  Pausanias (Regent) - LoveToKnow 1911
PAUSANIAS (5th century B.C.), Spartan regent and commander, of the Agiad family, son of Cleombrotus and nephew of Leonidas, the hero of Thermopylae.
Pausanias was recalled by the ephors and, though acquitted on the main charge of Medism, was not again sent out in any official position.
To commemorate Leonidas and Pausanias a yearly festival was held, at which speeches were made extolling their victories; this was still celebrated when the geographer Pausanias visited Sparta more than six centuries later (Paus.

 Pausanias Description of Ancient Sikyon
A possible entrance of Pausanias from the northwest side of the plateau, must be dismissed, the reason being there are no springs and caves there, second he would have seen the Stadium, which he does not mention and third it is an unnatural entrance because Pausanias was coming from the east (Corinth), not the west.
Pausanias continues his description by visiting the Gymnasium of Agora's, in which another Herakles made by Skopas stood, nearby was the sanctuary of Herakles whose perivolos was known as "Paidizoi", a place for children to play.

 Behind the Mask of Agamemnon
Schliemann next turned his attention to Mycenae, where the ancient geographer Pausanias had located the grave of Agamemnon, the leader of the Greek assault on Troy, and his fellow soldiers.
Unlike previous scholars, Schliemann interpreted Pausanias as meaning the Homeric graves were within the walls of the late Bronze Age citadel, not outside.
With great joy I announce to Your Majesty that I have discovered the tombs which the tradition proclaimed by Pausanias indicates to be the graves of Agamemnon, Cassandra, Eurymedon and their companions, all slain at a banquet by Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthos.

 Alalcomenae
Stephanus of Byzantium and the geographer Pausanias — and probably Homer — preserve the story that it was named after Alalcomeneus (Pausanias) or Alalkomenes (Stephanus), who raised the goddess Athena there, acting as her foster-father.[4]
Pausanias recalls a story that the Roman general Sulla stole the icon of Athena from the temple, and in revenge Athena sent a plague of lice upon him; but afterwards the temple was neglected.
The ancient geographer Strabo refers to an Alalcomenae on the tiny island of Asteria, between Ithaca and Kefalonia (Homer calls the island Asteris).

The most usual setting for the story of Semele is the palace that occupied the acropolis of Thebes, called the Cadmeia.
When Pausanias (geographer), visited Thebes in the 2nd century CE, he was shown the very bridal chamber where Zeus visited her and begat Dionysus.
Since a seal inscription found at the palace can be dated 14th-13th centuries BCE, (Kerenyi 1976 p 198) the myth of Semele is Mycenaean in origin, pre-Hellenic.
