The Nahr al-Kalb (Arabic: نهر الكلب‎‎) (English literal translation is Dog River) is a river in Lebanon. It runs for 19 miles (31 km) from a spring in Jeita near the Jeita Grotto to the Mediterranean Sea.


Nahr al-Kalb is the ancient Lycus River.[1] Past generals and conquerors have traditionally built monuments at the mouth of the Nahr al-Kalb, known as the Commemorative stelae of Nahr el-Kalb.
