Peleces or Pelekes (Ancient Greek: Πήληκες) were three demoi of ancient Attica, forming a community, as τρίκωμολ, and probably, therefore, adjacent. If the reading in Thucydides is correct, διὰ Κρωπειᾶς, these demoi should be placed in the north of the Athenian plain, but many editors read διὰ Κεκροπίας.
