Clymene (mythology)

In Greek mythology, the name Clymene or Klymene (;[1][2] Ancient Greek: Κλυμένη) may refer to:

  • Clymene, daughter of Catreus. She and her sister Aerope were given to Nauplius to be sold away, as Catreus feared the possibility of being killed by one of his children. Nauplius took Clymene to wife, and by him she became mother of Palamedes, Oeax and Nausimedon.[20]
  • Clymene, one of the Trojan women taken captive at the end of the Trojan War.[30] She might or might not be the same as the servant of Helen mentioned above.
