Pithola'us

or PEITHOLA'US, or PYTHOLA'US (Πειθόλαος, Πυθόλαος), was one of the three brothers-in-law and murderers of Alexander of Pherae. In B. C. 352 Peitholaus and his brother Lycophron were expelled from Pherae by Philip of Macedon [LYCOPHRON, No. 5]; but Peitholaus re-established himself in the tyranny, and was again driven out by Philip in B. C. 349 (Diod. 16.52). He was honoured at one time with the Athenian franchise, but was afterwards deprived of it on the ground that it had been obtained by false pretences, (Dem. c. Neaer. p. 1376.) For Peitholaus. see also Arist. Rhet. 3.9.8, 10.7; Plut. Amat. 23
