Dionysus Commends King Midas

Case Description: Silenus, Dionysus' old drunken satyr buddy, got lost in the woods one day. Luckily, King Midas found the grey-haired satyr before he could stumble off a cliff or something. At King Midas' request, Dionysus gave him "the golden touch," which turned anything he laid his hands on into gold. (If you know the rest of this story, then you know it turned out to be a pretty awful reward.)
