I take it then that you've read Sabazius' memorandum on 101, located at http://www.otohq.org/l101_mem.html ; I myself was initially taken back by his comments on 101 in an official capacity, then it settled in as a nagging concern.

I'm sure that you won't agree 100% with my choices (I stress this particularly in light of what may be a convenient euphemism in the "personal relationship" cited in the original Sabazius essay), but please note the fact that this document has been utterly gutted by this "memorandum" referenced above.

 the greek dionysus and the religion of ancient greece
Scholars have long suspected that the god known as Dionysus is in fact a fusion of a local Greek nature god, and another more potent god imported rather late in Greek pre-history from Phrygia (the central area of modern day Turkey) or Thrace.
Dionysus was also called Bacchus, Zagreus, Sabazius, Adonis, Antheus, Zalmoxis, Pentheus, Pan, Liber Pater, or "the Liberator." His emblem was the thyrsus, a phallic scepter tipped with a pine cone.
Dionysus, Bromius, Sabazius, Attis, Adonis, Zalmoxis, Corybas, Serapis, and Orpheus himself are replicas of their grand prototype Osiris; and the variations which appear among them resulted from the transplantation of the god from one country to another, and reflect simply the specific needs of his multifarious worshipers.
