Ah med (Prin&cgrave;e).
 
Noted for the tent given him by the fairy Pari-ban’ou, which would cover a whole army, but might be carried in one’s pocket; and for the apple of Samarcand’, which would cure all diseases. — Arabian Nights, Prince Ahmed, etc.   1
   This tent coincides in a marvellous manner with the Norse ship called Skidbladnir (q.v.). (See SOLOMON’S CARPET.)   2
