Cydoemus /sɪˈdməs/ (Greek: Κυδοιμός Kudoimós) was the personification of the din of battle, confusion, uproar and hubbub. He is mentioned together with other personifications having to do with war.[1][2][3][4][5] A figure similar to him is Homados.

Kydoimos appears in Aristophanes' Peace as a character.[6]
