Agares is a Duke of Hell and one of the seventy-two demons described in the Ars Goetia. He rules the eastern zone of Hell and is served by 31 legions of demons. He can make runaways come back and those who run stand still, finding pleasure in teaching immoral expressions. He also has the power to destroy dignities, both temporal and supernatural. He is depicted as a pale old man riding a crocodile.
