Alcibiades (1927-1957) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse.

Owned and bred by Hal Price Headley at his Beaumont Farm near Lexington, Kentucky, Alcibiades was named for the ancient Greek soldier and statesman, Alcibiades. She was sired by Supremus out of Regal Roman. On her sire's side she goes back to the great stallion, Domino.

Alcibiades was the U.S. Champion two-year-old filly of 1929 and the Co-Champion three-year-old filly of 1930. She won the Grade I Kentucky Oaks, the Clipsetta Stakes, the Debutante Stakes, and the Arlington Oaks. She retired from racing with a record of 7-2-4 in 23 starts with earnings of $47,860.

As a broodmare, Alcibiades gave birth to eight foals, seven of which were runners, the great Menow being one of them. Menow was the Champion two-year-old colt of 1937 and became an influential sire.
