Greek mythology, Schoeneus (; Ancient Greek: Σχοινεύς Skhoineús, literally "rushy") was the name of several individuals:
Boeotian king, the son of Athamas and Themisto. He may have emigrated to  Arcadia, where a village Schoenous and a river Schoeneus flowing by it were believed to have been named after him, and where his children were believed to have originated from. He was the father of  Atalanta,  and also of the Arcadian  Clymenus.  Schoeneus, son of
Autonous (son of Melaneus) and Hippodamia. He was the brother of Erodius, Acanthus, Acanthis and Anthus. When the latter was killed by their father's horses, Zeus and Apollo pitied Schoeneus and transformed him into a bird.  Schoeneus, a man who reared Orestes, from whose home Orestes directed to Argos to avenge the death of his father on Clytaemnestra.
