Glaucippe (Γλαυκίππη), in Greek mythology, is a name that may refer to:

  • Glaucippe, one of the Danaids, daughter of Danaus and Polyxo. She married (and murdered) Potamon, son of Aegyptus and Caliadne.[1] This Glaucippe is also mentioned by Hyginus. Due to his list of Danaids and Aegyptiads being poorly preserved, her husband's name is almost illegible here: *Niavius.[2]
  • Glaucippe, daughter of Xanthus and possible mother of Hecuba.[3]
