Chapter 4, 47: And Opened the Gate

The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is Pan, although the reference is probably to one of the Homeric epithets of Eos (Aurora), "Opener of the Gate of Heaven," and some people have tried to explain what he's supposed to mean in the context of Wind in the Willows.

Then Pink Floyd got hold of it and did an album. You're welcome.
