Alagonia (Ancient Greek: Ἀλαγονία) was a town of ancient Laconia, ancient Greece, near the Messenian frontier, belonging to the Eleuthero-Lacones, containing temples of the Greek gods Dionysus and Artemis. This town was 30 stadia distant from Gerenia.[1]

Its site is tentatively located near the modern Anatoliko.[2][3]
