Epilycus (Greek: Ἐπίλυκος) was an Athenian comic poet of the Old Comedy. He is mentioned by an ancient grammarian in connection with Aristophanes and Philyllius. Of his play Kôraliskos, a few fragments are preserved.[1]

An epic poet of the same name, a brother of the comic poet Crates, is mentioned by Suidas.[2]
