There is also the sciæna. Epicharmus, in his Hebe's Wedding, says—
Aeoliæ were there, and plotes too,
And cynoglossi and sciathides.
But Numenius calls this fish the Sciadeus, saying—
Use then this bait, and you perhaps may catch,
If such your wish, a mighty synodon,
Or the quick leaping hippurus, or the phagrus
Proud with his high-raised crest, or in a shoal
Of trusty comrades, the fresh sciadeus.
There is also the syagris; and this fish is mentioned by Epicharmus, in his Hebe's Wedding, and also in his Earth and Sea.
