Eth. CREO´PHAGI (Eth. Κρεωφάγοι, Strab. xvi. p.771.), a Troglodytic race on the western shore of the Red Sea, and, as their name of “the flesh-eaters” imports, a pastoral people who lived upon the produce of their herds of cattle. Strabo (l.c.) seems to regard the Colobi and Creophagi as the same tribes.
