A tribe from India according to the accounts of Pliny the Elder and the earlier historian Onesicritus (4th century BC). They were eight foot tall and cast no shadow. They lived until they were 130 years of age and never actually aged. By 130 they were still looking like a middle-aged man. They lived on a diet of snake’s flesh. Their name as Macrobi translates as ‘Long Lived’.
