A famous mosaic in Paphos, Cyprus represents the myth of how mankind learned wine making. This mosaic appears on two singles stamps issued by Cyprus in 1964 and 1983.

The mosaic depicting Icarios offered Dionysus hospitality and in return learnt how to make wine. Before leaving, Dionysus issued a warning to hide the wine well or disaster would happen. Icarios did not heed the warning and when returning home offered some shepherds (to the right) some wine. They became drunk and thinking themselves to have been poisoned killed Icarios (the inscription above their head says the first wine drinkers). On the left, Dionysus sitting opposite Akme, a nymph who personified culmination and perfection. Akme is drinking wine, though she is represented as the complete opposite of the drunken shepherds.




The image of Akme is depicted on a 1 Pound banknote of Cyprus:

Vatican City,Mosaic and Olympic Games


" Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly "
(Paul,Corinthians)
