Kekaumenos ( el|Κεκαυμένος) is the family name of the otherwise unidentified Byzantine
author of the ''Strategikon
'', a manual on military and household affairs
composed c. 1078. He was apparently of Georgian-Armenian origin and the grandson of the ''doux
'' of Hellas
. Despite relevant suppositions, there exists no concrete evidence that he is the famous 11th century general Katakalon Kekaumenos
, or his son.
His father-in-law was Nikulitzas Delphinas
, a lord of Larissa
who took part in the Vlach
revolt in 1066.
