253 Sepiae isti. Pliny, in his Nat. Hist. ix. 29, says "The males of the cuttles kind are spotted with sundry colours more dark and blackish, yes, and more firme and steady, than the female. If the female be smitted with the trout-speare, they will come to succour her; but she again is not so kind to them: for if the male be stricken, she will not stand to it, but runs away. But both of them, if they perceive that they be taken in such streights that they cannot escape, shed from them a certain black humor like to ink; and when the water therewith is troubled and made duskish, therein they hide themselves, and are no more seen" (Holland's Translation, p. 250). Our epithet "saucy cuttle" comes from Shakespeare, 2 Henry IV. 2, 4, where, however, the word seems employed in a different sense.

260 For a discussion of the spoiling of the Egyptians by the Iraelites, the reader is referred to Calmet's Commentary, on Ex. iii. 22, where he adduces, besides this passage of Tertullian, the opinions of Irenaeus, adv. Haeres. iv. 49; Augustine, contra Faust. ii. 71; Theodoret, Quaest. in Exod. xxiii.; Clement of Alex. Stromat. i. 1; of Philo, De Vita Moysis, i.; Josephus, Antiqq. ii. 8, who says that "the Egyptians freely gave all to the Israelites:" of Melchior Canus, Loc. Theoll. i. 4. He also refers to the book of Wisdom, x. 17-20. These all substantially agree with our author. see also a full discussion in Selden, De Jure Nat. et Gentium, vii. 8, who quotes from the Gemara, Sanhedrin, c. ii. f. 91a; and Bereshith Rabba, par. 61 f., 68, col. 2, where such a tribunal as Tertullian refers to is mentioned as convened by Alexander the Great, who, after hearing the pleadings, gave his assent to the claims of the advocates of Israel.
