Text Commentary

A demon like a horse in front and a fish behind, living in the sea and causing shipwrecks, who also transforms himself into a man, called Cynopegus, 1 The name appears to be a compound of ‘dog’ and ‘fountain’, and the demon probably has a connection with Poseidon. inhibited by Iameth. He is beginning to faint without water, so Solomon puts him in a jar with ten measures of sea water, smears the mouth with asphalt, pitch, and tow, seals it with the ring, and orders it to be stored in the temple.

Notes:

1 The name appears to be a compound of ‘dog’ and ‘fountain’, and the demon probably has a connection with Poseidon.
