a Roman painter in the latter part of the first century B. C.
He was the grandson of that Q. Pedius who was the nephew of Julius Caesar, and his co-heir with Augustus (see above, No. 1): but, as he was dumb from his birth, his kinsman, the orator Messala, had him taught painting: this arrangement was approved of by Augustus, and Pedius attained to considerable excellence in the art, but he died while still a youth (Plin. Nat. 35.4. s. 7
). Muller places him at B. C. 34, but this is too early a date.
