Pseudo-Hyginus, Astronomica 2. 13 (trans. Grant) (Roman mythographer C2nd A.D.) :
"[The constellation Capra.] Euhemerus [Greek writer C4th-3rd B.C.] says that a certain Aex was the wife of Pan. When she was embraced by Jove [Zeus] she bore a son whom she called son of Pan. So the child was called Aegipan, and Jove, Aegiochus [i.e. Holder of the Goat or Aegis]. Since he was very fond of him, he placed in memory the form of a goat among the stars." [N.B. Capra is a group of stars beside the shoulder of the constellation Auriga.]
