Pan and Pitys

Pan and Boreas were attracted by Pitys, a beautiful nymph. When she choses Pan, Boreas ( a god controlling the north air) blew her over a cliff. The Mother Earth, Gaea, took Pitys dead body and turned it into a pine tree. When the north wind (Boreas) blows through the tree you can sill hear her weep. According to another story Pan chased her and in order to get away from him Pitys turned herself into a pine tree. The tree then became holy to Pan, who made a wreath of pine branches to wear.

Pan is the innermost of Saturn's known satellites
