MULLUS, the Red Mullet, is called that way because it is soft (mollis) and very tender. They also say that lust can be cooled by eating it, and they also dull the eyesight. People who frequently consume mullet smell of fish. If a Mullus is drowned in wine, those who drink the stuff afterwards get a loathing for wine-drinking.
