Pherecydes of Leros

Pherecydes of Leros ( /fəˈrɛsɨˌdiːz/; c. 450s BC) was a Greek mythographer and logographer. He came from the island of Leros. Pherecydes spent the greater part of his working life in Athens, and so he was also called Pherecydes of Athens: the encyclopedic Byzantine Suda consider Pherecydes of Athens and of Leros separately.

Pherecydes of Leros should not be confused with Pherecydes of Syros, the mid-6th-century philosopher, who was one of the Seven Sages of Greece and was reputed to have been the teacher of Pythagoras.
