In Greek mythology, Periphetes, also known as Corynetes or the Club-Bearer, was a son of Hephaestus and Anticleia. Like his father, he was lame in one leg. He lived in Epidauros, where he robbed travellers and killed them with his bronze or iron club. Theseus killed him and afterwards used the club as his own weapon.


He is mentioned in Apollodorus 3.15.8 and Pausanias 2.1.4
