Charmadas, (or Charmides; 164/3-c. 95 BC) was an Academic philosopher and a disciple of Clitomachus at the Academy in Athens. He was a friend and companion (as he had been the fellow-pupil) of Philo of Larissa. He was teaching in Athens by 110 BC, and was clearly an important philosopher. He was still alive in 103 BC, but was dead by 91 BC. Cicero tells us that he was remarkable for his eloquence and for the great extent and retentiveness of his memory. His philosophical opinions were doubtless similar with those of Philo.
