Reckoned amongst the sons of Hermes was this great phallic god of the inhabitants of the Peloponnese, especially of Arcadia - a goat-horned, goat-legged god named Pan. In a story concerning Hermes set in Arcadia, Hermes pastured sheep for a mortal master, Dryops, 'oak' - the first Green Man - and whilst doing so fell in love with a local nymph. Hermetic desire found fulfilment, and a magic child was born, with goat's feet and goat's horns, crying and laughing.
When his mother had borne him, she sprang up and fled, leaving none to suckle the child, so terrified was she saw its wild and bearded face. Hermes picked up his son, wrapped him in a hare's pelt, and hastily brought him to Olympus. He sat down beside Zeus and the other gods, and introduced his son to them. The immortals were delighted with the child - Dionysus most of all. They named him Pan because 'all' had been pleased with him.
