Which Shifters??

I know this may seem like a bit of a dumb question but I was using a road bike in a fitness assessment a couple of months back any I can't remember what shifters it had on it!

All I can remember about them is that they had thumbshifters to shift down the gears when you were riding on the hoods.
I've had a look around but I haven't seen any with a similar set-up.

Any suggestions as to what they may have been?

    Probably Shimano Sora (9spd) or 2300 (?) (8spd)

    Tiagra shifters move both up and down the cogs on the drops. If Shimano it must have been Sora or below.

    or Sora/2300s

    Cheers guys.
    Looking at the pictures I reckon it could've been the Campag Ergos. Looks like they're well out of my price range for new bikes!

    although sora is a budget option mine have been good and reliable, work well. shimano thumb shifters are cheaper than the paddle shifters. i prefer the thumb button from the hoods, but a bit fiddly when holding the bends.
