Georg Kaibel (October 30, 1849 - October 12, 1901) was a German classical philologist born in Lübeck.

He studied classical philology at the Universities of Göttingen and Bonn. At Bonn he was a pupil of Hermann Usener and Franz Bücheler. In 1872-74 he was a member of the German Archaeological Institute in Rome, where he became a close associate to Theodor Mommsen and Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff. Afterwards he taught classes in Elberfeld and at the Askanische Oberschule in Berlin.

In 1879 he became an associate professor of classical philology at the University of Breslau, followed by professorships at Rostock (1882), Greifswald (1883) and Strasbourg (1886). In 1897 he returned to Göttingen, where he was elected a full member of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences.

Kaibel was a leading authority of Greek epigraphy and epigrammatics. He also published several editions of works from the Second Sophistic era, as well as highly regarded editions of Sophocles' "Electra" and "Antigone". From 1882 to 1901 he was editor of the journal "Hermes", and contributed many articles on Greek comedy to the first four volumes of Georg Wissowa's Realencyclopädie der Classischen Altertumswissenschaft (1894-1901).
