“The Ninth Spirt in this Order is Paimon, a Great King, and very obedient unto Lucifer. He appeareth in the form of a Man sitting upon a Dromedary with a Crown most glorious upon his head. There goeth before him also an Host of Spirits, like Men with Trumpets and well sounding Cymbals, and all other sorts of Musical Instruments. He hath a great Voice, and roareth at his first coming, and his speech is such that the Magician cannot well understand it unless he can compel him. This Spirit can teach all Arts and Science, and other secret things. He can discover unto thee what the Earth is, and what holdeth it up in the Waters; and what Mind is, and where it is; or any other thing thou may est desire to know. He giveth Dignity, and confirmeth the same. He bindeth or maketh any man subject to the Magician if he so desire it. He giveth good Familiars, and such as can teach all Arts. He is to be observed towards the West. He is of the Order of Dominations. He hath under him 200 Legions of Spirits, and part of them are of the Order of Angels, and the other part of Potentates. Now if thou callest this Spirit Paimon alone, thou must make him some offering; and there will attend him two Kings called Labal and Abalim, and also other Spirits who be of the Order of Potentates in his Host, and 25 Legions. And those Spirits which be subject unto them are not always with them unless the Magician do compel them. His Character is this which must be worn as a Lamen before thee, etc.” – From The Lesser Key of Solomon, Crowley/Mathers edition
“The Spirit Paymon is of the power of the Air, the sixteenth in the ranck of Thrones, subordinate to Corban and Marbas.” – From Discoverie of Witchcraft, Joseph H. Peterson edition
“The third prince or king of the spirits is called Paymon and he himself has notable power, and willingly answers to all things that you ask of him. He will speak of the state of the world, and he may give familiarity, and he may make all fishes of the sea to be obedient. He appeareth like a king with a woman’s face crowned with a bright crown. He rideth upon a dromedary and after him comes a great company of spirits with all manner of instruments of melody, but if he be called alone, then he appeareth with two kings and speaks mystically, for he would not be understood. Nevertheless thou mayest command him to speak in thine own language. He hath infinite of spirits under him but twelve of the most mightiest be these.” – From the book of Oberon by Daniel Harms, James R Clark, Joseph H Peterson.
