Hi, I've been working through a Medieval/Early Modern Latin text and can't find a translation for this word: "olothryus". Around it he talks about jellyfish and sponges but other than that I'm having a hard time. Actually, if I could get a translation of the full sentence "His eadem quae frutiei inest natura, perinde ac spongiis, vrticis, stellis, & olothyris" that would be great. (Also I was thinking that "stellis" might refer to starfish?)

Here's a link to the page:

Could it mean seaweed? With "thyrsus" meaning the stalk or stem of a plant or leafy vine and "oleo" meaning musty or stinky? That might be a stretch, I don't know.

I can't find it in any Latin dictionary I have.
