Botis is the Seventeenth Spirit, and a Great President and an Earl. He appears at first as an ugly viper, then at the command of the Magician he assumes a human form with great teeth and two horns, carrying a bright and sharp sword in his hand. He tells all things past and to come, and reconciles friends and foes. He governs 60 Legions of Spirits.
