In support of Abdulla Al-Dabbagh's reading: in medieval Spain, the
Arabian tribes were referred to as "los alarbes".

Frank Whigham asked on Tuesday, 03 Oct:

>Can anyone identify the Alarbes, a people referred to in the following
>passage from Puttenham's *Art of English Poesy* (1589)?

I presume that Alarbe = Al Arabe, "al" being the definite article in
Arabic as in algebra, alchemy and Aldebaran.

Roman outposts where set up as far as the Arabian peninsula, to control
the spice trade, inter alia.

Best wishes,
