Satyr (sat'ir). A fabled creature of Greek mythology, part man and part goat, and supposed to be the deity of forests and rural places. The expression "satyrs shall dance there," Isaiah 13:21 (the R. V. margin reads "he goats," comp. also Isaiah 34:14), denotes that the place shall become a rude, wild, uncultivated waste.
