The Book of Abramelin, or, more verbosely, The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, is a grimoire written in a narrative style, as a letter to the author's son. It lists a standard hierarchy of demons under the rule of the demon kings of the cardinal directions, and a number of spells in the form of word squares, similar to the SATOR square.
This list of demons only enumerates the high ranking demons - the grimoire contains long lists of their servants, which are not currently in this list.
