Eurybiades was a Spartan general. He was appointed as the figurehead Spartan commander of the Hellenic fleet against Persia during the Persian wars in 480B.C.. He was the commander at Artemisium and Salamis, although Thermistocles was the real commanding figure in both of these encounters.

Although he was only a figurehead there is evidence that a statue to him was errected in Sparta.
