κλητῆρες) or Cletŏres (κλήτορες). Summoners; persons who at Athens were witnesses to the prosecutor of a suit, that he had served the defendant with a notice of the action brought against him and of the day on which it would be necessary for him to appear for the first examination of the case. They were not, therefore, court officials, but only agents of the prosecutor, and their names were subscribed to his declaration. See Meier, Att. Process, pp. 212, 576.
