Pan is a Greek god of wilderness and all within it. He is often depicted akin to a satyr, a man with a equine features, playing pipes that are named after him. His Roman counterpart is Faunus.

According to the Greek myths, Pan's homeland is Arkadia, where he is also considered the god of fields and groves, and associated with fertility and the growth of all things, and by association, with spring. He is also often considered to be in the company of nymphs. [citation needed]

Influence and legacy

During the Peloponnesian War the Spartan misthios Kassandra explored a cave dedicated to him in Argolis, and another in Attika.[1]

The city of Alexandria in Egypt, founded in 331 BCE, had the monument Paneum erected for Pan. In 48 BCE, it served as the meeting place for the Medjay Bayek of Siwa and Aya, his wife, after they believed the former had slain their son's killer, the Snake.[2]

Trivia
