There is also a fish called the carcharias. Numenius of Heraclea, in his Art of Fishing, says— [p. 481]
At times you may too a carcharias catch,
At times a psamathis who loves the surf.
And Sophron, in his Tunny-hunter, says, “But if your stomach happens to have swallowed a carcharias.” But Nicander the Colophonian, in his essay on Dialects, says that the carcharias is also called the lamias and the squill.
