Pan was the Ancient Greek god of fertility, and the special patron of shepherds and huntsmen, presiding over all rural occupations. In Ancient Greek mythology and culture, Satyr and Silenus were creatures of the wild, part man and part beast, and thus closely associated with the god Dionysus in Classical times. Their Italian counterparts were the Fauns. In ancient art, Satyrs and Sileni were depicted in company with nymphs or Maenads whom they pursued.
