There are several characters named Acamas ("unwearying") in Greek mythology. The following three all fought in the Trojan War, and only the first is not mentioned by Homer.

Acamas (son of Theseus)

Akamas, Fontana Amorosa

Acamas was the son of Phaedra and Theseus. When his father was exiled from Athens, he was sent to Euboea with his half-brother Demophoon. There, they grew to adulthood and joined Euboea's King Elephenor in the Trojan War, where they fought on the side of the Greeks. Acamas and Demophoon are not mentioned in Homer's Iliad, but later authors mention that Acamas was one of the men inside the Trojan Horse. Acamas was either betrothed or married to Phyllis, but he abandoned her.

Acamas (son of Eusorus)

This Acamas was son of Eusorus, and resident of Aenus on the eastern coast of Thrace. With his comrade Peiros, son of Imbrasus, Acamas led a contingent of Thracian warriors to the Trojan War. Acamas was killed by Odysseus.

Acamas (son of Antenor)

With his brother Archelochus and his cousin Aeneas, Acamas, son of Antenor, led the Dardanian contingent to assist King Priam. He was killed by Odysseus.
