Spalahores was an Indo-Scythian ruler, brother of king Vonones. They reigned in areas of the North-western South Asia between around 75 BCE to 65 BCE.

Spalahores was mentioned on the coins of Vonones, as his brother, together with Spalahores' son Spalagadames.

Spalahores apparently did not strike coins on his own, but was mentioned on most of the coins of Vonones. He was probably identical with Spalirises (in Greek on the obverse legend of coins), who mints as king in the following period.
