BUNE, or BIME.-The Twenty-sixth Spirit is Bune (or Bim). He is a Strong, Great and Mighty Duke. He appeareth in the form of a Dragon with three heads, one like a Dog, one like a Gryphon, and one like a Man. He speaketh with a high and comely Voice. He changeth the Place of the Dead, and causeth the Spirits which be under him to gather together upon your Sepulchres. He giveth Riches unto a Man, and maketh him Wise and Eloquent. He giveth true Answers unto Demands. And he governeth 30 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, unto the which he oweth Obedi­ence. He hath another Seal (which is the first of these, but the last is the best).

Bune - Demon and Spirit of Solomon
From the Luciferian Goetia ( 2007 ) – Written by Michael Ford

“Bune is a shade gatherer, under the form of Azrael –the Angel of Death. Bune gathers shades unto one place, or sepulcher that they may reside in your place of dwelling, gathering knowledge and impulses from beyond the grave in the dreaming state. Bune brings knowledge of how one may become better, and grow in experience and wisdom.”

Bune - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

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

Bune is a great and a strong Duke, he appeareth as a dragon with three heads, the third whereof is like to a man; he speaketh with a divine voice, he maketh the dead to change their place, and divels to assemble upon the sepulchers of the dead: he greatlie inricheth a man, and maketh him eloquent and wise, answering trulie to all demands, and thirtie legions obeie him.

Original Text : Bune Dux magnus and fortis, apparet ut draco, tribus capitibus, tertium vero assimilatur homini. Muta loquitur voce: Mortuos locum mutare facit, and dæmones supra defunctorum sepulchra congregari: omnimodo hominem locupletat, redditque loquacem and sapientem: ad quæsita vere respondet. Huic legiones parent triginta.

Bune - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

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

Original Text : Bune, démon puissant, grand-duc aux enfers. Il a la forme d’un dragon avec trois têtes, dont la troisième seulement est celle d’un homme. Il ne parle que par signes ; il déplace les cadavres, hante les cimetières et rassemble les démons sur les sépulcres. Il se vante d’enrichir et de rendre éloquents ceux qui le servent. Trente légions lui obéissent.

Les démons soumis à Bune, et appelés Bunis, sont redoutés des Tartares, qui les disent trèsmalfaisants.Il faut avoir la conscience nette pour être à l’abri de leur malice ; car leur puissance est grande et leur nombre est immense. Cependant les sorciers du pays les apprivoisent, et c’est par le moyen des Bunis qu’ils se vantent de découvrir l’avenir.
