In Homer's Odyssey, Amphimedon (Ἀμφιμέδ-ων, -οντος) was the son of Melaneus and one of the suitors of Penelope. While retreating from Odysseus's party during the final stages of the battle in the latter's hall, he gave a glancing blow to the carapace of Telemachus, to whom he fell shortly afterwards.[1] In the Underworld, he told the story of the suitors' slaughter to Achilles and Agamemnon.[2]
