Eurymedousa (or Eurymedusa; Greek Εὐρυμέδουσα) is a name attributed to several women in Greek mythology.

  • Eurymedousa, daughter of Cletor or Achelous. Zeus changed her into an ant and then raped her, also impregnating her. As a result, she gave birth to Myrmidon.[1][2]
  • Eurymedousa, possible mother of the Charites by Zeus.[4]
