Satyrs

Satyrs - Companions of Bacchus and "danced along with him" [Elion Hist. p.22] referring to the Satyric Dance. Remember Bacchus referred to as "bull-horned". The Satyrs also had their horns and it would seem that the Satyric Dance is a counterpart of the American Indian Buffalo Dance, in imitation of the Satyric "horned-divinities".

Satyr in sign language

If you look up the word satyr in a sign language dictionary you will see that one hand is making the bull horn symbol often associated with satanism. Interesting to note that the same symbol is a sort of slang for the deaf which means "I love you."
