). A Greek painter whom Aristotle contrasts with
Polygnotus in terms implying that the former was a caricaturist (Poët.
2.2). Elsewhere Aristotle says that young people should not look at the pictures of Pauson,
but rather at those of Polygnotus or of any other “ethical” artist
viii. 5.7). He is improbably identified with the Pauson who is
mentioned with contempt by Aristophanes (Ach.
, Thesm. 948
, and Plutus, 602
). See Pictura
