Note 115
From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

See the Koran, (passim, and especially c. 7, p. 123, 124, etc.,) and the tradition of the Arabs, (Pocock, Specimen, p. 35 - 37.) The caverns of the tribe of Thamud, fit for men of the ordinary stature, were shown in the midway between Medina and Damascus. (Abulfed Arabiae Descript. p. 43, 44,) and may be probably ascribed to the Throglodytes of the primitive world, (Michaelis, ad Lowth de Poesi Hebraeor. p. 131 - 134. Recherches sur les Egyptiens, tom. ii. p. 48, etc.)
