Balam, or Balaam, is the Fifty-first Spirit, a Great and Powerful King. He appears with three heads: the first is like that of a bull, the second is like that of a man, and the third is like that of a ram. He rides a furious bear, and has a goshawk upon his hand. He speaks in a hoarse voice, giving answers of things past, present, and to come. He makes men invisible and also to be witty. He governs 40 Legions of Spirits.
