The death of Glauce and the murder of her children by Medea was frequently represented in ancient art.
End of the temple is the fountain Glauce cut out of a cube of rock, apparently left standing when the material for the temple was quarried around it.
It was named after the second wife of Jason, Glauce, who plunged into it to quench the fire of, the poisoned bridal garments given her by Medea.
To the west, beyond the theatre, one might find the temple of Athena Chalinitis and the fountain Lerna, and somewhere near Glauce, the Odeum and the tomb of Medea's children; but it is more likely that they have disappeared.
At last he put away Medea, in order to marry Glauce (or Creusa), daughter of the Corinthian king Creon.
