A poisonous fish. It is said that Tele’gonos, son of Ulysses by Circ, coming to Ith’aca to see his father was denied admission by the servants; whereupon a quarrel ensued, and his father, coming out to see what was the matter, was accidentally struck with his son’s arrow, pointed with the bone of a trygon, and died.   1
“The lord of Ithaca
Struck by the poisonous trygon’s bone, expired.”
