Primus of Alexandria, also Aprimos or Abriamus, was the Bishop of Alexandria from 106 to 118. He was among those baptized by the Apostle Mark and was among those ordained to the priesthood when Mark ordained Anianus a bishop.

Primus was installed as Bishop of Alexandria on June 16, 106, as the successor to Bp. Kedron. He reposed in the twelfth year of his reign.

He is remembered on the Coptic Synaxarion on the third day of Mesori.[1]
