The wife of king Clymenus of Orchomenus, and by him the mother of five sons — Arrhon, Azeus, Erginus, Pyleus, and Stratius — and two daughters — Axia and Eurydice. Budeia is sometimes identified with Buzyge, a daughter of Lycus.1

The Boeotian town of Budeion was named for her,2 although others attribute it to the Argive hero Budeion.
