In Greek mythology, Cynortas // or Cynortes // (Ancient Greek: Κυνόρτας) or Cynortus was a king of Sparta.
Cynortas was the son of King Amyclas of Sparta and Queen Diomede, and thus brother to King Argalus, Hyacinthus, Laodamia (or Leanira), Hegesandre, Harpalus, Polyboea and in other versions, of Daphne. He was the father of Oebalus or of Perieres, who either succeeded to the throne.
After the death of his brother Argalus, Cynortes inherited the kingdom and eventually became the king of Sparta. His tomb was shown near Scias at Sparta.
