- Paseas (sometimes known as the Cerberus Painter) is an Athenian red-figure vase-painter active ca. 525-510 BCE, who also painted
in black-figure (see Paseas [Black-figure]) and usually painted on white-ground. The name derives from a black-figure pinax
(plaque) dedicated on the Athenian Acropolis (Athens, Akr. National Museum 1.2583; BAPD 301992), inscribed: “one of the paintings
of Paseas.” It belongs to a series of plaques dedicated to Athena that features the goddess. The painter’s red-figure work
consists mostly of cups and plates. Other red-figure shapes are the lekythos and alabastron. Findspots include sites in Etruria
and the Athenian Acropolis.
