According to Johan Weyer, Agares is Grand Duke of the
eastern region of Hades. He is shown in the form of a benevolent
lord mounted on a crocodile and carrying a hawk on his
fist. The army he protects in battle is indeed fortunate, for he
disperses their enemies and puts new courage into the hearts
of the cowards who fly before superior numbers. He distributes
place and power, titles and prelacies, teaches all languages, and
has other equally remarkable powers. Thirty-one legions are
under his command.
