), a writer on various subjects. Suidas (s. v.
) mentions that he wrote a work called Βοιωτικά
, in two books; also two books on the art of dyeing (βαφικά
), two on husbandry, and a work entitled δωδεκάτεχνον
, which Suidas explains (according to the emendation of Kuster, who gives ἔστι
for the old reading ἔτι
), to be an erotic work, περὶ αἰσχρῶν σχημάτων.
Some fragments from the treatise on husbandry are preserved in the Geoponica. Paxamus also wrote a culinary work, entitled ὀφαρτυτικά
, which, Suidas states, was arranged in alphabetical order. To this work an allusion is probably made by Athenaeus (ix. p. 376d).
