In Greek mythology, Pronax (Ancient Greek: Πρώναξ) is the son of Talaus and Lysimache, and brother of Adrastus. The Nemean Games are supposed to have been instituted in his honour.[1]

Pronax' children were Lycurgus, who was believed to have been raised from the dead by Asclepius, and Amphithea, who married either Adrastus or Dion.[2]
