The Warrior of Grezan (also known as Le Guerrier de Grezan) is a pre-Roman representation of a Gallic warrior. The three-quarter length statue is one of the better examples of pre-Roman art depicting Gallic or Celtic people. The figure wears a torc necklace and pendant, in addition to a breastplate and a kind of helmet or ornate hood.

The statue was made in Grezan (Gard), France sometime after the 7th Century BCE and prior to the mid 1st Century BCE. The statue is currently in the collection of the Archaeology Museum of Nimes, in France.
