Exadios the Backbreaker (died 429 BCE) was a mercenary hired by the Order of Hunters, who operated in Makedonia during the Peloponnesian War.

Annoyed by all the Order's mercenaries "ruining [her] view" in Amphipolis, Natakas' friend Ide complained about them to anyone who would listen. When she crossed paths with the Spartan misthios Kassandra, Ide asked Kassandra to get rid of them, promising her wine. Before they could share the toast and enjoy the view together, Exadios stabbed Ide in the back. In retaliation, Kassandra hunted her down to the docks of Amphipolis and slew her.[1]
