Also spelled Aamon.
In demonology Amon is a Grand Marquis of Hell, a demon commanding forty infernal legions. He is the seventh of the 72 spirits of Goetia (see King Solomon).
According to some descriptions, Amon vomited flames and had the head of a serpent with the body of a wolf (and vice-versa). Other demonologists described him as a man with a raven's head. He could discern the past and foretell the future, and supposedly reconciled friends and foes. He was also said to procure love.
Reginald Scot records about this demon:
"Amon or Aamon, is a great and mightie marques, and commeth abroad in the likenes of a woolfe, having a serpents taile, spetting out and breathing flames of fier; when he putteth on the shape of a man, he sheweth out dogs teeth, and a great head like to a mightie raven; he is the strongest prince of all other, and understandeth of all things past and to come, he procureth favor, and reconcileth both freends and foes, and ruleth fourtie legions of divils."
This is what Johann Wier says about Amon in his 'De Praestigiis Daemonum':
"Amon, or Aamon, is a great and mightie marques, and commeth abroad in the likenes of a woolfe, having a serpents taile, [vomiting] flames of fier; when he putteth on the shape of a man, he sheweth out dogs teeth, and a great head like to a mightie [night hawk]; he is the strongest prince of all other, and understandeth of all things past and to come, he procureth favor, and reconcileth both freends and foes, and ruleth fourtie legions of divels."
In the The Goetia, the Lesser Key of Solomon the King, this is what is said about Amon:
"The 7th spirit is Amon. He is a Marquis great in power and most strong, he first appereth like a wolf with a serpents taile, vomiting ou of his mouth fleames of fire, but at ye command of ye magician he putteth on ye shape of a man, with dogs teeth beset in a head like a raven, or in a ravens head, hee telleth [of] all things past and to come, and procureth love, and reconcileth controversies between freinds and foes, and governeth 40 legions of spirits, his seal is thus, wch is to be worne as afforesaid."
Amon is one of Astaroth's assistants. He knows past and future, giving that knowledge to those who had made a pact with Satan. Amon's bios:
