Dithyramb Hymn *4 Dionysus*

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dithyramb

The dithyramb (Ancient Greek: διθύραμβος, dithyrambos) was an ancient Greek hymn sung and danced in honour of Dionysus, the god of wine and fertility; the term was also used as an epithet of the god:[1] Plato, in The Laws, while discussing various kinds of music mentions “the birth of Dionysos, called, I think, the dithyramb.”[2] Plato also remarks in the Republic that dithyrambs are the clearest example of poetry in which the poet is the only speaker.[3]
