Pompeii, not from this temple. 1968. Pan pipes discovered in 1899. From Villa of Siminius Stephanus.
The Pan pipes are decorated with three aediculae that are supposed to represent a frons scaenae and, at the top, nine rods of different heights.
They are connected at the bottom, and bear a hole near of the mouth. 
The object, strongly restored in the nineteenth century, is large, so as to suggest that the operation needed the help of a special machine. 
Its use was connected to the satyr play and the myth, but the instruments were also used during ritual ceremonies, such as Isiac processions, during which the faithful waved the sistrum.
It was also used during theatrical performances to entertain banqueters, as music as a separate discipline from acting does not seem to have existed in ancient times.
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 125187 but shown on the MANN web site as 111055.
