In Greek mythology, Ischys was the son of Elatus and Hippea and the lover of Coronis (the daughter of Phlegyas). Whilst Coronis was carrying Apollo's child, a white bird called a crow told Apollo (or possibly Artemis) of the affair between Ischys and Coronis. Apollo was so angry that he first turned the crow's feathers black and then killed Ischys.

Ischys was the brother of Aepytus, Pereus, Cyllen, and Stymphalus.
