Another fish is the trachurus, or rough-tail. Diodes mentions this as a dry fish. And Numenius, in his Art of Fishing, says—
The aconia and the wagtail too,There is also the taulopias. Concerning this fish, A chestratus says—
And the . . . trachurus.
When it is summer buy a good-sized head
Of fresh taulopias, just when Phaethon
Is driving his last course. Dress it with speed.
Serve it up hot, and some good seasoning with it,
Then take its entrails, spit and roast them too.
