The Greek destroyer (Τορπιλλοβόλον) Doxa (Greek: Τ/Β Δοξα), named for the Greek word for glory, served in the Hellenic Royal Navy from 1907 - 1917.

The ship, along with her three sister ships of Niki Class destroyers, was ordered from Germany in 1905 and was built in the Vulcan shipyard at Stettin.

She saw action in the First Balkan War in 1913. During World War I, Greece belatedly entered the war on the side of the Triple Entente and, due to Greece's neutrality the four Niki Class ships were seized by the Allies in October, 1916, taken over by the French in November and served in the French Navy until 1917. On June 17, 1917, while under French command and with an all-French crew, Doxa was attacked and sunk by the German u-boat U-47 near the Greek island of Milos.
