    How Lancelot fought at a fountain

    Sit Lancelot was fighting one day at a fountain with a knight of Sansonia1 whose name was Aliban; and they fought keenly, with their swords, dismounted from their horses.

    And when they paused to draw breath, they asked one another's names.

    Sir Lancelot replied: since you desire to hear my name, know that I am called Lancelot.

    Then the combat began once more, and the knight spoke to Lancelot, and said: your name is deadlier to me than your prowess.

    For when he knew that the knight was Lancelot he began to mistrust his own worth.
