  Eleusinian mysteries
This was the most secretive part of the Mysteries and those who had been initiated were forbidden to ever speak of the events that took place in the Telesterion.
Following this section of the Mysteries was the Pannychis, an all-night feast accompanied by dancing and merriment.
The dances took place in the Rharian Field, rumored to be the first spot where corn grew.

 Pannychis - BPAL Madness!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Pannychis is sort of “meh” on me, alas.
I'm testing Pannychis on my left side, and for some reason the left side of my body is less cooperative than the right, when testing perfumes.
Pannychis most definitely hates me. I thought that it had a lot of interestingly combined notes (currants, florals, frankincense, sandalwood, everything).

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 1998.11.37
Bravo convincingly argues against interpretations of this passage advanced by Wilamowitz, Bowra, and others, who stressed the fact that Anakreon was famous for his erotic poetry and argued that these lines of Kritias refer to such erotic poetry, to be sung perhaps by hetairai.
Bravo, instead, argues that Kritias refers to songs sung and danced to by maidens at a pannychis that was performed together with a symposion of the male members of the same family.
He combines mere mentions of a pannychis and a symposion into evidence for the combination of these two rituals into one whole, though he must admit that this was not held in honor of Dionysos, as the rituals suggested by his other evidence seemed to be.

The more solemn watches, which were held on the anniversaries of martyrs or on certain feasts, were also known by this title, especially during the third and fourth centuries.
The Vigil in this case was also called pannychis, because the greater part of the night was devoted to it.
Basil also gives a very vague description of the Night Office or Vigils, but in terms which permit us to conclude that the psalms were sung, sometimes by two choirs, and sometimes as responses.

 Satyricon Chapter 4
At this moment Pannychis, unaccustomed at her age to love's ardors, raised a sudden cry of pain and consternation, which the soldiers heard.
All Pannychis could do was to throw a veil over her face and resign herself to endure whatever fate might bring her.
She burst into the house with loud cries, declaring that a band of robbers was prowling about the neighborhood while peaceful citizens were crying in vain for help, the guard being asleep or busy with their victuals, at any rate nowhere to be found.

Probably she is a priestress of Demeter, carrying kiste with the sacred symbols during the procession and keeping a vessel with kykeon.
On the pediment of this Tablet is represented Pannychis, the whole-night feast.
The festal activities were accompanied by dances, -perhaps across the Rharian field-,(where as the myth is saying the first corn ever grew) and later on by a bull-sacrifice also in the court of the sanctuary.

It is easy to notice that there is a lacuna in that passage of Petronius in which Encolpius is left with Quartilla, looking through a chink in the door, at the actions of Giton and little Pannychis.
For the benefit of those who have not read the author, it is well to state that this Quartilla was a priestess of Priapus, at whose house they celebrated the mysteries of that god.
Pannychis is a young girl of seven years who had been handed over to Giton to be deflowered.

 HARRY FARJEON by Philip Scowcroft   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
He was one of many British composers to conduct his own music at Bournemouth on the platform so thoughtfully and generously provided by Dan Godfrey, for example the Phantasy Concerto (1924-5), the Piano Concerto (1902-19), Idyll for oboe and orchestra, the Characteristic Variations (1903) and the Caldicott Suite (1929).
His symphonic poem, Pannychis, was premiered at the Henry Wood Promenade concerts as late as 1942.
Another symphonic poem, Summer Vision, Farjeon reckoned to be his finest composition but the score was lost in transit to Germany just before the Great War broke out and was never seen again.

 Regarding the Supplicatory Prayer Service
The Studite Pannychis, which seems to have reached its final form in the 9th-10th centuries, took the form of an abbreviated Matins service prior to the introduction of the Six Psalms, the Praises and the Aposticha.
Vigils in honour of important feasts and saints are instead accomplished by means of combining Vespers and Matins into an All-Night Vigil (Agrypnia, Vsenoshcnoe bdenie).
The form of the original Paraklesis Canons to the Theotokos in the modern Greek Church has remained essentially stable throughout its history, although the individual services have become a bit more elaborate and include a few later additions.

 Regarding the Supplicatory Prayer Service
The liturgical structure of the Paraklesis is derived from the Pannychis (Vigil) service of the Studite Typikon.
This service, called the Pannychis, was not a true All-Night Vigil as its name suggests, but was approximately an hour to an hour-and-a-half long service of hymns, prayers and readings following Vespers.
Upon examination, one can see that its structure was essentially that of the modern Moleben.

Remarkably, this proposed service is also very much a return to ancient practice.
For 700-800 years, in the cathedral of Constantinople, Hagia Sophia, the Saturday evening service was very much like this, consisting of vespers and a brief service called a pannychis (=vigil).
It contained much singing, processions, incensations; and all the people sang the responses to the psalmody.
