Out of the Greek Myths

The scene was Mount Olympus, where Bacchus, the Greek
god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman
deities — Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-
faced god of doors and beginnings.

Everyone overdid it, more or less. Ceres at one point was staggering and turning in circles;
Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her.
Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to
steady them. …. This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres
was held with a double-header.
