We have also the needle-fish. This also is mentioned by Epicharmus, who says—
The oxyrhynchi, and the needle-fish,
And the hippuri.
But Dorion, in his work on Fish, says—“The belone, which they also call the needle-fish.” Aristotle too, in the fifth book of his Parts of Animals, calls this fish the belone. But, in his book on Animals and their Properties, or else in his work on Fishes, he calls it the needle-fish; and says that it has no teeth. And Speusippus calls it the belone.
