Zagreus

The babe Zagreus was born from the thigh of Zeus as Zagreus-Dionysos, the Savior. Identified with Iacchus, the divine son of Demeter-Kore in the later Eleusinian Mysteries, he visits the Underworld and brings his mother Semele back to earth, now as Thyone (the inspired) to reign with Demeter-Kore as the radiant queen and divine mother in the Orphic Mysteries. http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/etgloss/sed-sez.htm Zagreus means stormy in Greek. According to a Thracian Orphism originally the Great Goddess-mother, she was the Universe: samozacheva and his first born son who is the sun during the day and at night - fire / personified as Zagreus or Sabazios. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=bg&u=http://search.pomagalo.com/%3Fkeywords%3Dsirni%2Bzagovezni%26s%3D1&ei=rTjwSYiNEoW9-AarmuHEDw&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=2&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3DSirni%2Bzagovezni%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG Day - Night Sun - Fire
