There were eight figures named Elatus /ˈɛlətəs/ or Élatos (Ἔλατος) in Greek mythology.

  • Elatus, a Centaur, killed during a battle with Heracles by a poisoned arrow that passed through his arm and continued to wound Chiron in the knee.[7]
  • Elatus, a son of Arcas, brother of Apheidas and Azan. He was allotted by Arcas the region of then-nameless Mount Cyllene as his domain, but afterwards migrated to the region which later became known as Phocis, and assisted the local inhabitants in the war against the Phlegyans; he was renowned as founder and eponym of the city Elatea.[9] An image of him was carved on a stele in the marketplace of Elatea.[10] He married Laodice (daughter of Cinyras) and became by her father of Stymphalus, Pereus, Aepytus, Ischys, and Cyllen.[11]
  • Elatus or Elaton, a charioteer of Amphiaraus,[13] otherwise known as Baton.
  • Elatus, father of Euanippe, who was the mother of Polydorus by Hippomedon.[14]
