3. An Athenian of the Deme Cerameis, celebrated for his amorous propensities towards those of his own sex, and for his attachment to the poet Agathon. Both Plato (Convivium, p. 176a., 180, c.; comp. Protag. p. 315d.) and Xenophon (Convivium, 8.32) introduce him. It has been supposed that Pausanias was the author of a separate erotic treatise; but Athenaeus (v. p. 216) affirms that no treatise of the kind existed.
