Nicetas was the archbishop of Aquileia in the mid-5th century.

In 452 he temporarily moved from Aquileia to the island of Grado, as the island was safer from attacks by groups moving west from the Eurasian Steppe into the former lands of the Roman Empire.

Saint Nicetas's feast day is observed on June 22.
