Agesarchus (Greek: Αγήσαρχος) was an ancient Greek athlete from Triteia in Achaea. He was the son of Haemostratus, and won in the men's boxing competitions at all the Panhellenic Games. His victories have been dated around the 164th Olympiad in 120 BC, but might as well have occurred earlier during the 126th Olympiad in 272 BC. A statue in his honor was erected at Olympia, the work of the sons of Polycles.[1]
