Odoriʹco (in Orlando Furioʹso)

.

A Biscayan, to whom Zerbiʹno commits Isabella. He proves a traitor and tries to ravish her, but, being interrupted by a pirate crew, flies for safety to Alphonzo’s court. Here Almoʹnio defies him, and overcomes him in single combat. King Alphonzo gives the traitor to the conqueror, and he is delivered bound to Zerbino, who awards him as a punishment to attend Gabriʹna for one year as her champion, and to defend her against every foe. He accepts the charge, but hangs Gabrina to an elm. Almonio in turn hangs Odorico to an elm.
