Evagrius of Constantinople was bishop of Constantinople for a brief period in 370, and then possibly again in 379/380.

Little is known about Evagrius other than he was a follower of the Nicene doctrines. In 370, after the death of Eudoxius, an arian, who had been bishop of Constantinople for eleven years, the Arians immediately elected Demophilus to fill the vacancy at Constantinople. The Nicenes elected Evagrius for that see; but a few months later he was banished by emperor Valens, and remained in exile until his death in about the year 380.

Some sources claim that he was elected a second time in 379 or 380, after the expulsion of Demophilus by emperor Theodosius I.
