Winged Dragon
   FALLEN ANGEL and one of the 72 SPIRITS OF SOLOMON. Winged Dragon has the limbs of a dragon, wings on its back and the face, and the feet of a man. His activity is to copulate with certain beautiful women through their buttocks. In the Testament of Solomon, he tells King Solomon that one woman he attacked bore a child that became Eros. The woman was killed by others. While he is speaking, the demon breathes out fire that burns the forest of Lebanon and all the wood intended for the construction of the Temple of God. Solomon learns that the Winged Dragon is thwarted by the angel Bazazath. He invokes this angel and then condemns the demon to cut marble for the building of the temple.
