Ok, Let´s start the Wikiattack!
In Zoharistic Qabalah, Agrat Bat Mahlat is one of the four angels of prostitution, who mates with Samael. Her fellow succubi are Lilith, Naamah, and Eisheth Zenunim. Considering Mahlat and Agrat as proper names and bat as "daughter of" (Hebrew), Agrat bat Mahlat means 'Agrat daughter of Mahlat'. Sometimes Agrat is used alone, or with variations (Agrath, Igrat, Iggeret). Iggeret means in Hebrew 'letter or missive' while 'agrah' means 'reward'. Mahathallah, probably the correct spelling of Mahlat means in Hebrew 'deception' or 'illusion'. Therefore, Agrat bat Mahlat could be translated as Agrat 'daughter of illusions', 'bringer of deception' or 'reward for deception'

These four angels are also known as the Queens of Hell or the spouses of Satan, and some authors as Donald Tyson refer to them as manifestations of Lilith. Agrat Bat Mahlat rules Salamanca (western quarter), The southern quarter is controversial, since it is assigned to a country (Egypt) instead of to a city, and the name of the ruler is unclear, usually identified as Mahalat (the mother of Agrat?) or Rahab instead of Eisheth.

It is generally believed that the best and possibly only way to prevent attack by or to banish a Succubus is through the art of prayer, particularly through the use of the ‘Saint Michael’s prayer’.
