Glaucus (river of Asia Minor)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- A tributary of the Phasis in Colchis, now called Tchorocsou. (Strab. xi. p. 498; Plin. vi. 4.) The Phasis is now called the Rioni, and Colchis is in the modern republic of Georgia.
- One of the two small rivers by the union of which the Apsorrhus or Acampsis (mod. Çoruh), in Pontus (Turkey), is formed. (Ptol. v. 6. § 7.)
- A tributary of the Maeander in Phrygia, not far from Eumeneia. (Plin. v. 29.) There are coins with the name of this river. (Leake, Asia Minor, p. 157.)
- A river in Lycia, on the frontier of Caria, which empties itself into the bay of Telmissus, whence that bay is sometimes called Sinus Glaucus. (Plin. vi. 29; Quint. Smyrn. Posthom. iv. 6, foil.; Strab. xiv. p. 651.) The modern name of the bay is Makri. Steph. B. mentions a δῆμος Γλαύκου, which was probably a place on the banks of the river.
