3. Plutarch: De superstitione

Again, would it not have been better for the Carthaginians to have taken Critias or Diagoras to draw up their law-code at the very beginning, and so not to believe in any divine power or god, rather than to offer such sacrifices as they used to offer to Cronos? These were not in the manner that Empedocles describes in his attack on those who sacrifice living creatures:

μορφὴν δ’ ἀλλάξαντα πατὴρ φίλον υἱὸν ἀείρας
σφάζει ἐπευχόμενος μέγα νήπιος

Changed in form is the son beloved of his father so pious,
Who on the altar lays him and slays him. What folly!

No, but with full knowledge and understanding they themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds [ἀλλ’ εἰδότες καὶ γιγνώσκοντες αὐτοὶ τὰ αὐτῶν τέκνα καθιέρευον, οἱ δ’ ἄτεκνοι παρὰ τῶν πενήτων ὠνούμενοι παιδία κατέσφαζον καθάπερ ἄρνας ἢ νεοσσούς]; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of the wailing should not reach the ears of the people.

[13 (Moralia 171 C-D)]

4. Plutarch: Regum et imperatorum apophtegmata

Gelon, the despot, after vanquishing the Carthaginians off Himera, forced them, when he made peace with them, to include in the treaty an agreement to stop sacrificing their children to Cronus [ὅτι καὶ τὰ τέκνα παύσονται τῷ Κρόνῳ καταθύοντες].

[Moralia 175 A]

5. Plutarch: De sera numinis vindicta

Über Gelon nach seinem Sieg bei Himera über die Karthager:

[...] and after defeating the Carthaginians in a great battle refused their suit for peace until he had added to the treaty the provision that they should no longer sacrifice their children to Cronus [ὅτι παύσονται τὰ τέκνα τῷ Κρόνῳ καταθύοντες]

[Moralia 552 A]
