An Indian tribe that were recounted in Pliny the Elder’s Historia Naturalis (77 AD). These people were covered with hair who had no mouths. They lived on a diet of the aromatic smells of plants. They live in the East of India near the source of the river Ganges. They dress in cotton wool clothes and they carry around apples and vegetation to smell through their nostrils. They can be killed by giving them a strong odour.
