Edwyn Robert Bevan OBE, FBA (15 February 1870, London – 18 October 1943, London) was a versatile English philosopher and historian of the Hellenistic world.

The Arabist Anthony Ashley Bevan was his brother, the conspiracy theorist Nesta Helen Webster was his youngest sister and the artist Robert Polhill Bevan a cousin.
