Ἀλκμένης), an Athenian comic poet, apparently a contemporary of Aeschylus. One of his pieces is supposed to have been the Κολυμβῶσαι (the Female Swimmers). His works were greatly admired by Tynnichus, a younger contemporary of Aeschylus.

There was a tragic writer of the same name, a native of Megara, mentioned by Suidas. (Meineke, Hist. Crit. Comicorum Graec. p. 481; Suid. s. v. Ἀλκιμένης and Ἀλκμάν.)
