A mythical people of mouthless people who feed on the smell of fried fish and floral aroma from medieval bestiaries.

In different versions they may have different names (for example, in Slavic bestiaries it is known as Astonii or Astromove).

The ambassador of the Syrian king Nikator Megasphenes, who was at the court of the Indian king Chandragupta Maurya, told that at the sources of the Ganges there lived human beings devoid of a mouth; they fed on steam from cooking meat, as well as the aroma of fruits and flowers, and had a respiratory organ instead of a mouth. They could not stand bad smells and therefore survived with difficulty, especially when they found themselves in a military camp.
