In Greek mythology, Ialmenus was a son of Ares and Astyokhe, and twin brother of Askalaphus. Together with his brother, he sailed with the Argonauts, was among the suitors of Helen and led the Orkhomenian contingent in the Trojan War.

Unlike Askalaphus, Ialmenus survived the war. He was said to have ended up in Kolkhis, where he founded a colony, the inhabitants of which were later referred to as the "Akhaeans of Pontus".
