Pyhia or Pyihia or Petepihu (p3-ỉḥỉ3) was an Ancient Egyptian princess during the 18th dynasty, a daughter of Thutmose IV.[2]

Her mummy was reburied in the Sheikh Abd el-Qurna cache along with that of several other princesses: her probable sisters Amenemopet and Tiaa; her niece Nebetia and Princesses Tatau, Henutiunu, Merytptah, Sithori and Wiay.[3] The tomb was discovered in 1857.
