From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by S.L. MacGregor Mathers

The Sixth Spirit is Valefor. He is a mighty Duke, and appeareth in the shape of a Lion with an Ass’s Head, bellowing.

He is a good Familiar, but tempteth them he is a familiar of to steal. He governeth 10 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, which is to be worn, whether thou wilt have him for a Familiar, or not.

Valefor - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)

Valefar, alias Malephar [Malaphar], is a strong duke, comming foorth in the shape of a lion, and the head of a theefe [or “barking”], he is verie familiar with them to whom he maketh himself acquainted, till he hath brought them to the gallowes, and ruleth ten legions.

Original Text : Valefar, alias Malaphar, Dux est fortis, forma leonis prodiens and capite latronis. Familiaritatem parit suis, donec laqueo suspendantur. Decem præsidet legionibus.

Valefor - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy

Original Text : Valafar ou Malafar, grand et puissant duc de l’empiré infernal. Il paraît sous la forme d’un ange, quelquefois sous celle d’un lion avec la têle et les pattes d’une oie et une queue de lièvre.Il connaît le passé et l’avenir, donne du génie et de l’audace aux hommes, et commande trente-six légions.

Note from Occult World : In the Dictionnaire Infernal Valafar commands 36 Legions of Demons instead of the 10 that Wier andS.L. MacGregor Mathers mention.
