Pan to Demeter Race

RACE TO DEMETER

Angry with Poseidon and upset at the rape of Persephone, Demeter put on black clothing and shut herself up in a cavern for a long time. The fruits of the earth perished, and the human race started to die from famine.  No god knew where Demeter was hiding to stop the suffering. However, when Pan visited Arkadia, roaming the mountains as he hunted, he came at last to Mount Elaios and found Demeter in the cave.  Pan raced to Zeus with this information, and he sent the Moirai to Demeter. She listened to them and put aside her wrath, and gradually over came her grief as well.
