Sethos (ca. 12th century C.E.)
According to M. A. Del Rio (1561–1608), Sethos was a diviner,
who was deprived of his sight by the Emperor Manuel because
of his addiction to magic. It is said that the emperor Andronicus
Comnenus, cousin of Manuel, had Sethos divine by
hydromancy an answer to the question of who was to succeed
him. The spirit gave the letters ‘‘S I’’ in reply; and on being
asked when, said before the feast of the exaltation of the Cross.
This prediction was fulfilled, for before the date mentioned,
Isaac Angelus had thrown Andronicus to the mob to be torn to
pieces. It is said that when the devil spells, he spells backwards,
so that ‘‘S I’’ may be taken to represent Isaac
