River in Campania (Lycophr. 718; Γλάνις; Glánis, Dion. Hal. Ant. Rom. 7,3), that in antiquity probably flowed into the mare Tyrrhenum near Liternum. Its floods endangered Acerrae (Verg. G. 2,225 with Serv.). Two Neolithic settlements (4th/3rd millennia BC) only 4 km from the river near Gricigliano and Orta di Atella suggest a considerable population density in the Campanian plain since the 4th millennium.
