In Greek mythology, there were several people named Anthedon (Ancient Greek: Ἀνθηδών means "rejoicing in flowers"[1]) — at least two male and one female.

Anthedon, possible father of Glaucus, a sea god — whose mother might have been Alcyone.[2]
Anthedon, son of Dius and grandson of Anthas, thus great-grandson of Poseidon and Alcyone, eponym of the town Anthedon in Boeotia.[3]
Anthedon, the Naiad nymph of Anthedon, Boeotia.[4]
