This photo of one of the panels depicts the marriage of Dionysus to Ariadne.  Dionysus is reclining on the left, being crowned by a small Eros.  To his left is a satyr holding a torch.  Ariadne is seated holding a basket of fruit.  On the right are two satyrs carrying grapes and wine.

Drinking wine and drunkenness are associated with the god Dionysus.
