Perimedes (Περιμήδης) was a name attributed to several characters in Greek mythology.
- Perimedes, a son of Eurystheus and Antimache, was killed by the Athenians in the war that ensued when Athens refused to deliver the Heracleidae up to Eurystheus. Alternately, Perimedes, along with his brothers Eurybius and Eurypylus, was slain by Heracles when at a sacrificial meal in honor of his Twelve Labors being completed they served him a smaller portion of meat than they did for themselves.
- In the Odyssey, Perimedes was one of Odysseus's companions during his return voyage from Troy. He is very loyal to Odysseus throughout the story.
- Perimedes, a Centaur, son of Peuceus, who attended Pirithous's wedding and fought against the Lapiths.
- Lover of Athena before Odysseus and the goddess met.
