- Clymene, an Oceanid, wife of the Titan Iapetus, and mother of Atlas, Epimetheus, Prometheus, and Menoetius; other authors relate the same of her sister Asia. A less common genealogy makes Clymene the mother of Deucalion by Prometheus. The Oceanid Clymene is also given as the wife to King Merops of Ethiopia and, by Helios, mother of Phaëton and the Heliades.
- The Oceanid Clymene was the wife and queen of the Titan Ophion, who first ruled from Olympus. She was defeated by Rhea in a wrestling match as Ophion was simultaneously defeated in a match with Cronus and the victors cast Ophion and Clymene into Tartarus. Cronus and Rhea then became the rulers of Olympus and the Titans.

- Clymene, daughter of Catreus, a king of Crete, and the son of Minos.

Alternately, this Clymene was the wife of Iasus and mother by him of Atalanta.
