PLUTARCH

Paxi. Most on board were awake, and many still drinking after supper. Suddenly a voice was heard from the island of Paxi ; some one was calling Thamus in a loud voice, so that they all wondered. Thamus was an Egyptian pilot, not even known by name to many of the passengers. Twice he was called, and remained silent ; the third time he paid attention to the caller, who raised his voice and said: ` When you reach the Palodes, tell them that Great Pan is dead.' Hearing this, Epitherses said, all were in consternation, and began discussing with one another whether it were better to do as was ordered, or to refuse to meddle and to let it be. They decided in the end that, if there were a breeze, Thamus should sail past quietly ; but if there should be calm about the place, he should hail, and report. When he was off the Palodes, as there was neither wind nor wave, Thamus at the helm looked to land and repeated the words he had heard: ` Great Pan is dead.' He had no sooner done this than a great groaning was heard, proceeding not from one but from many, mingled with cries of wonder.
Demetrius told us that, among the islands near Britain, many were deserted and lay scattered (Sporades), some of them bearing the names of daemons and demigods. He himself, by the emperor's command, made a voyage of inquiry and observation to the nearest of the deserted islands, which had a few inhabitants, all sacred persons and never molested by the Britons. Just after his arrival, there was a great confusion in the atmosphere, many portents from the sky with gusts of wind and fiery blasts. When these calmed down, the islanders said that ` one of the mightier ones has ceased to be'. For as a lamp when lighted, so they explained, has no unpleasant effect, but when extinguished is disagreeable to many people, so it is with great souls : their kindling into life is easy and free from pain ; their extinction and death often breed winds and tempests, ` such as you see now ', and infect the air with pestilence and sickness
