Gymnos’ophists.
 
A sect of Indian philosophers who went about with naked feet and almost without clothing. They lived in woods, subsisted on roots, and never married. They believed in the transmigration of souls. Strabo divides them into Brabmins and Samans. (Greek, gumnos, naked; sophists, sages.)   1
