Leontis is a phyle which had twenty demes at the time of the creation of the phyle, which is at the time of the creation of a group of ten phylai.[1]

The phyle is shown on the base of a statue made after an anthippasia to commemorate the victory of the phyle at the mock battle.[2]

Themistocles belonged to this phyle.[3]

Two horse-men are listed as part of the Catalogus Hippeum in history who possibly belonged to this phyle, they were Euktimenos and Euthymenes, both living during the 3rd century B.C.E.[4][5]
