In Greek mythology, a kind of demi-god or deity; a follower of Dionysus. He is wanton and lascivious, and often represented with goatlike ears and legs and a tail. A satyr is often found cavorting with one or more maenads, ecstatic women, especially Bacchants, who were priestesses, votaries of Dionysus (Bacchus). An older satyr is called a silenos.(pr. SA-tər)
