Spyridon Tetenes (Greek: Σπυρίδων Τετενές; 1908 – 24 July 1977) was a Greek diplomat who was Foreign Minister after the coup d'état of November 25, 1973, by Brigadier General Dimitrios Ioannidis against the junta of George Papadopoulos.

He resigned his post on July 8, 1974 due to his frustrations that the military regime was bypassing diplomatic channels in what would later be the attempted coup in Cyprus. He died in Geneva, on 24 July 1977. He was survived by his wife, Marika.
