Theophilos Corydalleus (Greek: Θεόφιλος Κορυδαλ(λ)εύς, Theofilos Koryda(l)leus; 1563–1646), was a Greek Neo-Aristotelian philosopher.


Corydalleus was born in Korydallos, which was renamed from Pachy in 1923 to honour him. He taught Italian, Greek, and Latin in Athens and Constantinople, and translated numerous texts from Latin, such as those by Cesare Cremonini, who was one of his teachers. He was appointed Director of the Academy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in 1624 by Patriarch Cyril I.[1]
