**Naberius under Nebiros is one of the many alleged “mistakes” in the TG, but they DO have different descriptions.
It was driving me nuts that no one has ever put together an immediately accessible hierarchical chart straight out of a grimoire. So, I spent a few nights using the True Grimoire as a core and filling in as I could. I used three gigantic spirit dictionary/encyclopedias as well as most of the major and several minor variant grimoires. I just started winging it, sticking people where the books said they went, with the idea that I’d note disagreements, but again, using the True Grimoire as the “main” skeleton. That is, I started with the TG and plugged in the attributions for those same names in other grimoires. The Grand Grimoire and Honorius were the main contributors, as well as two different versions of the third book of the best-known Key of Solomon family.
I just did this to get a roughly clear overview of the TG hierarchy, and was pretty surprised when I found that, at least starting from the core of the TG and moving outward, the hierarchies all fit together perfectly. I very quickly got the distinct feeling that information had been deliberately scrambled across multiple books - it wasn’t just that the hierarchies fit, it was the way the books interlocked and each one seemed to supply information that the others omitted. (For example, one book tells you Satanakia is much more powerful if you call him during the third hour of night, none of the others mention this. Seals are “omitted” or incorrectly labelled in one book, but included/correct in another. Also, the wording of the spirits’ abilities will be clear in one book and impenetrably obscure in another. What’s really obvious if you’re actively sifting through this is how CAREFULLY scattered it is. Textbook “ultra-terrestrial” behavior here - conveying information to lots of people knowing that in the future other people will make more sense of it than the original recipients.)
