THE SECRET SEAL OF SOLOMON THIS is the form of the Secret Seal of Solomon. and that hath not defiled himself by any woman in the space of a month. etc.” In this tale. there was only one jinni shut up in a vessel of yellow brass the which was covered at the top with a leaden seal.

Figures 162 and 163 are from the district of Constantine and show a figure raising its arms in adoration. going from new to full) and in the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo. raisins dried in the sun. cedar. and did seal it up with the same seal. and written upon virgin parchment with the blood of a black cock that never trode hen. And when the seal is so made thou shalt perfume it with alum. Also by this seal King Solomon did command all the aforesaid Spirits into the Vessel of Brass. It is to be made on the day of Mars or Saturn (Tuesday or Saturday) at night at 12 o’clock. and overcame in battle. Figure 162. And this privy seal was made to cover the vessel at the top withal. Nearly all are stone sephulchral steles. nor fire. for neither weapons. etc.

A brief inscription follows in the Punic character.. as in the case of the horse in 165 and 166. for it is almost impossible to distinguish which. also from Constantine. and standing above a dolphin. Figure 166. represented by a five-pointed star. The figure with the arms raised is simply a hieroglyph. In Figure 166 again. Figure 168 shows the person holding a rude caduceus in the right hand. the horse is best delieated by far. The Lunar or Solar symbol follows. shows the usual human hieroglyph between a caduceus and a cresent. Figure 167. and Carthage was of course a colony of Tyre. The figure of the person with the arms raised is treated as a pure hieroglpyh and is placed between two rude caducei. towards which the person raises his or her hands. Above is the symbol already mentioned. than the sculpture of the rest of the stele. at the head of the stele. shows the last-mentioned symbol above. Figure 165 is a more complicated stele. Figure 167. this also being from Constantine. Figure 169. In addition to the other symbols is also a hand or foot. The Punic or Carthaginian language is usually considered to have been a dialect of Phœnician. Besides the latter is a rude form of caduceus. which would seem to imply that the rudeness of the representation of the human figure is intentional. Figure 168. then comes the sign of the Pentagram. is by far the best delineated. followed by an egg-and-tounge moulding. This latter. and is placed between and arm and a hand on the one side. 42 . and a rude caduceus on the other. This and the following stele are also from Constantine. Figure 169. Beneath the Punic inscription is a horse’s head in better drawing Figure 165.

This Spirit is said to be under the rule of BAEL. and is placed across the hieroglyph. NOTE. Figure 171 is also from Carthage and the various symbols appear to have been compressed into and synthesised in the form of a peculiarly evil-looking caduceus.—I am not responsible for the accuracy of the above note. the latter in the Secret Seal of Solomon has a flattened top. except that the rudimentary caducei in Figures 166 and 170 are here replaced by two roughly drawn Ionic columns. Figure 172 is from the decoration of a sepulchral urn found at Oldenburgh in Germany. Figure 173 is an Egyptian design which would show an analogy between the symbol and the idea of the force of creation. partly good and partly evil. Figure 170 is from the site of ancient Carthage.” In figure 175 is given the seal of the Spirit HALAHEL. on the “Lange Sacrée. and is therefore more like a bowl. like the spirits of Theurgia- Goetia which follow in the second book of the Lemegeton.—ED. 43 . The ensemble has the effect of an evil Sigil. Figure 173. Figure 174 is a stele from Phœnicia somewhat similar to the others. Figure 175. These last three designs are taken from the work of the Chevalier Emile Soldi-Colbert de Beaulieu. and to be of a mixed nature. and the designs are mere scratchings on the stone. It is remarkable as showing the same hieroglyphic human form with the crescent above. It is very rough in workmanship. Figure 171. Figure 170. Figure 174. Figure 172.

achieving what the British educational system generally fails in, transforms water into wine, and
blood into oil, and the reverse; “T.R.” gave ‘wine’ for ‘oil.’

possibly also failing to understand a Latin idiom: Pseudomonarchia has ut … abores ad
exorcistæ genu se inclinent, lit. “that trees bend the knee to the Exorcist” probably meaning “that
the trees shall be subject to the exorcist.”
68: BELIAL. The Pseudomonarchia assigns 80 legions to Belial. The entry for Belial in the
Pseudomonarchia includes an account of the myth of Solomon’s sealing up the spirits in the
brazen vessel. While only listing 69 spirits, the Pseudomonarchia version of the myth states that
72 kings along with their legions were sealed up in the brass vessel; it also gives various other
details not included in the Goëtia. The writer presents himself not as Solomon himself, but as
one who learnt the Art from Solomon; he angrily rebuts the claim that Solomon, seduced by the
cunning of a certain woman, once inclined himself to pray before the idol of Belial, asserting
rather that Solomon accomplished all his works by divine virtue which never forsook him.
Crowley’s note from 1923 e.v. possibly alludes to various workings directed at this spirit, in
particular one on the 9th of March 1918 e.v. “to create Belial as 2nd dec. Aquarius, night-demon –
to bring ‘earned success.’ ”
70: SEERE, in common with DANTALION and ANDROMALIUS, does not appear in the Pseudo-
monarchia.
71: DANTALION appears to have been the first Goëtic spirit to get its own fansite on the World
Wide Web.
72: The seal of ANDROMALIUS appears on the cover of the paperback edition of Lon Milo
DuQuette’s autobiography, My Life with the Spirits, possibly as a “do not steal this book” device.

