Kleite ( Greek  Κλείτη , "the famous", Latin Clite ) is a daughter of Merops Perkosios in Greek mythology .

Shortly after the wedding with the Dolion king Kyzikos , the son of Aineus , Kleite had to mourn the death of his husband. He was killed in a fighting game with the Argonauts . Although the Argonauts mourned, shaved their heads and held funeral games , the mourning remained too great that she hanged herself from a tree at night. The Kleite spring originated from her tears or the weeping nymphs of the grove.
