Arrachion (died c. 564 BCE), alternatively Arrhichion of Phigalia, was a champion pankratiast who participated in the Olympic Games during the 6th century BCE.

During the 564 BCE Olympic Games, Arrachion won his game posthumously after he was illegally suffocated by his opponent during a bout, which led to his death. His corpse was then pronounced the winner in the aftermath.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War, a group of bandits set up their camp within the ruins of a racecourse, naming it after Arrachion.[2]
