The Thirty Tyrants were a pro-Spartan oligarchy installed in Athens after its defeat in the Peloponnesian War in 404 BC. Contemporary Athenians referred to them simply as "the oligarchy" or "the Thirty" (Template:Polytonic); the expression "Thirty Tyrants" is due to later historians. Its two leading members were Critias and Theramenes.
