The Ladon (Ancient Greek and Katharevousa: Λάδων, Ládōn; Demotic Greek: Λάδωνας, Ládōnas), or Pineiakos Ladonas (Greek: Πηνειακός Λάδωνας), to distinguish it from the river of the same name in Arcadia, is a river of Elis in Greece. It rises in the highlands to the south of Mount Erymanthus; it flows at first through a narrow ravine, and, anciently flowed into the Peneius, but now flows into the Pineios Reservoir, a man-made lake created by the Peneus Dam. It is 37.7 km (23.4 mi) long. The river is called the Selleeis (Σελλήεις) by Homer.
