saw in Naples in the second century AD. The subject of this painting refers to the arrival of Bacchus on the island of Andros, his followers await him in varying degrees of inebriation, as they drink from the island's river flowing not with water, but with wine. The god himself is not present, but his ship can be glimpsed in the distance and the Bacchanalian essence is exalted in the flask of wine held unsteadily aloft.
