Dantalion is a jinn mentioned in the Lesser Key of Solomon, a  17th Century grimoire. Solomon, the legendarily wise king of ancient Judah, is shown in ancient texts, such as the Apocalypse of Adam and the Testament of Solomon, to have had an army of demons at his command that were housed in his ring, the Seal of Solomon; a magical antecedent to Green Lantern. Dantalion would have been the commander in chief of Solomon’s demons.
