Rabbi Hilkiah (Hebrew :רבי חלקיה) was an Amora of the Land of Israel of the fourth generation of the Amoraic era. He was an Aggadist and his articles mostly dealt with this issue.

R. Hilkiah is mentioned dozens of times in the Jerusalem Talmud and the Midrash Aggadah, and once in the Babylon Talmud.[1] He was the pupil of R. Phinehas and a colleague of R. Simeon. The Midrash mentions a sage called Isaac ben Rabbi Hilkiah, who may very well be his son.[2]
