And when he had thus bound them up and sealed the Vessel, he by Divine Power did chase them all into a deep Lake or Hole in Babylon.
And they of Babylon, wondering to see such a thing, they did then go wholly into the Lake, to break the Vessel open, expecting to find great store of Treasure therein. But when they had broken it open, out flew the Chief Spirits immediately, with their Le- gions following them ; and they were all restored to their former places except Belial, who entered into a certain Image, and thence gave answers unto those who did offer Sacrifices unto him, and did worship the Image as their God, etc.
First, thou shalt know and observe the Moon's Age for thy working. The best days be when the Moon Luna is 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, or 14 days old, as Solomon saith; and no other days be profitable. The Seals of the 72 Kings are to be made in Metals. By the Rabbins they are frequently entitled: And the Chief Bangs may be bound from 9 till 12 o'clock at Noon, and from 3 till Sunset ; Marquises may be bound from 3 in the afternoon till 9 at Night, and from 9 at Night till Sunrise; Dukes may be bound from Sunrise till Noonday in Clear Weather ; Prelates may be bound any hour of the Day; Bjiights may from Dawning of Day till Sun- rise, or from 4 o'clock till Sunset; Presidents may be bound any time, excepting Twilight, at Night, unless the King whom they are under be Invocated ; and Counties or Earls any hour of the Day, so it be in Woods, or in any other places whither men resort not, or where no xioise is, etc.

The codex in question, though beautifully written, also contains many other errors, par- ticularly in the Sigils. Budd are here shown. This is the Form of the Magical Circle of King Solomon, the which he made that he might preserve himself therein from the malice of these Evil Spirits.
All names and letters are in black. In the Hexagrams the outer triangles where the letters a, d, o, n, a, i, appear are filled in with bright yellow, the centres, where the T-shaped crosses are, blue or green. It is to be made at 2 feet distance from the Magical Circle and it is 3 feet across. Note 1 The coiled serpent is only shown in one private codex, the Hebrew names being in most cases simply written round in a somewhat spiral arrangement within the double circle.
It is to be remembered that Hebrew is always written from right to left, 50 GOETIA that this triangle is to be placed toward that quarter whereunto the Spirit belongeth.
And the base of the triangle is to be nearest unto the Circle, the apex point- ing in the direction of the quarter of the Spirit. Observe thou also the Moon in thy working, as aforesaid, etc. Anaphaxeton is sometimes written Anepheneton. This is the Form of the Hexagram of Solomon, the figure whereof is to be made on parchment of a calf's skin, and worn at the skirt of thy white vestment, and covered with a cloth of fine linen white and pure, the which is to be shown unto the Spirits when they do appear, so that they be compelled to take human shape upon them and be obedient.
The small Maltese crosses are placed to mark the conclusion of each separate set of Hebrew names.
In English letters they run thus, beginning from the head of the serpent: F for "Sphere of the Fixed Stars," or S. The lower exterior triangle, where the Sigil is drawn in black, is left white. This is the Form of Pentagram of Solomon, the figure whereof is to be made in Sol or Luna Gold or Silver , and worn upon thy breast ; having the Seal of the Spirit required upon the other side thereof.
It is to preserve thee from danger, and also to command the Spirits by. Names and Sigils within Pentagram black also. This is the Form of the Magic Ring, or rather Disc, of Solomon, the figure whereof is to be made in gold or sil- ver. It is to be held before the face of the exorcist to preserve him from the stinking sulphurous fumes and flaming breath of the Evil Spirits.
Letters, black. The seal in Figure was made in brass to cover this vessel with at the top. This jinni tells the fisherman that his name is Sakhr, or Sacar.
This is the Form of the Secret Seal of Solomon, where- with he did bind and seal up the aforesaid Spirits with their legions in the Vessel of Brass.
This seal is to be made by one that is clean both in- wardly and outwardly, and that hath not defiled himself by any woman in the space of a month, but hath in prayer and fasting desired of God to forgive him aU his sins, etc. It is to be made on the day of Mars or Saturn Tues- day or Saturday at night at 12 o'clock, and written upon virgin parchment with the blood of a black cock that never trode hen.
Note that on this night the moon must be increasing in light i. And when the seal is so made thou shalt perfume it with alum, raisins dried in the sun, dates, cedar and lignum aloes. Also, by this seal King Solomon did command all the aforesaid Spirits in the Vessel of Brass, and did seal it up with this same seal.
