in Revelation 9:11, it is said, “the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon ( Abbaton), but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon and in the Vulgate by the Latin Exterminans (Destroyer). We are told he is the king of the deep pit which is is the great gathering place of the dead, more commonly known as Sheol ie: hell or the abyss and the name given to the angel who with Maweth, i.e. ‘death,’ stands over the six angels of destruction, who aid God in the punishment of the wicked
In ancient Gnostic texts such as in the 3rd century Acts of Thomas, Abaddon is the name of a demon, or the devil himself. The two texts that explain his roles is a homily called “The Enthronement of Abbaton” by pseudo-Timothy of Alexandria, and the Apocalypse of Bartholomew.
In the homily by Timothy, Abbadon was first named Muriel, and had been given the task by God of collecting the earth that would be used in the creation of Adam. Upon completion of this task, the demon/angel was appointed as a guardian over the spiritual and corporeal realms which includes the angels, demons, and corporeal entities who greatly feared him.
Muriel (angel) Muriel, whose name is derived from the Greek myrrh, is a Domination or Dominion (one of the ‘Second Sphere’ Angels) in Western Christian Angelology. Muriel is the Angel of the Month of June, is associated with the astrological sign of cancer, and is invoked from the South.
Abaddon was promised that any who venerated him in life could be saved. Abaddon is also said to have a prominent role in the Last Judgement, as the one who will take the souls to the Valley of Josaphat. He is described in the Apocalypse of Bartholomew as being present in the Tomb of Jesus at the moment of his resurrection.
