ABADDON

[noun]

(Hebrew: אֲבַדּוֹן‎, ‘Ǎḇaddōn, Greek: Apollyon, Latin: Exterminans, Coptic: Abbaton, meaning “A place of destruction”, “The Destroyer”, “Depths of Hell”); in the Revelation of St. John, he is the king of tormenting locusts and the angel of the bottomless pit. The exact nature of Abaddon is debated, but the Hebrew word is related to the triliteral root אבד (ABD), which in verb form means “to perish.”
