Chalciope (/ˌkælˈsaɪ.əpiː/; Ancient Greek: Χαλκιόπη, romanized: Khalkiópē means "bronze-face"), in Greek mythology, is a name that may refer to several characters.

Chalciope, daughter of King Aeetes of Colchis, sister of Medea and wife of Phrixus, by whom she had four sons: Argus, Phrontis, Melas and Cytisorus (some authors add Presbon).[1][2][3][4] When Aeetes was dethroned and banished by his brother Perses, Chalciope expressed great filial devotion and stayed by her father's side,[5] even though he had killed her husband.[2] Hesiod referred to her as Iophossa,[6] and Pherecydes as Euenia.[7]
Chalciope, daughter of Rhexenor[8] (or of Chalcodon[9][10]) and the second wife of Aegeas. She bore him no heirs.
Chalciope, daughter of Eurypylus of Cos, mother of Thessalus by Heracles.[11][12]
Chalciope, consort of the aforementioned Thessalus, mother of his son Antiphus,[13] presumably also of Pheidippus and Nesson.[14][15]
Chalciope or Chalcippe, daughter of Phalerus.[16]
Chalciope, mother of the musician Linus by Apollo.[17]
