For the lover of Aegypius, see Aegypius (mythology).

In Greek mythology, Timandra (Τιμάνδρα) was one of the daughters of Leda and Tyndareus.[1] Timandra married Echemus, the king of Arcadia, and with him had a son named Ladocus.[2] Like her half-sister Helen and sister Clytemnestra, she was also unfaithful and deserted Echemus for Phyleus, the king of Dulichium.[3]
