The existence of the Codex Lygdamionicus is a matter of scholarly debate. There is no extant copy of the work. Numerous modern texts attribute their sources to the Codex Lygdamionicus thought to have existed as late as the 23rd century (2200's) somewhere in the Pallathantic Region. Its purported destruction is even more legendary than its existence and many modern writers have confabulated its demise under the fantastic prowess of Arathracian Saints or Incarnandist Tisbajuma.

The work is purported to deal with the infamous Chaos God Lygdamion adored by chaos cultists for millennia and to give specific prayers and incantations to summon and obtain the aid of the god. Proponents of its existence regard the codex as the original source for later Books of Manic Devotions that circulated widely during the Middle Ages of Chaos but have since become contraband in most jurisdictions.

Most scholars believe the so-called Codex Lygdamionicus is a constructed legend designed to explain the many texts that arose during the Middle Ages of Chaos. These scholars propose the theory that there were hundreds of ancient texts treating the god Lygdamion and that no single work can be held accountable for their existence. In constrast, scholars of the Tassan School maintain that antediluvian dévotées of Lygdamion found core scriptures about their god that were collected into great tomes and held in the pre-flood city of Balimarutha.
