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