In Greek mythology, Eurybia (Ancient Greek: Εὐρυβία, Εὐρυβίη), "who has a heart of flint within her",[1] was the consort to the titan Crius and gave birth to Astraios, Perses, and Pallas.[2] She was a minor sea goddess under the dominion of Poseidon. Her parents were Pontos[3] and Gaia.[4]

Thespius's daughter is also named Eurybia. She bore Heracles a son, Polylaus.
