Alagonia (Ancient Greek: Template:Polytonic) was a town of Laconia, ancient Greece, near the Messenian frontier, belonging to the Eleuthero-Lacones, containing temples of the Greek gods Dionysus and Artemis. This town was 30 stadia distant from Gerenia, but its site is unknown,[1] although it may be synonymous with the modern district within Kalamata, in the prefecture of Messenia.[2]

The city was named after the mythological Alagonia, a daughter of Zeus and Europa.[1][3][4]
