Camʹbalo’s Ring

.

Given him by his sister Canʹace. It had the virtue of healing wounds. (See Cambel.) (Spenser: Faërie Queene, bk. iv.)

“Well mote ye wonder how that noble knight,

After he had so often wounded been,

Could stand on foot now to renew the fight

All was through virtue of the ring he wore;

The which, not only did not from him let

One drop of blood to fall, but did restore

His weakened powers, and dulled spirits whet.”


Spenser: Faërīe Queene, iv. 3.
