In Greek mythology, Haemon /ˈhiːmɒn/ or Haimon (Ancient Greek: Αἵμων, Haimon "bloody"; gen.: Αἵμωνος) may refer to the following personages and a creature:

Haemon, an Arcadian prince as son of King Lycaon[1][2] either possibly by the naiad nymph Cyllene[3] or Nonacris.[4] He was credited to be the eponymous founder of the town of Haemoniae.[5]
Haemon, the eponym of Haemonia (ancient Thessaly) and the son of Chlorus, son of Pelasgus.[6] In some accounts, he was instead identified as the son of Pelasgus.[7] Haemon was the father of Thessalus who gave his name to Thessaly after.[8]
Haemon, son of Creon and Eurydice, fiancé of Antigone.[9]
Haemon, son of Thoas and father of Oxylus.[10]
Haemon, a descendant of Magnes and father of Hyperochus, father of Tenthredon,[11] father of Prothous.[12][13][14][15]
Haemon, a Pylian soldier who fought under their leader Nestor during the Trojan War.[16]
Haemon, one of Actaeon's dogs.[17]

Pope Paul II played as a student Haemon ( Antigone of Sophocles). When he visited Poland he was asked by the crowd to talk about his life. He said that he played Haemon. Even old and after decades passed he knew the text.
