In Greek mythology, Peirous or Peiroos (Ancient Greek: Πείροος) was a Thracian war leader from the city of Aenus and an ally of King Priam during the Trojan War. Peirous was the son of Imbrasus[1] and father of Rhygmus (who fought at Troy alongside his father). Peirous was killed by Thoas, leader of the Aetolians.[2]
