HMS Ethalion was a 38-gun Artois-class fifth rate frigate of the Royal Navy. Joseph Graham, of Harwich, built and launched her on 14 March 1797. In her brief career before she was wrecked in 1798 on the Welsh coast, she participated in a major battle and in the capture of two privateers and a rich prize. Ethalion entered service in 1797, operating in the English Channel as part of the Channel Fleet. Soon after commissioning in April under Captain George Countess, Ethalion was engaged in chasing a French squadron under Jean-Baptiste-Francois Bompart intent on invading Ireland during the Rebellion of 1798.
