Headword: Haliplanktos
Adler number: alpha,1241
Translated headword: sea-roaming
Vetting Status: high
Thus Pan is called, either because he aided the Athenians in the sea-battle,[1] or because he hunted Typhon with nets,[2] or because seamen honor Pan as an established god, or because [he is] loud-voiced in the dance, roaring like the sea, or because he is in love with Echo; the sea [is] noisy. Pan is a patron of dances.
