Troglodytes (CAVE-DWELLERS) were an ancient race who, like prehistoric man, dwelt in caves, and seem to have attained but a low degree of civilisation. They were found in South Egypt and Ethiopia, in the Caucasus and along the lower course of the Danube, and in Asia. From ancient writers we learn that they lived by herding, hunting, and robbing, that their language was inarticulate, that they practised community of wives, and that their habits were repulsive.
