Argia or Argeia is a name borne by four minor characters in Greek mythology. These are:
- Argia, one of the Oceanids. She was the mother of Phoroneus by her brother Inachus. She may also have been the mother (by Inachus) of Io.
- Argea (sometimes reported as Argia), daughter of king Adrastus of Argos and Amphithea, daughter of Pronax. She married Polynices, son of Oedipus and bore him three sons: Thersander, Adrastus and Timeas.
- Argeia (sometimes reported as Argia), the wife of Polybus and mother of Argus, the builder of the ship Argo from the story of Jason and the Argonauts.
- Argia, daughter of king Autesion of Thebes. She married Aristodemus and became the mother of twins, Eurysthenes and Procles, the ancestors of the two royal houses of Sparta.
