Apollodorus of Carystus (gr. Aπoλλοδωρoς) in Euboea was one of the most important writers of the Attic New Comedy, who flourished in Athens between 300 and 260 B.C. He is to be distinguished from the older Apollodorus of Gela (342—-290), also a writer of comedy. A contemporary of Menander.

He wrote 47 comedies and obtained the prize five times. Terence borrowed his Hecyra and Phormio from the Ἑκυρα and Επιδικαζομενος of Apollodorus.
