Phrearrhii or Phrearrhioi or Phrearroi (Greek: Φρεάρριοι) was a deme of the coastal (paralia) region of ancient Attica, belonging to the Leontis tribe (phyle), with nine to ten representatives in the Boule.[1]

It was situated roughly 30 km (20 mi) south-east of Athens, bordering the deme of Anaphlystos to the south-west, just north of Attic Olympus, close to modern Pheriza (Φέριζα), in the Lavreotiki municipality.[1]

The Athenian statesman Themistocles was a native of Phrearrhioi.[1]

Its site is located east of modern Olymbos.[2][3]
