A Dutch priest, Philippus Baldaeus, who accompanied the Dutch fleets that fought the Portuguese in the Indic Ocean, tells a most interesting story.
During the first Siege of Diu in the 16th century, a Portuguese soldier who was manning one of the bastions of the fortress that was being attacked by the Turks, found himself as the only survivor, having used all bullets but still having some gun powder for one more shot. Finding nothing else to charge his firearm with, the Portuguese soldier decided to extract one of his own teeth and arm the weapon with it, firing against the enemy’s chest who thought he was out of ammunitions. The Turks, surprised by it, check the chest of their dead soldier and find a tooth inside of it. Suddenly, they start screaming of how the Portuguese man was a sorcerer, a devil, and gave up on the siege.
