Marax

Morax seal

In demonology, Morax is a Demon, Great Earl, and President of Jinnestan, having thirty (thirty-two, according to other authors) legions of demons under his command. He teaches Astronomy and all other liberal sciences, and gives good and wise familiars that know the virtues of all herbs and precious stones. This profile of the demon can be seen in Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (Johann Weyer, 1577) as well as in Goetia (S.L. MacGregor Mathers, 1904).

He is depicted as a man with the head of a bull.

It has been proposed that Morax is related to the Minotaur which Dante places in Hell (Inferno, Canto xii). See Fred Gettings, Dictionary of Demons (1988)

His name seems to come from Latin 'morax', that delays, that stops.

Other spellings: Foraii, Marax, Farax.
