In Greek mythology, the name Halaesus or Halesus may refer to:

Halesus, a companion of Agamemnon during the Trojan War; some state that he was an illegitimate son of Agamemnon.[1] After the war, having escaped the massacre organized by Clytaemnestra and Aegisthus of Agamemnon and his retinue, he travelled to Italy and founded the city of Falerii (now Civita Castellana), which received its name after him.[2][3][4][5] He joined Turnus in the war against Aeneas,[6] "not because he liked Turnus but because of the hate caused by his ancient hostility (towards Aeneas)", as Servius remarks.[1] He was killed by Pallas while defending Imaon, a fellow warrior.[7]

Halesus, a Lapith, who was killed by the Centaur Latreus at the wedding of Pirithous and Hippodamia.[8]
