Aka : Faunes
The Satyrs were creatures who looked like men, but had the hooves and feet as well as the tails of goats. They could be best described as goat-men. Their preferred pastimes were to chase after the wood nymphs and to play nasty tricks on men.
One of the most famous Satyrs was Pan, a son of Hermes by Penelope (possibly the daughter of Dryops) or of Zeus and Hybris. Also called Hylaeos, or forest god, Pan was represented as a bearded man with a large hooked nose, and with the ear, horns and legs of a goat. His body was covered with hair and he held a seven reed shepherd's pipe. His name is the basis for the word "panic". He was the god of green fields and the guardian of the shepherds associated with the worship of Dionysus, and as a mountain deity with that of Cybele. He is at home in any wild place but, is favorite is Arcady, where he was born. He is always in pursuit of one of the nymphs but, always rejected because he is ugly. He was fond of sportive dances, singing with woodland nymphs and playing on pipes, the sprinx or Pan pipes, invented by him according to this story. Satyrs are always represented at Dionysus banquets, the god of wine and ecstasy.
