Naberius - Demon and Spirit of Solomon
The jinni Naberius was first mentioned by Johann Weyer in 1583. He is supposedly the most valiant Marquis of Jinnestan, and has nineteen legions of jinn under his command. He makes men cunning in all arts, but especially in rhetoric, speaking with a hoarse voice. He also restores lost dignities and honors, although to Johann Weyer he procures the loss of them.

Naberius appears as a three-headed dog or a raven. He has a raucous voice but presents himself as eloquent and amiable. He teaches the art of gracious living. He is depicted as a crow or a black crane.

Concerning his name, it is unclear if there is an association with the Greek Cerberus. It is said that in 1583, Johann Weyer considers both of them to be the same Demon. He claimed:

“Naberius [Naberus], alias Cerberus, is a valiant marquesse, shewing himselfe in the forme of a crowe, when he speaketh with a hoarse voice: he maketh a man amiable and cunning in all arts, and speciallie in rhetorike, he procureth the losse of prelacies and dignities: nineteene legions heare (and obeie) him.”

Other spellings: Cerberus,Cerbere, Naberus, Nebiros.

Naberius [Naberus], alias Cerberus, is a valiant marquesse, shewing himselfe in the forme of a crowe, when he speaketh with a hoarse voice: he maketh a man amiable and cunning in all arts, and speciallie in rhetorike, he procureth the losse of prelacies and dignities: nineteene legions hearehim.

Original Text : Naberus, alias Cerberus, Marchio est fortis, forma corvi se ostentans: Si quando loquitur, raucam edit vocem. Reddit and hominem amabilem and artium intelligentem, cum primis in Rhetoricis eximium. Prælaturarum and dignitatum jacturam parit. Novendecim legiones hunc audiunt.

Naberius - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

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

Original Text : Cerbère. Cerberus ou Naberus est chez nousun démon. Wierus le met au nombre des marquisde l’empire infernal. Il est fort et puissant ; il semontre, quand il n’a pas ses trois têtes de chien,sous la forme d’un corbeau; sa voix est rauque :
néanmoins il donne l’éloquence et l’amabilité ; ilenseigne les beaux-arts. Dix-neuf légions luiobéissent.
On voit que ce n’est plus là le Cerbère des anciens,ce redoutable chien, portier incorruptibledes enfers, appelé aussi la bête aux cent têtes,
centiceps bellua, à cause de la multitude de serpentsdont ses trois crinières étaient ornées. Hésiodelui donne cinquante têtes de chien ; maison s’accorde généralement à ne lui en reconnaîtreque trois. Ses dents étaient noires et tranchantes,et sa morsure causait une prompte mort.
On croit que la fable de Cerbère remonte auxÉgyptiens, qui faisaient garder les tombeaux pardes dogues. Mais c’est principalement ici du démonCerberus qu’il a fallu nous occuper. En 1586,il fit alliance, avec une Picarde nommée MarieMartin.’
