Of course there is; it's *k^leu- 'hear, listen', one of the best-known IE roots. The Greek word <kle(w)os> 'glory' (an *-es-stem neuter) derives from the very same form as Slavic *slovo 'word' and Sanskrit s'ravas-. Cognates include English <loud> and <listen> (OE hlu:d, hlystnian) and lots of other words throughout the family.

Is there IE etymology for Greek *-kleo "glory"?
Or it is a Mediterranean substrate word which could be compared with Latin
"gloria" ?
