A tribe in Libya, which has wide feet; [the people] who in the heat make shade for themselves with their feet.[1]
By the western ocean, near the burning region, [are the] Shadow-feet; they say that these have soles larger than their whole body; because they do not have houses, but are withered by the heat, walking on four feet they hold up one of their feet and shade the rest of their body. For their nature granted them this, since their land is level and rough and has no hollows for refuge from the heat.[2]
