In Greek mythology, Satyr is a demigod, a mountain or forest demon who was half man and half goat. He was the son of the god Hermes.
The satyrs were the guides of the god Dionysus and also members of the retinues of the god Pan. They are also considered shepherds of flocks.
There were several satyrs and they were very cheerful. They loved wine and other pleasures. They liked to dance, chase nymphs and play musical instruments (flutes, syrinx, bagpipes, etc.). They are often identified with male sexual power and are very often depicted with erections.
