Pausanias, an Athenian of the deme Kerameis, was the lover of the poet Agathon. He appears in the Socratic dialogues of both Plato (Symposium, p. 176, a., 180, c.; Protagoras, p. 315, d.) and Xenophon (Symposium, 8. 32). It has been supposed that Pausanias was the author of a separate erotic treatise, but Athenaeus (Deipnosophistae, book v., p. 216) knew of no books at all by him.
