Careias is the name, found in ancient Roman documents, of a waystation on the ancient Via Claudia near the present Galeria, and very likely the word "Galeria" comes from "Careias", probably a name of Etruscan origin.
Ninfa is the name of another ancient city similar to Galeria, abandoned and covered with green, south of Rome, near Norma.
