the mountainous districts of the eastern parts of India, in what is called
the country of Catharcludi, we find the Satyr, an animal of extraordinary
swiftness. They go sometimes on four feet, and sometimes walk erect;
they have, also, the features of a human being."
Isidore of Seville- "The Satyrs are manikins with
upturned noses; they have horns on their foreheads, and are goat-footed,
such as the one St. Anthony saw in the desert. And he, being
questioned, is said to have answered the servant of God, saying, "I am
mortal, one of the inhabitants of the waste, whom the heathen, misled by
error, worship as the Fauns and Satyrs.""
