Doriskos (Ancient Greek: Δορίσκος) was an ancient Greek[1] city located in Thrace, located in the region between the river Nestos to the river Hebros. It was a fortified stronghold located in the homonymous plain and beach extending west of the Hebros delta and east of the peraia of Samothrace, actually located in the river bank and probably controlling an important crossing point. It was called a polis by Stephanus of Byzantium.

A village with the same name exists today near the Hebros river delta and the town of Feres.
