Kunopegos (Kunopaston)

DEMON in the shape of a sea horse. Kunopegos raises himself up a great waves in the open seas, causes sea- sickness among sailors, and sinks boats in order to claim the bodies of men and their treasures. He con- sults with the Prince of Demons, Beelzebub. He can come up to shore as waves and shapeshift into the form of a man. He is thwarted by the angel Iameth. In the Testament of Solomon, King SOLOMON con- fines Kunopegos by casting him into a broad flat bowl filled with 10 receptacles of seawater. The top is forti- fied with marble and the bowl’s mouth is covered with asphalt, pitch, and hemp rope. The vessel is stored in the Temple of Jerusalem.
