Panares was a general of the ancient city of Kydonia at the time which the Romans attacked the city in 69 BC.[1] In this era Kydonia had aligned itself with the interests of pirates and incurred the anger of the Roman Senate.[2] When the Romans vanquished Kydonia, Panares surrendered the city, while co-general Lasthenes fled to Knossos.[3]
