The Roman love of decorative sculpture with Bacchic themes, often with humorous overtones, is well documented from Pompeii and elsewhere. Silenus can be paired with the god (see no. 82 in Giroire and Roger, Roman Art from the Louvre) or shown on his own in various activities, including making music and holding the infant Bacchus (nos. 214-215 in Simon, "Silenoi," in LIMC). For a younger satyr pouring from a wineskin, which he carries on his shoulders, see no. 191 in Conticello, et al., Rediscovering Pompeii.
