Pinabel’lo or Pin’abel (in Orlando Furioso).
Son of Anselmo, King of Maganza. Marphi’sa, having overthrown him, and taken the steed of his dame, Pinabello, at her instigation, decreed that nothing would wipe out the disgrace except a thousand dames and a thousand warriors unhorsed, and spoiled of their arms, steed, and vest. He was slain by Brad’amant.   1
