In Greek mythology, Imbrius (Ancient Greek: Ἵμβριος "native of Imbros"), son of Mentor, was a defender of Troy. According to the Iliad, Imbrius originated from Pedaeum and was married to Medesicaste, an illegitimate daughter of King Priam; when the Greeks landed at Troy, Imbrius moved to the house of his father-in-law, who treated him like his own son. Imbrius fought at the walls of Troy and was killed by Teucer.[1][2]

Imbrius also occurs as a surname of Eetion.[3]
