It is widely believed that Sarella Sand is in disguise in [[Oldtown]] as the novice [[Alleras]], studying for a [[maester]]'s chain.  The name Alleras is Sarella backwards, and Alleras ("the Sphinx") bears a resemblance to Oberyn Martell. Furthermore, disguising herself as a man to learn the secrets of the maesters would be in keeping with what is known of Sarella's character.<ref>[http://www.towerofthehand.com/blog/2010/08/24_if_its_chains_you_want_/index.html If It's Chains You Want, Come With Me], Tower of the Hand</ref>
