In Greek mythology, the name Hippocoön (/hɪˈpɒkˌɒn, -kəˌwɒn/; Ancient Greek: Ἱπποκόων, Ἱppokóōn) refers to several characters:

  • Hippocoon, a Thracian counsellor and a kinsman of Rhesus, who fought at Troy. Awakened by Apollo, he is the first to discover the damage caused by Odysseus and Diomedes in the Thracian camp.[4]
  • Hippocoon, in the Aeneid, son of Hyrtacus, one of the participants in the archery contest at Anchises's funeral games. His arrow misses, striking the mast to which the target dove is tied.[5]
