Abdul Alhazred's last breath

As the legend goes, a wise arab from the Omeya period called Abdul Alhazred was inspired by divine beings prior to human kind to write a mysterious magic book, extremely mighty and prohibited, entitled Al-Azif, best known by its translation to Greek: Necronomicon. This arcane magic book contained powerful spells capable of invoke eerie beings and creatures, although very few people have been able to execute them without falling into the vortex of madness. The life of this enigmatic character, called sometimes "Mad Arab", is little-known, as well as his death, which is somewhat uncertain, nevertheless, a story says that he was devoured by a gigantic invisible creature, in front of a crowd of apalled witnesses.
