Originally a shepherd god of Arcady, Pan developed into a hunter, fisherman and warrior. He was worshipped at Athens after the Battle of Marathon {see planet  (4356)}, where he aided the Athenians by spreading panic through the Persian armies. He has been represented in art as a horned half-man, half goat. (M 17657)

The name Pan has also been given to the satellite Saturn XVIII.
