Panagiotis Anagnostopoulos (Greek: Παναγιώτης Αναγνωστόπουλος, 1790-1854) was a Greek revolutionary leader during the Greek War of Independence and a member of Filiki Eteria.

He was born in Andritsaina around 1790 and was part of a poor family. In 1818 emigrated with his family to Smyrna (now Izmir) while he attended a school in Constantinople (now Istanbul). He then relocated to Odessa where he worked at Athanssios Sekeris where he met Nikolaos Skoufas with whom he was initiated into Filiki Eteria.

He died in 1854 in Athens from cholera, transmitted from an English-French soldier. In 1884, he was honoured with a central road in Kolonaki.
