Euphranor of Corinth (middle of the 4th century BC) was a Greek artiste who excelled both as a sculptor and as a painter.

Pliny the Elder provides a list of his works including a cavalry battle, a Theseus, and the feigned madness of Odysseus among the paintings; and Paris, Leto with her kids Apollo and Artemis, and Philip and Alexander in chariots in the midst of the statues.

No known existing statues have been identified as copies from works of Euphranor (but see a series of attributions by Six in Jahrbuch, 1909, 7 foil.). His put on an act appears to have resembled that of his contemporary Lysippus, notably in the attention he paid to symmetry, in his preference for being forms slighter than those normal in earlier art, and in his adore of audacious subjects. He wrote a (now lost) treatise on proportions.

He was a contemporary of Antorides, and, like him, studied under Ariston.
