Historical Background

In Christian demonology (Late Medieval- Early Modern European), Bathym (also spelled Bathin, Mathim, Marthim [Batym is a very uncommon spelling, possibly even a typo]) is a demon with the title of Great Duke of Hell, commanding 30 legions of demons. He appears as a very strong man with a serpent's tail riding a pale horse. He has knowledge of precious stones and herbs and can teleport people around the world. His name derives from the Latin word "batha" which means "Ethiopian" and one of his alternate names derives from the Latin "mathios" the name of an herb (historians have been unable to decipher which one) which was believed to keep serpents eternally young. Batym is 1 of 69 demons listed in the Pseudomonarchia Dæmonum and 1 of 72 listed in the Ars Goetia (the first section of the Lesser Key of Solomon).


Only two Demons bear the title Grand [Rank] in their name. Many of the demons from these texts have titles bearing Grand or Great in their name. It seems odd to keep the Grand/Great part for some NMs, but not for others.
