Aigosthena (en grec ancien: τὰ Αἰγόσθενα, n. pl.), ou Egosthena, ou sous forme francisée Ægosthènes, est une ancienne cité grecque fortifiée d'Attique, à environ 20 km au nord-ouest de Mégare, à laquelle la cité appartenait.

Situé sur la côte du golfe de Corinthe, le site abrite un port fortifié, construit dans une zone boisée et vallonnée. Les murs de la cité ont été préservés autour de la citadelle et le long du mur nord des fortifications. La citadelle abrite certaines des plus hautes tours de la Grèce antique encore debout. La citadelle est désormais située à proximité de Porto Germeno.
