Anagotos: One of several demons said to serve the infernal rulers Magoth and Kore. Anagotos appears in Mathers' translation of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage. In the Abramelin manuscripts kept at the Dresden and Wolfenbittellibraries, the name of this demon is spelled Anagnostos, which might shed more light upon its original meaning.
This name seems Greek in origin. Gnostos means “knowledge,” and the Greek prefix ana- means “against.” Thus, this name likely means “against knowledge” or “not knowing.”
