Ah med (Prince)

.

Noted for the tent given him by the fairy Pari-banʹou, which would cover a whole army, but might be carried in one’s pocket; and for the apple of Samarcandʹ, which would cure all diseases. — Arabian Nights, Prince Ahmed, etc.

This tent coincides in a marvellous manner with the Norse ship called Skidbladnir (q.v.). (See Solomon’s Carpet.)
