A possibly lost book containing occult knowledge and wisdom. It was most prominently featured in the works of Lovecraft, and he later claimed that the book was his own invention. However, further investagations show references to the work "necronomicon" much older than Lovecraft so even if he did completely invent all the information in his "unspeakable necronomicon" it is still likely there was some old occult text of the same name that was just wiped from history as part of the cycle of book burnings and european wars.
A work called the "Necronomicon" may have existed, even if it wasn't anything like the book featured in Lovecraft's works.
