Secretum Sygillum Solomon

Peter Smart's 1699 engraving of the Solomon's Brass Vessel with every one of the 72 Shem ha-Mephorash angel names designed to control the 72 corresponding demons of the Goetia. Note that each angelic name is numbered from 1 to 72, beginning just below 'Din' and ending in the opposite corner. Note also the Secret Seal of Solomon in its place as a stopper for the Brass Vessel. This Seal is even captioned 'Secretum Sygillum Solomon' is to avoid any doubt as to its true nature.
