English Text:

This structure was built around 220 CE. Only parts of this temple survived. Among them are the north wall, part of a semicircular hall (apse), and a semicircular niche behind it. This same structure is depicted on the Panias city coin at the top of this text. There, Pan appears in the niche playing the flute to three dancing goats in the apse. The musicians sat in the stairway adjacent to the niche, while the sacred goats danced. This rite assured the fertility of the herds.
