In Greek mythology, Clitus (Κλείτος) was the name of several individuals:

  1. One of the sons of Egypt (Αίγυπτος), murdered by the Danaede Clite (Κλείτη).
  2. A Trojan, son of Pisenoros (Πεισήνορος), friend of Polydamantos, whom Teukros killed.
  3. Son of Mantius, who was abducted by Eos because of his beauty. After his death, he was placed among other immortals.
  4. A lover of Pallene (Παλλήνη), daughter of Sithonos (Σίθωνος), king of Thrace. Clitus fought with Dryas to win Pallene, which he succeeded only through the help of Dryas' charioteer. Sithonos found out the truth and wanted to cast his daughter into the fire, but eventually it was put out by a rainstorm Aphrodite had sent. In the end, Sithon forgave the two lovers and married them.
