Glauce is a name given to various people in Greek mythology.
One of them was the daughter of Creon (king of Corinth) and wife of Jason. She and her father were murdered by Medea, who either sent a veil covered in flammable poison, or set the palace ablaze. In an effort to wash off the poison, Glauce threw herself into a well, which took her name.
Glauce Is also called Glauca, Glauke, Creusa.
