Telecleides (Ancient Greek: Τηλεκλείδης) was an Athenian Old Comic poet, and dates to the 440s and 430s BCE. Only six titles and a few fragments of his plays survive. One of his plays was The Amphictyons, in which Telecleides presented a Golden Age of impossibly effortless plenty. His other known plays are Apseudeis, Eumenides, Hesiodoi, Prytanes, and Sterrhoi.

The standard edition of the fragments is Rudolf Kassel and Colin Austin (eds.), Poetae Comici Graeci.
