From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

Procopius (de Bell. Persico, l. i. c. 28), Evagrius (l. vi. c. 21), and Pocock (Specimen, p. 72, 86), attest the human sacrifices of the Arabs in the 6th century. The danger and escape of Abdallah is a tradition rather than a fact (Gagnier, Vie de Mahomet, tom. i. p. 82 - 84.).
