Pan Ancient God of Sacrificial Fertility. The goat-hooved and lusty king of the Arcadian satyrs, the original Horned One, he was closely identified with Dionysos and the cult of wine and ecstasy. This magnificent Renaissance image by Andrea Briosco (c. 1500) shows him carrying wine jug at hip and a cornucopia upon his shoulder. His open mouth induces panic as he utters the fearsome cry of Pan. Identical with Faunus, Silenus, Silvanus, Pan is the quintessential woodland god, demonized by the Church to diminish his powerful influence on pagans (lit. rural dweller) across Europe.
