In Greek mythology, Hicetaon may refer to:
- Hicetaon, a son of King Laomedon of Troy, thus a brother of Priam and one of the Trojan elders. After Paris kidnapped Helen of Troy, Hicetaon suggested that she be returned to Menelaus to avoid war. His sons were: Melanippus, who died in the war Hicetaon had sought to avert; Critolaus, husband of Priam's daughter Aristomache; Thymoetes (in the Aeneid only, otherwise given as his brother); and, possibly, Antenor.
- Hicetaon, prince of Methymna, Lesbos, a son of Lepetymnus and Methymna. He and his brother Hypsipylus defended their home city against Achilles and fell in the battle.
