Piredede (Πιρέδεδε) was a village 9 kilometers east of Imranli in Pontos (current day Turkey), a village which still exists and has kept it's name. It was surrounded by Kurdish villages and was inhabited by 300 people, who were primarily agricultural farmers and who maintained their own church and school. Most of the inhabitants of the village perished and only a small number managed to find their way to Greece after many attempts. The teacher Eustathios Peliadis, who had a vision to open a Central Urban School in the region, was from Piredede. He taught in various schools in Tokat but was later displaced to Malateia.
