In ancient Greece, the symposium was a drinking party (from Greek sympotein, "to drink together"). Literary works that describe or take place at a symposium include two Socratic dialogues, Plato's Symposium and Xenophon's Symposium, as well as a number of Greek poems such as the elegies of Theognis of Megara. Symposia are also depicted in Greek art, and Etruscan art shows similar scenes. The Latin equivalent in Roman society is the convivium
