Instead of exertion in thewrestling-school and the place for exercise, we havethis: sea-urchins, rock-mussels, oysters, limpets,cockles, sea-nettles, sea-mussels and spotted crabs,we catch. After that, we commence our fishing withthe hook and among the rocks, and thuswe take our food from out of the sea. Ifsuccess does not befall us, and not any fish is taken, soaked in salt water andthoroughly drenched, we quietly betakeourselves home, and without dinner goto sleep.” T. Maccius Plautus, Rudens 2.1
