In Greek mythology, the name Ilioneus may refer to:

  • A Trojan elder, who implored Diomedes to spare him but was slain nevertheless.[3]
  • A companion of Aeneas. He was one of those whose ships sank during the storm in which Aeneas and his people were caught.[4] Being the eldest of the Trojan survivors with Aeneas, he is the first to speak to Dido when they enter her palace.[5]
