The continuation of the (tragic) story of Dionysus and Ampelus, as told in Nonnus' Dionysiaca. Beloved Ampelus dies, and Eros tries to console Dionysus with another of two more tragic lovers: Calamos and Carpos.
CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
