Mount Hermon – Cave of Pan

The Cave of Pan known as Banias is located at the base of Mount Hermon, north of the Golan Heights. Mount Hermon is where the Fallen Angels were said to have first placed their feet on Earth. This is mentioned in the Book of Enoch, but this may actually be the cave in which Enoch read the petition of the Fallen Angels before taking it to God. The Cave of Pan has had many names now named Banias, cave of the Horned god Pan, a son of the Greek god Hermes or Thoth. The first mention of the ancient city during the Hellenistic period was in the context of the Battle of Panium, fought around 200-198 BCE, when the name of the region was given as the Panion. Later, Pliny called the city Paneas (Greek: Πανειάς). Both names were derived from that of Pan, the god of the wild and companion of the nymphs. Why Jesus, Alexander the Great and Augustus visited this site is very curious indeed. Pan is a deity of Greek mythology but if you follow ANCIENT MYSTERY you know that the picture is much bigger than any of us expected.
