If they appear only in Gehennon, then why is there one in the graveyard I awoke? Any undead have the ability to summon? --Havvy 09:10, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Conflicting statements

The gypsy page states that the Justice card summons one if they are not extinct, but this page says that they can be summoned even if extinct--Jundavr (talk) 00:02, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

summon nasties

I don't think that an erinys can be summoned with "summon nasties", despite erinys being "nasty" themselves. (The source code: summon nasties)
So the Wizard of Yendor or a Titan can just summon a barbed/horned devil, that then could summon an erinys with a melee attack. (A golden naga should never be able to cast "summon nasties", unless it is level 14 [its max] and drinks 2 non-cursed potions of gain level, so I don't count it.) The information is relevant because, if I am not mistaken, barbed/horned devils are not generated otherwise (except that from other lawful prince demons, or at creation time in some special levels: lairs, etc...), and that could be the only way to summon the remaining erinys if one fails to use the one guaranteed in Moloch's Sanctum.
