Is it simply an evocation? A ritual for creating a shrine?
What is its purpose?
Did you do it 'by the book'?
What happened? What were the effects?
I was inspired to look into Elubatel and Angels of Omnipotence as I am going through some magical changes, and ended up sifting through the Greek Magical Papyri and realised that this spell is even before the one for Acquiring a Supernatural Assistant, 'this most powerful assistant', 'who is also the only lord of the air', 'for without him/ nothing happens.'
Now I have performed neither of those, but I wouldn't say I am an armchair magician, as I have been initiated in the Arts (without realising it for some years) at 9 years old, and have been constantly returning to them ever since.
So, what's your take on them? I don't really understand why I find it difficult to wrap my head around it.

Ok cool, I'll Check it out. Thanks, NonServiam!
Astar Mundi, I can't really tell if you're ironic... I find it difficult to understand irony on the internet, as so much of the elements of human communication is eliminated here. But thanks anyway!
