Acalipse is a lemma from the Encyclopédie.

Nicander & Gellius font mention, l'un d'un poisson, l'autre d'un oiseau de ce nom. Le poisson de ce nom dont parle Athenée, a la chair tendre & facile à digérer. Voilà encore un de ces êtres dont il faut attendre la connoissance des progrès de l'histoire naturelle, & dont on n'a que le nom, comme si l'on n'avoit pas déjà que trop de noms vuides de sens dans les Sciences & les Arts, &c.[1]
Here is another one of these beings ... of which one has only the name; as if one did not already have too many names empty of sense in the sciences, arts, etc. Diderot, the Testing Years, 1713-1759
