The author approaches the study of the "agotes" and other related peoples, of the Jews, Gypsies and Moors. Based on historical data, the author verifies their physical, pseudobiological and conductual and religious exclusion. Such minorities are confused in other non differentiated "exclusions", which are analysed in four symbolic images present in oral literature: certain manual trades; bandits; hardware dealers or ambulant salesmen; and wizards. Finally, three symbolic overlappings are isolated, from a mythical substratum, which later converge in the image of the hardware dealer.