He by it gained the love of all manner of persons, and overcame in battle, for neither weapons, nor fire, nor water could hurt him. Figures to inclusive are interesting as showing a marked resemblance to the central design of the Secret Seal.
It will be observed that the evident desire is to represent hieroglyphicaUy a person raising his or her hands in adoration. Nearly all are stone sepulchral steles, and the execution of them is rough and primitive in the extreme. Most are in the Musee du Louvre at Paris.
Figures and are from the district of Constan- tine and show a figure raising its arms in adoration. In Figure , also from Constantine, the person bears a palm branch in the right hand. Above is a hierogly- phic representing either the Lunar Disc or the Sun in the heavens ; but more probably the former.
Figure is a more complicated stele. Above is the symbol already mentioned, then comes the sign of the Pentagram, represented by a five-pointed star, towards which the person raises his or her hands.
Besides the latter is a rude form of caduceus.
A brief inscription follows in the Punic character. The Punic or Car- thaginian language is usually considered to have been a dialect of Phoenician, and Carthage was of course a col- ony of Tyre.
Beneath the Tunic inscription is a horse 's head in better drawing than the sculpture of the rest of the stele, which would seem to imply that the rudeness of the representation of the human figure is intentional. This and the following stele are also from Constantine.
In Figure again, the horse is best delineated by far. In addition to the other symbols there is either a hand or a foot, for it is almost impossible to distinguish which, at the head of the stele, followed by an egg-and- tongue moulding.
The figure of the person with the 54 GOETIA arms raised is treated as a pure hieroglyphic and is placed between two rude caducei. The Lunar or Solar Symbol follows. Figure , also from Constantine, shows the last-men- tioned symbol above. The figure with the arms raised is simply a hieroglyph, and is placed between an arm and hand on the one side, and a rude caduceus on the other. Figure shows the person holding a rude caduceus in the right hand, and standing above a dolphin.
This latter, as in the case of the horse in and , is by far the best delineated. Figure , this also being from Constantine, shows the usual human hieroglyph between a caduceus and a crescent. Figure is from the site of ancient Carthage. It is very rough in workmanship, and the designs are mere scratchings on the stone. The ensemble has the eflPect of an evil Sigil. Figure is also from Carthage and the various sym- bols appear to have become compressed into and syn- thesised in the form of a peculiarly evil-looking caduceus.
Figure is from the decoration of a sepulchral urn found at Oldenburgh in Germany. It is remarkable as showing the same hieroglyphic human form with the crescent above ; the latter in the Secret Seal of Solomon has a flattened top, and is therefore more like a bowl, and is placed across the hieroglyph.
Figure is an Egyptian design which would show an analogy between the symbol and the idea of the force of the creation. Figure is a stele from Phoenicia somewhat similar to the others, except that the rudimentary caducei in Figures and are here replaced by two roughly drawn Ionic columns. This Spirit is said to be under the rule of Bael, and to be of a mixed nature, partly good and partly evil, like the spirits of Theurgia-Gtoetia which follow in the second book of the Lemegeton.
The other magical requisites are: Most of the material, however, is found in varying forms in earlier manuscripts, and some of the material dates back as early as the 14th century or earlier. This list was repeated by Agrippa's student, Johann Weyer a.
Wier, or Wierus , in Reginald Scot, who relied to some extent on Weyer, does Iikewise. S According to Agrippa, Goetia is the other major category of ceremonial magic. The name Lemegeton was probably naively invented because of the compiler's ignorance of Latin.
The major texts used for this edition have all been from the British Library Manuscript collection. Thay are not ignorant empirics1 but learned and experienced physicians whose remedies are not only lawful but divine.
The second part is a Booke of [aerial] spirits, partly good and partly evill, wch is called Theurgia Goetia being all spirits of the ayre. The Third part is [a book] of spirits governing ye Planetary houres, and wt spirits belong to every degree of the signes and planets in ye signes, and is called Ars Paulina.
The fifth part is a Booke of orations and prayers that wise Salomon used upon the alter in the Temple which is called Artem Novam [sic. Ars Nova ] The wch was revealed to Salomon by the holy angel of God called Michael, and he also recieved [sic] many breef Notes written by the fingar of God wch was delivered to him by ye said Angell, with Thunder claps, without wc Notes Salomon hadd never obtained to his great knowledge, for by them in short time he knew all arts and siences both good and badd which from these Notes [this book] is [also] called Ars Notoria.
