Mextyura: A demon ruled over by Maymon, king of the spirits of Saturn. In the Joseph H. Peterson translation of the Sworn Book of Honorius, Mextyura is said to have power to inspire hatred, anger, and sorrow. He can call down storms of snow and ice. He is associated with the region of the north but is also subordinate to the southwest wind. How exactly this demon is related to two distinctly different directions remains unclear within the text. Compare this name with Zynextur, a demon said to serve Albunalich, demon-king of the earth, in the Driscoll translation of the Sworn Book.
