In ancient Greek mythology Pan was the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, rustic music and companion of the nymphs. He was also recognized as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with fertility and the season of spring. The ancient Greeks also considered Pan to be the god of theatrical criticism.
