Γλοῦς), an Egyptian, was son of Tamos, the admiral of Cyrus the younger. When Menon, the Thessalian, had persuaded his troops to show their zeal for Cyrus, by crossing the Euphrates before the rest of the Greeks, Glus was sent by the prince to convey to them his thanks and promises of reward. After the battle of Cunaxa he was one of those who announced to the Greeks the death of Cyrus, and he is mentioned again by Xenophon as watching their movements, when, in the course of their retreat, they were crossing the bridge over the Tigris. (Xen. Anab. 1.4.16, 5.7, 2.1.3, 4.24.)
