In Greek mythology, Pelopia or Pelopea or Pelopeia (Ancient Greek: Πελόπεια) was a name attributed to four individuals:

Pelopia, one of the Niobids. She was slain by Artemis.[1][2]
Pelopia, daughter of Pelias and either Anaxibia or Phylomache, daughter of Amphion.[3] She appears briefly in the Argonautica, giving her brother Acastus a mantle of double fold before he sails off with the Argonauts.[4] She and her sisters killed their father, having been tricked by Medea into believing this was needed to rejuvenate him.[5]
Pelopia, mother of Cycnus by Ares.[6]
Pelopia, daughter of Thyestes by whom she mothered Aegisthus.[7]
