Argaman (Hebrew: אַרְגָּמָן‎, lit. Crimson) is a moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley eight kilometres north of the Damia Bridge with an area of 4,500 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 166.

The village was established in 1968 as a Nahal settlement, and was converted to a civilian moshav in 1971. Its name is an acronym for Arik Regev and Gad Mandel, two Nahal commanders who were killed whilst pursuing terrorists. A crisis in 1973 resulted in most of the residents leave.

Argaman is also host to the Amichai Mechina
