The head in the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (National Museum of Antiquities) depicts Dionysos as a young, beardless god. His facial expression is ecstatic. His curly hair is held in place with a fillet. Beneath it, beside his right temple, a bunch of grapes is depicted. To the Greeks, Dionysos was the god of wine, intoxication, and ecstasy. The Romans knew him as Bacchus.
