Agchoniôn

Agchoniôn: A demon of crib death mentioned in the Testament of Solomon. Agchoniôn appears with the head of a beast and the body of a man. In addition to suffocating infants in their cribs, he is said to lie in wait for men near cliffs. When a likely victim comes along, Agchoniôn creeps up behind him and pushes him to his death. This demon of suffering is number thirty-three from among the thirty-six demons associated with the decans of the zodiac. He can be driven away through the use of the name Lycurgos.
