In Greek mythology, a satyr (Greek: σάτυρος sátyros), also known as a silenos (Greek: σειληνός seilēnós),is a male nature spirit with ears and a tail resembling those of a horse, as well as a permanent, exaggerated erection. Early artistic representations sometimes include goat-like legs, but, by the sixth century BC, they were more often represented with human legs. Comically hideous, they have mane-like hair, bestial faces, and snub noses and are always shown naked. Satyrs were characterized by their ribaldry and were known as lovers of wine, music, dancing, and women. They were companions of the god Dionysus and were believed to inhabit remote locales, such as woodlands, mountains, and pastures. They often attempted to seduce or rape nymphs and mortal women alike, usually with little success. They are sometimes shown masturbating or engaging in bestiality. Wikipedia

Οἱ Σάτυροι ἦσαν δαίμονες τῶν ὀρέων καὶ τῶν δασῶν, ἔχοντες ὄψιν κατὰ τὸ ἥμισυ ἀνδρὸς καὶ σῶμα καὶ πόδας τράγου. Εἶχον ἀτρίχους κεφαλὰς καὶ ὦτα ὀξέα καὶ μεγάλα. Ἦσαν ὑπηρέται καὶ ἑταῖροι Διονύσου, ὅν ἀνέθρεψαν ἐκ παιδός, καὶ εἶχον ἀρχηγὸν τὸν Σειληνόν. Διέτριβον αὐλοῦντες, κιθαρίζοντες καὶ χορεύοντες, μεθύοντες καὶ τρυγῶντες. Theodoros Tomaras
