Original text from the Ars Goetia:

“SALLOS. – The Nineteenth Spirit is Sallos (or Saleos). He is a Great and Mighty Duke, and appeareth in the form of a gallant Soldier riding on a Crocodile, with a Ducal Crown on his head, but peaceably. He causeth the Love of Women to Men, and of Men to Women; and governeth 30 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, etc. “

From Tikaboo

“Sallos (or Saleos) is a Great and Mighty Duke, and appeareth in the form of a gallant Soldier riding on a Crocodile, with a Ducal Crown on his head, but peaceably. He causeth the Love of Women to Men, and of Men to Women; and governeth 30 Legions of Spirits.”

From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford

“Sallos/Saleos is a Might Duke as well, who appears in the form of a soldier of medieval times riding on a crocodile, whom is crowned. Sallos is a spirit of lust and desire, whom one may project to bring on with another – and create a flowing inspiration to achieve the union with another. He governs 30 Legions of Spirits as well. “

FROM DEMONOLOGIA ( OCTOBER 2003 )

The Demon is also known as Saleos. About him is written in the Lemegeton : “he is a great and Mighty Duke; and appeareth in forme of a Gallant Soldier Riding on a Crocadile with Dukes Crowne on his head Peacibly; He causeth the Love of women to men; and men to women; and Governeth 30 Legions of Spirits;” (Sloane 2731).Mathers reproduced this text for his edition of the Goetia, but the description in Scot is oddly truncated. It reads only”Saleos is a great earle, he appeareth as a gallant soldier, riding on a crocodile, and weareth a dukes crowne, peaceable, etc.” (Scot, Discoverie of Witchcraft, page 225)

Collin de Plancy has given Sallos a somewhat Teutonic look with his full beard, shortspear and horned helmet. When a Demon appears riding a specific animal, he may be assumed to have some symbolic link with the beast. The crocodile is a southern predator, and is connected with elemental Water. This would lend Sallos a mingled fiery and watery quality, and in the absence of any other indicators to the contrary,would place him in the south.


FROM “THE GOETIA: THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON THE KING” (1904) WRITTEN BY S.L. MACGREGOR MATHERS

SALLOS. – The Nineteenth Spirit is Sallos (or Saleos). He is a Great and Mighty Duke, and appeareth in the form of a gallant Soldier riding on a Crocodile, with a Ducal Crown on his head, but peaceably. He causeth the Love of Women to Men, and of Men to Women; and governeth 30 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, etc.

FROM THE “PSEUDOMONARCHIA DAEMONUM” ( 1583 ) WRITTEN BY JOHANN WEYER (JOHANN WIER)

Saleos [Zaleos] is a great earle, he appeareth as a gallant [handsome] soldier, riding on a crocodile, and weareth a dukes crowne, peaceable, andc.

Original Text: Zaleos magnus Comes: apparet ut miles pulcherrimus in crocodilo equitans, and ducali ornatus corona, pacificus, andc.


FROM THE “DICTIONNAIRE INFERNAL” (EDITION OF 1863 ) WRITTEN BY JACQUES AUGUSTE SIMON COLLIN DE PLANCY

Zaebos is grand-count of Hell and sweet of character. He appears as a good soldier with a ducal crown on his head and rides a crocodile.

Original Text : Zaebos, grand comte dés enfers. Il a la figure d’un beau soldat monté sur un crocodile; sa tête est ornée d’une couronne ducale. Il est doux de caractère.
