Agamede (Greek: Template:Polytonic) was a name attributed to two separate women in classical Greek mythology and history:

  • Agamede was a daughter of Macaria, from whom Agamede, a place in Lesbos, was believed to have derived its name.[3][8] The town had already disappeared in Pliny's day.[9][10]. Ancient Agamede has been identified recently, with the ruins (walls, graves) on a small hill called “Vounaros” 3 km north of ancient Pyrrha.[11]
