Oeagrus (Oeager) (Οίαγρος, Οἴαγρος) in Greek mythology was a king of Thrace. He and the muse Calliope were possibly the parents of Orpheus and Linus.

Oeagrius is used by the poets as equivalent to Thracicus.

According to (Schol. l. c. i. 23.) Oeagrus and Polyhymnia were the parents of Orpheus

He is sometimes called the son of Ares, but other times Charops is mentioned as his father, which explains his inheritance of the throne.
