The painter also painted in red-figure (see Paseas [Red-figure]) and usually painted on white-ground. The name derives from a black-figure pinax (plaque) dedicated on the Athenian Acropolis (Athens, National Museum Acr. 2583; BAPD 301992), inscribed: “one of the paintings of Paseas.” It belongs to a series dedicated to Athena that feature the goddess, in one instance alongside Herakles. Other findspots are the Athenian Agora, Chiusi, Taranto, Vulci, and Cerveteri.
