The demon Gusion is a Fallen Angel and eleventh of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. In Hell, Gusion is a duke who appears as a cynocephalus (xenophilus). He discerns the past, present, and future; answers all questions; confers honor and dignity; and reconciles enemies. He commands 40 Legions of demons. His name is also seen as Gusayn,
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Samuel MacGregor Liddell Mathers
The Eleventh Spirit in order is a great and strong Duke, called Gusion. He appeareth like a Xenopilus. He telleth all things, Past, Present, and to Come, and showeth the meaning and resolution of all questions thou mayest ask. He conciliateth and reconcileth friendships, and giveth Honour and Dignity unto any. He ruleth over 40 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, the which wear thou as aforesaid.
From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)
Gusoin [Gusoyn] is a great duke, and a strong, appearing in the forme of a Xenophilus, he answereth all things, present, past, and to come, expounding all questions. He reconcileth freendship, and distributeth honours and dignities, and ruleth over fourtie [and five] legions of divels.
From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy
Original Text : Gusoyn, grand-duc aux enfers. Il apparaît sous la forme d’un chameau. Il répond sur le présent, le passé, l’avenir, et découvre les choses cachées. Il augmente; les dignités, et affermit les honneurs. Il commande à quarante-cinq légions.
Note of Occult World :
It’s not clear if Gusion rules 40 or 45 Legions of demons. There is no image of Gusion in the Dictionnaire Infernal. In the Dictionnaire Infernal it is stated that Gusion appears as a Camel instead of a Dog Head ( Cynocephalus ) as mentioned above.
