In Greek mythology, the name Cydon (Κύδων) may refer to:
- Cydon of Crete, eponym of Cydonia. According to one version, he was a son of Tegeates and brother of Gortys and Archedius: the three brothers were said to have migrated to Crete from Arcadia. Alternately, Cydon was a native of Crete, son of Acacallis by Hermes or Apollo. He is probably the same as Cydon, the father of Eulimene.
- Cydon of Thebes, name shared by three defenders of Thebes against the Seven:
- Cydon of Lemnos, half-brother of Hypsipyle. Was slain by Myrmidone the night all Lemnian men were killed by their women.
- Cydon, an ally of Turnus, lover of Clytius. Clytius fell in the battle against Aeneas.
- Cydon, one of the horses of Hippodamus.
