Definition: The king of the infernal regions, corresponding to the Greek
Pluto, and also the judge of departed souls. In later times he is more
exclusively considered the dire judge of all, and the tormentor of the
wicked. He is represented as of a green color, with red garments,
having a crown on his head, his eyes inflamed, and sitting on a
buffalo, with a club and noose in his hands.
