*Klei=tos or Κλειτός). 1. Son of Bardylis, king of Illyria. [See p. 463.] In B. C. 335, having received promise of aid from Glaucias, king of the Taulantians, he revolted from Alexander the Great. The latter accordingly invaded his country, and after a campaign, in which the advantage of the Illyrians and their allies lay entimely in the strong positions they were enabled to take up among their hills, compelled him to flee from his dominions and take refuge in those of Glaucias. Arrian mentions a dreadful sacrifice of three boys, three girls, and three black rams, offered by the Illyrians before their first battle with Alexander's troops. (Arr. Anab. 1.5, 6; Plut. Alex. 11; Diod. 17.8.)
