Paxamus, or Paxamos (Greek: Πάξαμος), was an ancient Greek author from the Hellenistic period. He wrote a cookbook (On Cooking) and a book on farming (On Farming). Athenaeus, another Greek writer, mentioned Paxamus once in his book titled Deipnosophists. Paxamus possibly created barley biscuits named after him called "paximathia". He was quoted in the Geoponica, a Byzantine book on agriculture.
