Known from a pair of poems composed by Pindar, Hagesidamus was a native of Locri Epizephyri and a victorious boxer from the Olympics of 476 BC.

He who competed in the boy boxing event and his trainer Ilas are compared in Pindar's Olympian 10.16-21 with Patroclus and Achilles which is suggested by some a pederastic relation existed between trainer and athlete.
