In Greek mythology, Eudoros (Greek: Εὔδωρος) was one of the Myrmidons as well as the second of five commanders who served under Achilles during the Trojan War. He was a demigod, son of Hermes and Polymele.[1]

According to the Iliad, he commanded ten penteconters and five hundred Myrmidons. In Book XVI of the Iliad, when Patroclus readies Achilles's men, Homer talks about him for fourteen lines - more than any of the other commanders in this passage. He is also the second most notable of the five, beaten only by Phoenix.[2]
