Coracin (κορακῖνος, a Latinized form for κορακινός, from κόρἀξ, a raven), a kind of fish (so called probably from its black color), found, according to Josephus (War, 3. 10, 8), in the spring of Capernaum (q.v.) and in the Nile (Theophylact, Hist. 7:17; Oribasins, Medic. Collect. 2:58); accustomed to leap like the salmon (Pliny, 32:5, 10), and called likewise the saperda (Athenseus, 7:16) and other names (Stevens, Thes. Gr. s.v.; Reland, Palest. p. 274).
