Orobas - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From Demonologia:

This Demon has the unusual quality of complete truthfulness. An honest nature isoften the path to winning the good will of both friends and enemies. Not only does herefuse to lie, but he will not allow the magician to be deceived by others. When Scotwrites of him putting on a “mans idol” he means simply the shape of a human being.Collin de Plancy has combined the two separate forms of this Demon into a single monster that has the head and hindquarters of a horse, but the torso and arms of aman.
