Kleitias

Kleitias (Greek: Κλειτίας, variously transliterated Cleitias, Klitias, Clitias) was an Athenian vase painter of the black figure style who flourished c. 580-–550 BC. He is known from five vases, two cups, and a number of cup fragments. In all but one of these cases (one of the vases), Kleitias' signature appears as the painter, and Ergotimos as the potter. A variety of other fragments have been attributed to him on a stylistic basis.

Kleitias' most celebrated work today is the François Vase (c. 570 BC), which bears over two hundred figures in its six friezes.
