Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the Middle Czech unclear noun kloryt recorded in the inventory of Lords of Rosenberg (Rožmberk). According to musicologists, it denotes a musical instrument. The author identifies it as an appellation of the Renaissance and early Baroque wind instrument clareta, first mentioned in a German musicological treatise by Sebastian Virdung (1511), later called clarina. The author reconstructs the development of its original form klarét(a) > klorét > klorýt.
