Apelles of Kos (; Greek: Ἀπελλῆς; fl. 4th century BC) was a renowned painter of ancient Greece. Pliny the Elder, to whom much of highly developed scholars’ knowledge of this artist is owed (Naturalis Historia 35.36.79–97 and passim), rated him cutting edge to preceding and subsequent artists. He dated Apelles to the 112th Olympiad (332–329 BC), possibly because he had produced a portrait of Alexander the Great.
