When, therefore, they were come over against Palodes, there being neither wind nor swell of sea, Thamus, looking out from the stern, called out to the land what he had heard, namely, 'That the great Pan is dead:' and hardly had he finished speaking than there was a mighty cry, not of one, but of many voices mingled together in wondrous manner.--On the Cessation of Oracles, p. 93

Originally published in 1882 as part of Bohn's Classical Library, this volume of selections from Plutarch's Moralia was translated by the 19th century scholar of Gnostics and gemstones, Charles William King. King also wrote The Gnostics and Their Remains.
