1 1/2 foot tall (pygmê)
THE PYGMAIOI (Pygmies) were a tribe of diminutive African men who lived on the southernmost shores of the great earth-encircling river Okeanos (Oceanus) where they were engaged in an endless war with flocks migrating cranes.
The Pygmaioi were described as tiny, black-skinned men who grew to a height of one „pygme“–a „pygme“ being the length from a man’s elbow to his nuckle-bone (approximately 1 1/2 foot).
The Pygmies were located by ancient geographers in India (eastern „Aithiopia“) and Sub-Saharan Africa (western „Aithiopia“) at the southernmost reaches of the world.
