Clymene was a Titan goddess in Greek mythology, daughter of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys, thus making her an Oceanid. She was the goddess of renown, fame, and infamy. She was married to the Titan Iapetus, and they had four sons, Atlas, Epimetheus, Prometheus and Menoetius. She was also a consort of Helios, with whom she had a son, Phaeton, and the Heliades.
There were many other figures with the same name in Greek mythology. One Clymene was a servant of the famous Helen of Troy, daughter of Hippalces and Aethra and half-sister of Theseus. Another Clymene was the daughter of Catreus, and along with her sister Aerope, she was sold away out of her father's fear that he would be killed by his children. This Clymene was later married to Nauplius, with whom she had three sons, Palameded, Oeax and Nausimedon.
