A Laconian poetess. Aristophanes mentions [her] in [his] Danaids.[1]

[1] Aristophanes fr. 261 Kock, from a scholiast to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 1237. In fact "Kleitagora" was the name of a well-known skolion (drinking-song), and nothing about its female subject is certain beyond her name. That she was Laconian (as here) or Thessalian (scholion to Aristophanes, Wasps 1245-7) are contextual guesses. See, to this effect: Aristophanes, Wasps, edited with introduction and commentary by Douglas M. MacDowell (Oxford 1971) 293; Aristophanes, Lysistrata, edited with introduction and commentary by Jeffrey Henderson (Oxford 1987) 209.
