But considering, now, that unless an eclipse is, say, 97% or more, it would probably go unnoticed, and given the very narrow path of totality of a given eclipse, combined with the relative isolation of most human societies throughout our history, I can easily imagine that it would be a frequent situation in which an eclipse sufficiently close to totality in a given region would result in panic because there wouldn't be anyone around that had ever experienced one or even ever heard of one.
But at least the Sun God always won -- eventually. Imagine the panic if he didn't?
