In Greek mythology, Eurydice (Greek: Εὐρυδίκη) was wife to Acrisius, king of Argos, mother of Danaë and therefore maternal grandmother to Perseus. She was said to have been a daughter to Lacedaemon and Sparta, the legendary founders of Sparta.

She is not to be confused with the nymph of the same name who married Orpheus.
