The gens Alfena or Alfenia was a Roman family, known from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD. The gens is known chiefly from three individuals, one of whom attained the consulship. They all shared the cognomen Varus, and may have been closely related.
- (Publius) Alfenus Varus, a jurist and pupil of Servius Sulpicius Rufus.
- Publius Alfenius Varus, perhaps the son of the jurist, consul in AD 2.
- Alfenus or Alfenius Varus, perhaps a descendant of the jurist, a general in the service of Aulus Vitellius in AD 69.
