The real answer is anything since panic can occur out of the blue and whatever is going on at the time gets paired with it. Don't let panic go untreated as avoidances accumulate causing severe disability.

Anything that has to do with the theme of death , loss, abandonment, or grief.

In brief: Too many

Almost anything can trigger a panic attack or sometimes there is no real trigger.
