The epithet Panoptes, reflecting his mythic role, set by Hera as a very effective watchman of Io, was described in a fragment of a lost poem Aigimios, attributed to Hesiod
"And set a watcher upon her, great and strong Argos, who with four eyes looks every way. And the goddess stirred in him unwearying strength: sleep never fell upon his eyes; but he kept sure watch always."

I think it's important to realize that secret societies - ones that are "occult" - don't tend to advertise. That's what makes them secret. If such societies exist, and if they have any sort of symbolism, you can be sure that it won't be anything obvious, that everyone and their cousin knows about. Not much of a secret, if the whole Internet knows about it.
