Aglaulus (/əˈɡlɔːləs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄγλαυλος) or Agraulus (/əˈɡrɔːləs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄγραυλος) is a name attributed to three figures in Greek mythology.

  • Aglaulus, daughter of an incestuous relationship between Erectheus and his daughter Procris. Aglaulus is also known as Aglauros (most commonly), Aglaurus, Aglaulos, Agraulus, Agravlos, or Agraulos. Agraulos ("countryside flute") was probably the original form of the name, with the r and l commonly switched to produce the prevalent Aglauros form.
