Dionysus & Ariadne

One day Dionysus the god of wine was shape shifted in his favourite form, a handsome young man. He was then spotted by some ugly pirates.

The pirates saw him and thought he would cost lots of money as a slave, so laughing cruely they kidnapped him.

Dionysus found this amusing and let them wrap him up in ropes. But the ropes were rubbing so he escaped from the ropes. One man saw him do it so he pleaded to his crew to take him back to the shore. But they just laughed at him.

Then dionysus wrapped the ship in vines and turned into a lion, all of the pirates jumped off the boat except for the one who pleaded to let him go because he seemed to be stuck.

Dionysus demanded him to drop him off at a island called Naxos, where he met Princess Ariadne who was abondoned by Prince Theseus. He then offered his hand in marriage and she willingly agreed so they lived happily ever after.
