Beniamin "Benik" Egishevitch Markarian (Armenian: Բենիամին Եղիշեի Մարգարյան; born 29 November 1913 in Shulaver, Tiflis Governorate; died 29 September 1985 in Yerevan, Armenian SSR) was an Armenian astrophysicist. Markarian's Chain (of galaxies) was named after him when he discovered that this string of galaxies moves with a common motion. He is also the namesake of a catalog of compact, optically bright galaxies (including both starbursts and AGNs) known as Markarian galaxies.
