In Greek religion and mythology, Pan (Ancient Greek: Πᾶν, Pān) is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music, and companion of the nymphs

Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds/flocks, nature, of the groves, mountain wilds, hunting, fervid lust/carnal desire, unbridled male sexuality, and rustic music. He is also directly connected to fertility and to masturbation [taught to him by Hermes]. His homeland is in rustic Arcadia. Pan is also a god with the gift of prophecy. This was demonstrated when Apollo took over the shrine of the Delphic Oracle, he first seized Pan and forced the goat-god to teach him the gift of prophecy

Statue of Pan in Painswick, Gloucestershire The Cotswold village of Painswick has an interesting past. In the 18th century a nobleman named Benjamin Hyett took up residence outside the village and decided to create an annual procession dedicated to the Greek god of nature, Pan, in which a statue of the deity was carried through the village from the church to the woods. Once amid the trees, the villagers would indulge in Dionysian revelry. The tradition has since died out.
