Clement (Greek: Κλήμης), (? – after 1667) was Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople for 42 days in 1667.

He was the metropolitan of Iconium when he was elected Patriarch on 9 September 1667. He was an uneducated and brusque person and his election was not recognised. The Holy Synod protested to Sultan Mehmet IV, who dismissed him on 21 October 1667.
