In Greek mythology, the Golden Age was the first of the ages. It was said to have been ruled over by the god Pan, who is the same as the later identified Kronos, or Saturn. In fact, Pan was a type of he-goat called a “satyr”, which derives from the same root word as “Saturnus”, and “Kronos” comes from the ancient Semitic word “qrn”, which means “horn”, effectively making Kronos/Saturn the “horned god” (think of words like Capricorn, tricorn, unicorn, etc…). It was said that the end of the Golden Age was marked by the death of Pan. This is, in fact, the only pagan deity whose death is recorded, recounted in Plutarch’s “The Obsolescence of Oracles”.
Found this info to be quite Fantastical.
.. Art history collector Don Barone* ...may have some Pan paintings with more info secreted in them than just Earth 23.5 axis tilt.
Velikovsky sometimes sweeps by Theme points ....such as Saturn....which he kept as personal unpublished. ...something of a frustration for those keen on his perspectives.
In this case....Greek lines up with Babylonian,...or,
Greeks kept the story straight. ...high fives : )
