|Pan with Nymphs|
His unseen presence aroused feelings of panic in men passing through the remote, lonely places of the wilds. Pan was often represented as a vigorous and lustful figure with the horns, legs, and ears of a goat. Pan was lover of nymphs, and nymphs commonly fled from his advances. Syrinx ran away from Pan advances and was transformed into a clump of reeds, out of which Pan crafted his famous pan-pipes. Some Christian depictions of the devil bear a striking resemblance to Pan. Pan could inspire irrational terror in humans, and the word 'panic' came from his name.
