Bifrons: (Unknown) According to Wierius is the demon of astronomy, geometry
and other sciences. A demon that lights strange lights over the graves of the dead.
Bifrons will teach the virtues of stone and wood and is also a spirit of necromancy, which rules the shadow realm, and can bring out the specters of the dead, though often they are not who they say they are. Be cautious, but also forgiving of these spirits. Bifrons can change the place of corpses by being the ghosts' link to various fetishes, pots, and the lights that shine over the graves of the dead. Bifrons teaches astrology, geometry, mathematics and other sciences and arts.Bifrons, also known as Bifrous or Brifovs is an earl, who appears as a monstrous wolf, who at the will of the Sorcerer can shape-shift into a human male.Bifrous was also one of the names given to Baphomet, allegedly worshiped by the Knights Templar, who was described as a statue with two heads, certainly inspired by the Roman God Bifrons, one look to the left, to say the past and look to the other the right to tell the future, all this through the power of a demon (there were other assumptions about the figure of Baphomet). He rules 6 legions of spirits.

His job is to make someone know in Astrology, Geometry and other Arts and Sciences. He teaches the Virtues of Gems and Woods. He changes Dead Bodies and places them elsewhere; he also lights visible candles over the graves of the dead. He has under his command 6 Legions of Spirits.

Original text: Bifrons are seen in the likeness of a monster. When he takes a human picture, he makes a man marvelous in Astrology, teaching absolutely the journeys of the planets, he does the same in geometry as other measurements. He understands the strength of herbs and precious stones of wood. He changes the bodies of the dead from place to place: he seems to inflame candles on the graves of the dead. Under him were twenty-six legions.
