Pan (Faunus) Sightings

  • The Metamorphoses by Ovid 2

    Get all the details on Pan's creepy stalking of Syrinx in this mega-famous collection of mega-myth-y poems.


  • Dionysiaca by Nonnus 401 - 500

    Pan gets up to all kinds of shenanigans in this ancient poem, including getting all stalky with Echo.

    Pan is still ticked that Mrs. Browning went around telling everybody he was dead in this classic poem.


  • "A Musical Instrument" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning 1860

    Some say the "goat footed balloonman" in this famous poem is either a satyr or Pan in disguise.

    Percy Jackson's buddy, Grover Underwood, is a satyr who dreams of one day searching for the long lost god, Pan.


  • Pan's Labyrinth 2006
