Y’all know what time it is. The way I translate these is in part from google translate but also in part by recognizing repeated subject matter, similarity to other sources on demonology, and recognizing some Latin roots. I don’t have a background in this, and the source material is pretty scratchy, so… I’m going to post my translations, insofar as I have them, and you make fun of me in the comments, right?
Lanima – AKA Pneuna – is a great count, appearing in angelic seeming (smonibus blamois?) ceases, and knows strengths of herbs, and has under him 20 legions. It’s hard to pin down a demon in another source I could compare against to find meanings for those words.
Judifligei is a great duke, appearing in the likeness of ravens, and then appears in human form, preceded by teachers (preptore fui inbente?), makes heard unseen trumpets and symphonies, and transfers (et ora gna?) instruments, teaches to play, is best familars, has 19 legions in his dominion. Again, I can’t find an equivalent to him in other demonology to help here. On those ravens, I have a frustration I’ll get to in just a bit…
Gomens or Caym, a strong powerful duke, appears in the likeness of a beautiful woman, crowned with a duchal crown, riding on a camel. Gives full true responses on past present and future, on the occult (ravernis?), in which appear (spentes?) is princes, and (rustos?). Gives best love of women, and has under him 2j legions.
This is the one known as Gremory, Gomori, or a half dozen variants thereof in many other grimoires! A lovely gender weirdo on a camel. On that “spentes,” I feel like I’ve seen “serpentes” – snakes – abbreviated that way somewhere else in here, but not positive. Rustos sounds like it would mean farmers, but doesn’t come up in translate. Don’t know.
Furfur, a great count, appears in the likeness of ravens, his tail in flames, lies unless trapped in a triangle. Then can be ordered into angelic form, with a raucous voice… Here’s my problem with those ravens. Furfur is in lots of other demonologies, always described as a deer or hart. I can see how one missed transcription could lead to a chain of error, with “corvii” looking like “cervus.” Or maybe the Geomanticarum has it wrong, or I do. But if Furfur is ravens, so is Judifligei. And if he’s a deer, likewise.
This is mostly gibberish to me, but it’s clearly about Berith – here called Berich. Most demonologies open his description saying he is known by at least three names – known to the jews (lovely) as Berith, to some nigromancers or necromancers as Bolfry, and to unnamed third party as (insert random garble here). I imagine the “vocatur Salmonazi vocant” is about him being referred to in the “notary art of Solomon” as Berich. Are Gramatiri and Belfarit alternate names?
This guy is known in other demonologies as Aym or Cabeym. Here… Bachimy or Albermi or Cabeym is a great strong duke appearing with three heads. The first is like a (nason?), the second like a man (tyng?) two bodies (wtf?), third as a mouse hunter (cat), rides on a viper, carrying in hand a blazing (valcham?), makes man ingenius in all arts, and gives true responses, and has under him 26 legions. In other demonologies, the first head is a snake, the human head has two stars on it. But is a “nason” a snake? And that really looks like it’s saying one of his heads has two bodies, which is bonkers. The blazing thing elsewhere is a firebrand, but the word valcham doesn’t seem to mean shit in Latin, and reminds me of the sound of “falchion” – a kind of sword.
Simias or Gumas is a great marquis, appearing in the likeness of a lion, riding on a strong (ursum? bears?), the tail of a serpent, flames proceeding from his mouth. In his right hand carries… OK, this guy is really similar to Egyn in The Book of Oberon, The Book of Spirits, and… Also this book. In those descriptions, Egyn rides bears or a dragon, so…? I don’t know. However, he’s maybe even more similar to Orias, from the Pseudomomarchia Demonum, Lesser Key of Solomon, and other sources – and that guy rides a horse. I may be overthinking this one.
Ras, a great governor, appears in the likeness of a (cervi?) with then a subsequent human form, speaking gravely. Belvow (?) makes subside, and limp. Gives true responses, gives grace of friends, has under him LX9 legions… Whatever, buddy.
I hope this one, being Latin, draws as much attention as the previous posts – and doesn’t get whiffed on like the Italian Demonds. Thank you for what help you’ve already given me. It is imperative that I summon these demons, pronto. I swear.
