P is for Panotti

The Panotii (from the Greek words πᾶν and οὖς for "all ears") were a mythical human race, described as possessing large ears that covered their entire bodies. In A.D. 77, Pliny the Elder described this race of beings that had very large ears, so huge that they were able to use it as blanket to shield their body against the chills of the night.
