Quintus Aurelius Symmachus (floruit 446) was a politician and a senator of the Western Roman Empire, belonging to the Symmachi family.


Probably the son of Quintus Fabius Memmius Symmachus (and therefore grandson of the orator Quintus Aurelius Symmachus), was the father of Quintus Aurelius Memmius Symmachus. He is probably the Symmachus to whom Macrobius Ambrosius Theodosius dedicated the work De differentiis vel societatibus graeci latinique verbi.

He was consul for the western court in 446, together with general Flavius Aetius.
