Priapus in Greek mythology, was the son of Bacchus and Venus. The angry Juno touched the body of the pregnant Venus so that she gave birth to a hideous child with unnaturally large genital organs. The older writers do not know him. He was worshipped as the god of country fruitfulness, and his statues were placed in gardens.
