But concerning carides, Ephorus mentions in his first book that there is a city called Carides near the island of Chios; and he says that it was founded by Macar and those of his companions who were saved out of the deluge which happened in the time of Deucalion; and that to this very day the place is called Carides. But Archestratus, the inventor of made dishes, gives these recommendations—
But if you ever come to Iasus,
A city of the Carians, you shall have
A cars of huge size, but rare to buy.
Many there are where Macedon is wash'd
By the deep sea, and in Ambracia's gulf.
But Araros in his Campylion has used the word καρῖδα with the penultima circumflexed and long—
The strangely bent carides did leap forth
Like dolphins into the rope-woven vessel.
And Eubulus says in his Orthane—
Iput a carid (καρῖδα) down and took it up again.
Anaxandrides says in his Lycurgus—
And he plays with little carids (καριδάριον),
And little partridges, and little lettuces;
And little sparrows, and with little cups,
And little scindaries, and little gudgeons.
And the same poet says in his Pandarus—
If you don't stoop, my friend, you'll upright be.
But she is like a carid (καριδόω) in her person;
Bent out, and like an anchor standing firm.
And in his Cerkios he says—
I'll make them redder than a roasted carid (καρῖδος).
And Eubulus says in his Grandmothers—
And carids (καρῖδες) of the humpback'd sort.
And Ophelion says in his Callæschrus—
There lay the crooked carids (καρῖδες) on dry ground.
And in his Ialemus we find—
And then they danced as crooked limbed carides (καρῖδες
Dance on the glowing embers.
But Eupolis, in his Goats, uses the word with the penultima short, (καρι̣̣̣δες), thus—
Once in Phæacia I ate carides (καρίδας).
[p. 176] And again in his People he says—
Having the face of a tough thick-skinn'd carid (καρίδος).
