Unit Definition (alen [Scandinavia])
The Alen is a traditional Scandinavian unit of distance, which is very similar to the North German Elle: which is roughly equal to 2 feet or 60 centimeters.

Unit Definition (cana (canna, canne))
The caña (canna, canne) are traditional units of distance in Spain, Italy, and southern France, respectively. The caña varied in size, but it was most often defined as 8 palmos, which makes it the Mediterranean version of the fathom, equal to roughly 2 meters or 6.5 feet. In Italy a measuring stick is still called a canna metrica. The unit is sometimes translated to "rod" in English, but "fathom" is the proper choice.
