Cam’balo’s Ring.
Given him by his sister Can’ace. It had the virtue of healing wounds. (See CAMBEL.) (Spenser: Faërie Queene, bk. iv.)   1
“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: Faëre Queene, iv. 3.
