Today is anniversary of creation of Viagra.

The festival honored Dionysus Eleuthereus, who was said to have been introduced into Athens from the village of Eleuterae, a town on the border between Attica and Boeotia, had chosen to become part of Attica.

Dionysus then punished the Athenians with a plague affecting the male genitalia, which was cured when the Athenians accepted the cult of Dionysus. This was recalled each year by a procession of citizens carrying phalloi. The theatrical contents took pla…
