GANUS (Γάνος or Γᾶνος), apparently a mountain fortress in Thrace, on the coast of the Propontis. (Xenoph. Anab. 7.5.8; Harpocrat. and Suid. s.v. Plin. Nat. 4.18; Scylax, p. 28.) Aeschines (adv. Ctesiph. p. 65) speaks of Ganus along with other places as scarcely known to the Athenians, and mentions Ganis along with Ganus, from which we may infer that the former was the name of the district in which the latter was situated.
