cheremone

Hi.

Porphyrius dicit siquis cognosceret figuram natiuitatis dominumque figurae, inueniret daemonem suum, & per, ipsum solueretur a fato natiuitatis sed subdit impossibile esse scire illam, & hunc inuenire, & regulas astronomiae, & astrologiae esse incomprehensibiles, & in certas teste est cheremone.


The last word cheremone I can't find in any dictionary.
What does this word mean ?
This might be a transcription from Greek, but there seems to be none like this word in LSJ.

This passage is from a translation (by Ficino) of a Greek text of Iamblichus.
So if somebody here easily able to read and search Greek texts, find for me the place in the original Greek text, it would be great.

There are some typos in your text, probably due to failure in optical character recognition. Cheremon is the name of a person.
