The daughter of Pandareus and sister of Cameira. They were reared as orphans by Athena and received gifts from other goddesses: from Hera wisdom and beauty of form, from Artemis high stature, from Athena schooling in the works that befit women. When Aphrodite ascended into heaven, she wished to secure for the girls a happy marriage, but in her absence they were carried off by the Harpies and given by them to the Erinyes.


Polygnotus painted Clytia and Cameira as girls crowned with flowers and playing with dice.
