De soubdaine frayeur.

Pan[1] regardant gens fuyants estonnéz,
Qu’est ce (dict il) qui sonne mes cornetz?

Es armées, & grandes assemblées adviennent
aulcunefois des paours & frayeurs soudaines,
consternantes tous, sans quelque cause mani-
feste, sinon une craincte interieure, en ung che-
scun sans savoir pourquoy. Lesquelz espoven
temens les anciens appelloient Terreurs Pani-
cques: disans que le Dieu Pan alors sonnoit son
cor. Le son duquel envoyoit ces frayeurs soub-
daines, & incertaines, es coeurs des hommes.

Notes:

1.  Pan, the half-goat rustic god (see [A58a091]), accredited with the invention of the horn or military trumpet, and responsible for unexplained ‘panic’ terrors seizing man and beast, especially on the battle-field and in wild lonely places. See Erasmus, Adagia 2603, Panicus casus.
