Ageladas (Αγελάδας), or (as the name is spelt in an inscription) Hagelaidas, was a great Argive sculptor, who flourished in the latter part of the 6th and the early part of the 5th century BC.

He was specially noted for his statues of Olympic victors (of 520, 516, 508 BC); also for a statue at Messene of Zeus, copied on the coins of that city. Ageladas was said to have been the teacher of Myron, Phidias and Polyclitus; this tradition is a testimony to his wide fame, though historically doubtful.

We have no work of Ageladas surviving; but we have an inscription which contains the name of his son Argeiadas.
