Nowhere stated

Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 4. 27 (trans. Conybeare) (Greek biography C1st to C2nd A.D.) :
"But we must not disbelieve that Satyroi (Satyrs) both exist and are susceptible to the passion of love; for I [the author Philostratos] knew a youth of my own age in Lemnos whose mother was said to be visited by a Satyros, as he well might to judge by this story; for he was represented as wearing on his back a fawn-skin that exactly fitted him, the front paws of which were drawn around his neck and fastened over his chest. But I must not go further into this subject; but, anyhow, credit is due as much to experience of facts as it is to myself."
