In Greek mythology, Eurybates (Εὐρυβάτης) was the herald for the Greek armies during the Trojan War. He served as Odysseus's squire. He was described by Odysseus to Penelope as "round-shouldered, dark-skinned, and curly-haired." Odysseus is said to pay him greater regard than any other of his companions for his honesty and faithfulness.[1]

He, along with Talthybius, were sent by Agamemnon to retrieve Briseis from Achilles' camp.
