Åke Henriksson Tott (or Achatius Tott) (1598–1640) was a Swedish soldier and politician. His estates included Ekolsund in Sweden, Sjundeby in Finland, Polchow in Swedish Pomerania and Lihula in Swedish Livonia.
In the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648), he commanded troops at the Battle of Grubin, in 1627 and the Battle of Breitenfeld, in 1631. King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden is said to have called him "the snow plow, who is going to clear the path for the rest".
He married Sigrid Bielke (1607–1634), and fathered Clas Åkesson Tott the younger, and Åke Henrik Åkesson Tott.
