In Greek mythology, Iphicles (/ˈɪfɪˌkliːz/ or /ˈaɪfɪˌkliːz/; Ancient Greek: Ἰφικλῆς Iphikles) was the half maternal twin brother of Heracles, being the son of Alcmene and her human husband Amphitryon, whereas Heracles was her son by Zeus. He had a sister Laonome. Iphicles was the father of Heracles' charioteer Iolaus by Automedusa, daughter of Alcathous. He died in the battle against either Hippocoon or the Molionides. He was also sometimes called Iphiclus.
