Have some fun... ;-)
Those satyrs carry the pillars of the so called Wallpavillon, also: French Pavillion.
Satyrs are companions of Dionysos and Pan. They drink a lot and have an uncontrollable sex drive) ? as you can clearly see here ;-)
They have pointed ears, a goat or horse tail, and are mostly shown with a giant phallus. In mythology they are demons who scare the humans, symbolising the dire consequences of excessive lifestyle.
On top of the Wallpavillon you find Augustus the Strong as a Hercules carrying a globe.
Nearby is the Nymphenbad ? bath of the Nymphs.
