Gusion - Demon and Spirit of Solomon
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.
