Wooden Horse (The)

.

Babiēca.

Peter of Provence had a wooden horse named Babiēca. (See Clavilenʹo.)

“This very day may be seen in the king’s ar moury the identical peg with which Peter of Provence turned his Wooden Horse, which carried him through the air. It is rather bigger than the pole of a coach, and stands near Babieca’s saddle.”—Don Quixote, pt. i. bk. iv. 19.
