A Religious symbolism and device from early Ancient Greece – The ''Thyrsus'' was form of Staff, topped with Berry and Olive Vines. This Staff was borne by The God Dionysus. It was seen as being the root of Grecian Culture's perception of ''Health and Prosperity''. Later, Ancient Rulers would adopt a version of The Thyrsus as a type of ''Divine Scepter''. The symbol can be found throughout Ancient Greek Art.
