Beings physically similar to Fauns. They were extremely lustful (so much so that the medical term satyriasis is derived from them), copulating with women, nymphs and animals, especially goats. There is a remarkable statue of a Satyr copulating with a goat at the Museo Nazionale in Naples. (Some say that the Satyr is Pan himself.) This admirable work of art is pictured in Hans Licht's Sexual Life in Ancient Greece.
