There is also the synodon and the synagris. They also are mentioned by Epicharmus, when he says—
Synagrides, and mazi, and the synodons,
With red spots variegated.
And Numenius, in his treatise on Fishing, writes the word with an υ, συνόδους; and says—
Then the white synodon, and boax, and triccus.
And in another place he says—
Fish with these baits then, if you wish to eat
The mighty synodon, or diving horsetail.
But Dorion writes the word σινόδους, with an ι; and so does Archestratus, in the following lines:—
But try to catch a well-fed sinodon,
And you will find the best in narrow straits.
All this advice to Cyrus I have given,
And now to you, Cleænus, I impart it.
And Antiphanes says, in his Archistrata,—
But who would eat an eel, or sinodon's head.
