Barbel of Gurth, son of Delbor, was an arbiter and diplomat from the tenth century.

His greatest skills were arbitrating and speaking in tongues, and was the inventor of the GOLMAC spell. He held two positions of authority: President of the Gurth Arbiters Congress, and Guildmaster of the Gurth City chapter of the Enchanters' Guild, a position he attained in 933 GUE. With his authority, he was able to restore high enchantment dues.

Barbel was a noted critic of his fellow Enchanters. Incidentally, Barbel of Gurth's Double Fanucci handicap is 42.
