Dionysus was the Greek God of wine. Purely by chance we saw his statues on a recent visit to the British museum.
I have heard of legless due to alcohol but here he seems to be armless. Perhaps an old version of the saying ” one drink didn’t (h)arm anybody- in this case he’s (h)armless enough!
Another statue showed a later version
We seem to have a similar approach nearly 2000 years later
