Another "True Blood" Question

Hey everyone ! So I just watched the latest True Blood episode. For those who have seen it, you'd probably be able to guess what my question is going to be. I'll put it under a cut though, for those who haven't seen it yet.

During the episode, Sookie reads the mind of Maryann, who is a Maenad. I know that Maenads date back to Ancient Greece, but I was wondering what language she was "thinking"/"speaking" in her head, and what she was saying? Was it Latin?

Thanks everyone!
