In Etruscan mythology, Fufluns (or Puphluns) was a god of plant life, happiness, wine, health and growth in all things. He is the son of Semla. He was worshipped at Populonia (Etruscan “Fufluna” or “Pupluna”).

His Greek equivalent is Dionysus, whereas his Roman equivalent is Bacchus/Liber.

He was adopted by the Romans but was quickly meshed into Bacchus.
