3. A painter who seems, from the manner in which he is mentioned by Pliny, to have been a disciple of Pausias; and if so, he must have flourished about the latter half of the fourth century B. C., or between B. C. 340-300. His pictures were extremely popular. As examples of them, Pliny mentions Aesculapius and his daughters, Hygia, Aegle, Panacea, and Iaso; and also a slothful fellow, or perhaps a personification of Sloth (piger qui appellatur Oenos), making a rope of broom (spartum), which an ass gnaws away at the other end as fast as he twists it. (Plin. Nat. 35.11. s. 40.31.)
