Barbatos

In demonology Barbatos was a demon of little importance, one of Astaroth's assistants.

But according to most sources he is Earl and Duke of Hell. Barbatos rules thirty legions of demons and has four kings as his companions to command his legions. He gives the understanding of the voices of the animals, says past and future, conciliates friends and rulers, and he can lead men to hidden treasures that have been hid by the enchantment of magicians.

His name seems to derive from Latin 'barbatus', bearded, old man, philosopher.
