I venture to say that the source of the attribution quoted below is
questionable, an example of unscholarly interpretation, especially as

This story is a fableised recollection of cannibalism amongst the
Aryans. Had it not been so it need not have been incorporated into a
legend that was supposed to be believed by lay people."
