Balam

Balam seal

In demonology, Balam (also Balaam, Balan) is a great and powerful king (to some authors a duke or a prince) of Jinnestan who commands over forty legions of demons. He gives perfect answers on things past, present, and to come, and can also make men invisible and witty.

Balam is depicted as being three-headed. One head is the head of a bull, the second of a man, and the third of a ram. He has flaming eyes and the tail of a serpent. He carries a hawk on his fist and rides a strong bear. At other times he is represented as a naked man riding a bear.

EtymologyEdit
