king of the Turks (in Jerusalem Delivered), whose
capital was Nice. Being driven from his kingdom, he fled to Egypt, and
was there appointed leader of the Arabs (bk. ix.). He and Argantes were
by far the most doughty of the pagan knights. Solyman was slain by
Rinaldo (bk. xx.), and Argantes by Tancred.
