There is also the cordylus. Aristotle calls this fish an amphibious animal, and says that it dies if it is dried by the sun. But Numenius, in his book on the Art of Fishing, calls it the courylus:—
All things are ready. First I strip the thighs
Of courylus, or pirene, and treat too
In the same way the marine grasshopper.
He also speaks of the fish called the cordylis, in these lines—
Mussels, sea-horses, or the sea-green cordylis.
