sallos
The Demon Sallos ( also Zaebos ) is a Fallen Angel and 19th of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. Sallos is a duke who appears as a gallant soldier wearing a duke’s crown and riding on a crocodile.
He promotes love between men and women and speaks authoritatively about the creation of the world. He governs 30 Legions of Demons.

Sallos - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

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.
