Canace, too, delights in wandering in the forest in the early morning.
Like Chaucer's Canace, of sleep "She was full mesurable, as women be."
Canace, daughter of olus, beloved by Macareus; see Ovid, Her.
He is Canace's lover, who is to fight in the lists against her brothers Cambalo and Algarsif, and win her.
This was a bold offer on Cambello's part, but Canace employed her skill on his behalf.
Now these three brothers were the champions chosen by Canace's wooers to challenge Cambello.
Canace and canache are both short in Ovid; all which may have helped to the inference for Candăce.
