Cinnamulgus

Fontes:

97 in Arabia cinnamolgus avis appellatur cinnami surculis nidificans; plumbatis eos sagittis decutiunt indigenae mercis gratia.

[12.7.23] Cinnamolgus et ipsa Arabiae avis, proinde ita vocata quod in excelsis nemoribus texit nidos ex fruticibus cinnami: et quoniam non possunt ibi homines conscendere propter ramorum altitudinem et fragilitatem, eosdem nidos plumbatis appetunt iaculis, ac sic cinnama illa deponunt, et pretiis amplioribus vendunt; [eo] quod cinnamum magis quam alia mercatores probent.
