More info

The satyrs were the sons of Silenus, son of the god Pan. They were geniuses of the woods and mountains, companions of Dionysus the god of wine.

They frightened shepherds and travellers. Marsyas, the most famous satyr, invented the flute and taught others to play it. That is why they held a large place in the festivities in honour of Dionysus.

They were cunning and liked to hide and frighten men and especially nymphs to play with their fears.

The satyrs escorted Dionysus in the company of the Menads.

According to Hesiod, they were the descendants of the five daughters of a certain Hecatero, who had married an Argian princess, daughter of King Phoronea. They were also given for the children of Hermes or the naiads.
Their sisters were the Orades and were known for their lascivious appetites and debauchery.

They personified the spontaneous fertility of the wilderness and particularly liked to pursue the nymphs with which they hoped to satisfy their appetites.
