  Thyrsus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Greek mythology, a thyrsus (thyrsos) was a giant fennel staff covered with ivy vines and leaves and topped with a pine cone.
The thyrsus is a composite symbol of the forest (pine cone) and the farm (fennel).
Sometimes the thyrsus was displayed in conjunction with a wine cup, forming a male-and-female combination like that of the royal scepter and orb.

 The Holy Martyrs Thyrsus, Leucius and Callinicus. - December 14   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Saints Thyrsus and Leucius were eminent citizens of Bithynian Caesarea; the latter being baptised and the former still a catechumen.
When he beheld Leucius's courageous death, blessed Thyrsus was inflamed with divine zeal and, like Leucius, went before the judge and rebuked him for his crimes and his lack of belief in the one, true God.
Callinicus was beheaded with the sword, and Thyrsus was placed in a wooden coffin to be sawn asunder, but God's power prevented this and the saw could not penetrate the wood.

 The Internet Classics Archive | The Bacchantes by Euripides
For though the ironshod dart would draw no blood from them, they with the thyrsus, which they hurled, caused many a wound and put their foes to utter rout, women chasing men, by some god's intervention.
Then they returned to the place whence they had started, even to the springs the god had made to spout for them; and there washed off the blood, while serpents with their tongues were licking clean each gout from their cheeks.
Some were wreathing afresh the drooping thyrsus with curling ivy-sprays; others, like colts let loose from the carved chariot-yoke, were answering each other in hymns of Bacchic rapture.

Saints Thyrsus and Leucius were honorable citizens of Caesarea of Bithynia, the former being baptized and the latter being a Christian catechumen.
Witnessing the death of the courageous Leucius, blessed Thyrsus, inflamed with divine zeal like that of Leucius, also appeared before the judge and reproached him for his evil crimes and for his unbelief in the One True God.
Thyrsus immediately went to Phileas, the Bishop of Caesarea, to be baptized by him.

 Das Drachen-Bestiarium - Haymo
Another giant, Thyrsus, inhabited the surroundings of Seefeld, then a small village some kilometers northwest of Innsbruck (today Seefeld is well renowned as a winter sports resort).
During their struggle Haymo happened to wound Thyrsus who fled back to his home where at last he was slain.
Although he mentioned the old names Thürsenbuet (= Thyrsus´ blood) and Thürschenöl (= Thyrsus´ oil), he neglected the legend of the fight between the two heroes, interpreted Thyrsus as a general name of giants and equated Thyrsus and Haymo.
