Name of a king of Mosoch and Thubal, or of the "land of Magog" mentioned in Ezechiel, 38. His armies came "from the northern parts," from the country bordering on the Black Sea, i.e., from Scythia. In Apocalypse 20, Gog and Magog represent the last host that makes an assault upon the followers of Christ. Gog and Magog are also the fanciful names of two gigantic wooden statues in the Guildhall in London.
