Αὐτομέδων), of Cyzicus, a Greek epigrammatic poet.

He must have lived in the first century of the Christian era, as one of his poems is addressed to Nicetes, a distinguished orator in the reign of Nerva. One of the epigrams usually attributed to Theocritus (Anth. Graec. 7.534; No. 9, in Kiessling's edition of Theocritus, p. 778) has in the manuscript the inscription Αὐτομέδοντος Αἰτωλοῦ : if this is correct there must have been an Aetolian poet of the name of Automedon.



Twelve of his epigrams are contained in the Greek Anthology. (5.129, 10.23, 11.29, 46, 50, 319, 324-326, 346, 361, 12.34.)
