Pseudo-Plutarch is the conventional name given to the unknown authors of a number of pseudepigrapha attributed to Plutarch.

Some of these works were included in some editions of Plutarch's Moralia. Among these are

These works date to slightly later than Plutarch, but they all date to Late Antiquity (3rd to 4th century AD).

One pseudepigraphal philosophical work, De fato (included in editions of Plutarch's Moralia) is thought to be a 2nd century Middle Platonic work.

Some works ascribed to Plutarch are likely of medieval origin, such as the Letter to Trajan.
