In Greek mythology, Deukalion (Ancient Greek: Δευκαλίων), was the king of Krete before his son Idomeneus succeeded him and led the kingdom into the Trojan War. He was the son of Minos and the grandson of Zeus.

Odysseus pretends to be his second son Aethon when he speaks to his wife while in disguise. It is unclear whether Aethon is a real son of Deukalion, left by Idomeneus to act as regent during the war, or invented by Odysseus.

Deukalion was also the father of Krete and of an illegitimate son Molus.
