Berth is the Twenty-eighth Spirit in the Order in which Solomon bound them, a Mighty, Great and Terrible Duke. He has two other Names given to him by men of later times; they are Beale or Beal, and Bofry or Bolfry. He appears in the form of a soldier in red clothing, riding upon a red horse, and having a crown of gold upon his head. He gives true answers of the past, present, and to come. You must make use of a Ring when calling him forth, as spoken of regarding Beleth. He can turn all metals into gold. He can give Dignities, and can confirm them into man. He speaks with a very clear and subtle voice. Notwithstanding what is said above it is written he is a great liar and not to be trusted. He governs 26 Legions of Spirits.
