[12.6.56] Testudo dictus, eo quod tegmine testae sit adopertus in camerae modum. Sunt autem quattuor genera: terrestres, maritimae, lutariae, id est in caeno et paludibus viventes; quartum genus fluviales, quae in dulci aqua vivunt. Tradunt aliqui, quod incredibile est, tardius ire navigia testudinis pedem dextrum vehentia.
