{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} 118 Peitho is a main-belt asteroid. It is probably an S-type asteroid. It was discovered by R. Luther on March 15, 1872, and named after one of the two Peithos in Greek mythology. There have been two observed Peithoan occultations of a dim star: one was in 2000 and the other in 2003.<ref>{{#invoke:Citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=journal }}</ref><ref>NASA Planetary Data System</ref>

In 2009, Photometric observations of this asteroid were made at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The resulting asymmetrical light curve shows a synodic rotation period of 7.823 ± 0.002 hours with a brightness variation of 0.15 ± 0.02 in magnitude. This was reasonably consistent with independent studies performed in 1980 (7.78 hours) and 2009 (7.8033 hours).<ref name="Warner2009"/>
