Original Text : Focalor, général aux enfers. Il se montre sous les traits d’un homme ayant des ailes de griffon. Sous cette forme il tue les bourgeois et les jette dans les flots. Il commande à la mer, aux vents, et renverse les vaisseaux de guerre. Il espère rentrer au ciel dans mille ans ; mais il se trompe. Il commande à trente légions, et obéit en rechignant à l’exorciste
