Priapus (aka Mutinus to the Romans) was the Olympian god of fertility, male virility, and horticulture. Born in Lampsacus, Phrygia (part of modern day western Turkey), the son of Dionysus and Aphrodite, he was extraordinarily endowed, ugly, satyr-like god, known for his excesses and potency. Shunned by other gods, he befriended a talking donkey, a gift from Dionysus, until slaying it in an argument over virility; Dionysus made a constellation from the slain donkey. Priapus attempted to ravish the nymph Lotis, who protected herself by turning into a Lotus flower. The Roman Encolpius offended and was rendered impotent by Priapus as recounted in Petronius' "Satyricon."
