Barbatos is the Eighth Spirit, a Great Duke. He appears when the Sun is in Sagittarius, with four noble Kings and their companies of great troops. He gives understanding of the singing of birds, and of voices of other creatures, such as the barking of dogs. He breaks the hidden treasures open that has been laid by the enchantments of the Magicians. He is of the Order of Virtues, of which some part he remains still; he knows all things past and to come, and conciliates friends and those still in power. He governs 30 Legions of Spirits.
