In Greek mythology, Phylacus founded the city of Phylace, Thessaly.[1] He was the son of Deioneus and Diomede, husband of Clymene (Periclymene), and the father of Iphiclus and Alcimede.[2][3][4] His children and grandchildren are sometimes referred to by the patronymic Phylacides.[5][6][7] His grandson through Iphiclus was also named Phylacus.[1]

Phylacus may also refer to:

  • A Trojan who was killed by Leitus.[8]
  • A hero who had a sanctuary in Delphi. He was one of the four heroes whose ghosts terrified the Gaulish troops that attacked Delphi.[9]
