There is also the channa. Epicharmus, in his Hebe's Wedding, says—
The channa, with large mouth, and then the cod,
With deep and spacious belly.
Numenius, in his Art of Fishing, says—
The channas and the eel, and pitinus,
Who only roams by night.
Dorion also mentions him in his treatise on Fishes. But Aristotle, in his book on Animals, calls the channa a fish [p. 517] variegated with red and black; and he calls it also ποικιλόγραμμος, because it is marked with black lines.
