Ipos is a Fallen Angel and 22nd of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. Ipos is an earl and prince who rules 36 Legions of Demons. He appears as an angel with a lion’s head, goose feet, and a hare’s tail; Johann Weyer said he appears either as an Angel or as an evil and crafty lion. Ipos knows the past and future and imparts wisdom and courage. He makes men witty.
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Written by S.L. MacGregor Mathers :
The Twenty-second Spirit is lpos. He is an Earl, and a Mighty Prince, and appeareth in the form of an Angel with a Lion’s Head, and a Goose’s Foot, and Hare’s Tail. He knoweth all things Past, Present, and to Come. He maketh men witty and bold. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, which thou shalt wear, etc.
From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer ( Johann Wier )
Ipos (Ipes), alias Ayporos (Ayperos), is a great earle and a prince, appeering in the shape of an angell, and yet indeed more obscure and filthie than a lion, with a lions head, a gooses feet, and a hares taile: he knoweth things to come and past, he maketh a man wittie, and bold, and hath under his jurisdiction thirtie six legions.
From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy
Ipes/ Ayperos is a prince and count of hell, who commands 36 legions. He appears as an angel or lion with the head and feet of a goose and a short hair’s tail. Ipes knows of the past and future, gives men intellect and courage, and can tell of hidden treasures.
Original Text : Ipès ou Ayperos, prince et comte de l’enfer ; il apparaît sous la forme d’un ange, quelquefois sous celle d’un lion, avec la tête et les pattes d’une oie et une queue de lièvre, ce qui est un peu court ; il connaît le passé et l’avenir, donne du génie et de l’audace aux hommes, et commande trente-six légions.
