I haven't tested the code, but I guess this should work:

import arcpy

# settings

gdb = r"C:\Path\to\your\FileGeodatabase.gdb"

arcpy.env.workspace = gdb

# create a list of rasters in the folder

rasters = arcpy.ListRasters()

# loop through raster in list

for raster in rasters:

    try:

        arcpy.Delete_management(raster)

    except:

        print "Raster '{0}' could not be deleted".format(raster)

Kind regards, Xander
