The Group of Zeus and Ganymede is a multi-figure terracotta statue group. The late archaic artwork depicting Zeus taking the youthful Ganymede to Mount Olympus was created in the first quarter of the fifth century and is now displayed near where it was originally found in the Archaeological Museum of Olympia.

The group was probably the acroterion of one of the treasuries at Olympia; earlier theories suggested it was contemporary with theTemple of Zeus. The size of the figure is unusual - it is less than life size, but well over the normal size for a terracotta figure. The work is dated to around 480-470 BC, the transitional period between the archaic and the classical periods, and is attributed to a Corinthian workshop.