Observations.
The compiler of the Goëtia evidently left it to the ingenium of the Magician to determine which
of the four Great Kings each spirit was under; since the rulership or assignment to a quarter is
only given for a few, and there is no obvious pattern.

Classified List of the 72 Chief Spirits.
Planetary symbols were handwritten in by Crowley in his personal copy.
In the Hebrew versions of the names from the “Dr. Rudd” MSS. (probably Harleian 6483) I
have not reproduced Hebrew pointing.
In 777 (cols. CLV to CLXVI) Crowley gave a different set of Hebrew spellings for the 72
Spirts, assigning them to the Decans by day and night. I reproduce this information below,
adding the key numbers of the spirits for ease of reference, and the attributions to Tarot number
cards thereby implied. Planetary symbols indicate the rank of the spirit (in the print edition, that
for 50, Furcas, was given as $ rather than '). Crowley has largely dropped Latinised endings
such as –es, –us, –ius, –ion, etc. Some errors in the Hebrew (}rmyap for Paimon, 9; [xg for
Gaap, 33; lamnd for Dantalion, 71) have been fixed.

Yet another set of spellings and astrological attributions, due to the order Aurum Solis, may be
found in The Sword and the Serpent by Denning and Phillips, or the third edition of Godwin’s
Cabalistic Encyclopedia.

The Magical Circle.
The figure of the circle and triangle has been redrawn and coloured. The sequence of names
around the serpent runs, for each Sephirah from Kether to Yesod inclusive, the Divine Name, the
name of the Sephirah, the Archangel, the Choir of Angel, the Hebrew name of the “Heaven of
Assiah” corresponding, then the appropriate planetary symbol, or an abbreviation for the Latin
equivalent. Malkuth is perhaps represented by the square in the centre; in other figures of Circles
in magical literature, a central square has terra (earth) written thereon.

The Vessel of Brass.
The Hebrew on the band around the first form of the Brazen Vessel reads:
(front): layhnah : lakim : layrbg : hyha rca
Asher Eheyeh : Gabriel : Michael : Haniel
(back): layqdx : \ylmcj : atyrara or laypdx : layqdx : lamk : lapr : atyrara
Ararita : Chashmalim : Tzadqiel or Ararita : Raphael : Kamael : Tzadqiel : Tzaphqiel

The Secret Seal.
Mathers’ long note appears to have been omitted in the de Lawrence edition. Not that it was any
great loss.
The Adoration at the Bath.
This is a traditional versicle for purification: the source is the 51st Psalm, via the Ordinary of the
Mass. For “purge” read “sprinkle” or strictly speaking “asperge”; you are not taking a laxative. I
do not know what the original Hebrew means (NIV has “cleanse”), but “purge” is not a
reasonable translation into modern English of aspergo –ere.

The Adoration at the induing of the Vestments.
An adaptation of a prayer in the Key of Solomon. Another version occurs in the Heptameron; one
almost identically worded to the Goëtia in one of the magical texts interpolated into the 1665 third
edition of Scot’s Discoverie of Witchcraft.
The Conjuration to call forth any of the aforesaid Spirits.
Passages in this and the second conjuration closely parallel many elements of two of the
conjurations in the Heptameron (which in turn probably derived from earlier Solomonic texts; in
particular the series of divine names which Moses and others are said to have invoked to bring
down the plagues on Egypt and work other wonders, is analagous though not identical to a long
section in the “stronger and more potent conjuration” in the Clavicle). Re Mathers’ third note to
the second conjuration; the Heptameron has et per sedem Adonai. ICTROS is probably a
corruption of ISCHUROS (Grk., “mighty”); pseudo-Abano has et per O THEOS [God], ISCYROS
[Mighty], ATHANATOS [Deathless], PARACLETOS [Assistant (or Intercessor)] instead of the two
sets of three Greek names following “by the Seat of ADONAI.”
The Constraint.
“PREYAI or PRERAI” etc. is a classic example of the pernicious tendency of scribal glosses or
notes to be incorporated into the text of repeatedly copied documents (cf. I John V, 7-8): in the
hypothetical original of that conjuration, one of the names would have been written. The gloss
could mean that in one codex the word was ambiguous due to poor handwriting and so could
have been either, or that the scribe (possibly Mathers) had access to multiple codices some giving
one reading, some the other. In actual practice only one name should be used (it probably doesn’t
matter which since they are all horribly corrupted in any case). AYE, SARAYÉ is probably a
corruption of EHEYEH ASHER EHEYEH (hyha rca hyha).
The Address unto the Spirit on his coming.
Again, adapted from speeches in the Heptameron. Pseudo-Abano has conclusionem (probably
best translated “doom”) rather than ‘confusion’ (one MS. of the Goetia has ‘conclusion’).
“Bathal or Vathat” is probably another example of duplication from scribal gloss (pseduo-Abano
has Bathat, vel Vachat; some MSS. have just “Bathat”). Crowley’s note (handwritten into his
personal copy) hinges on a point of Latin grammar.
Explanation of Certain Names.
This occurs on the final leaf of Sloane 2731, which Ben Rowe identifies with the Ars Nova,
suggesting that rather than being an ‘explanation’ of anything, it is a prayer to be said either while
writing out the circle and triangle, or in consecrating the place of working. It will be noted that
besides several names being miscopied a number are omitted altogether, possibly because the
author of this piece was working from a variant or defective version of the figure of the Circle.
