There is the chromis; this also is spoken of by Epicharmus, who says—
There is the sword-fish and the chromias,
Who, in the spring, as Ananius says,
Is of all fish the daintiest.
And Numenius, in his Art of Fishing, says—
The hyces, or the beautiful callicthys,
Or else the chromis, and sometimes the orphus.
And Archestratus says—
You may catch noble chromises in Pella,
And they are fat when it is midsummer;
And in Ambracia likewise they abound.
