(1.), a name given by Irenaeus, Epiphanius, and Theodoret to a sect of Ophites, whom modern writers call more correctly Cainites (q.v.).
(2.) A sect mentioned by Tertullian, which rejected the doctrine of baptism. It is doubtful whether this sect is identical with the preceding. Tertullian mentions a certain Quintilla, as the founder, and some have concluded from this that the sect is identical with the Quintillians (q.v.).
