|Pan god goat man|
|A man with the legs and horns of a goat dances and plays a shepherd's pipe.|
|Pan is the god of shepherds and flocks, son of Hermes and a nymph. He was |
born with the legs and horns of a goat, which caused his own mother to
spurn him. Nor was the adult god more popular with the nymphs. Echo ran
away from him and lost her voice as a consequence, being condemned only to
repeat the words of others. Another fleeing nymph was transformed into a
reed, which inspired him to invent the shepherd's pipe of bound reeds of
varying lengths. He is also considered to be the cause of the sudden fear
that sometimes comes for no reason, especially in lonely places. That's
why it's called "panic".
Pan is in an excellent condition.
