Originating about the same time as the Gilgamesh epic is a terracotta plaque, known as the Burney Relief, that some scholars have identified as the first known pictorial representation of Lilith. More recently, scholars have identified the figure as Inanna. The Babylonian relief shows her as a beautiful, naked sylph with bird wings, taloned feet and hair contained under a cap decorated with several pairs of horns.
She stands atop two lions and between two owls, apparently bending them to her will. In early incantations against Lilith, she travels on demon wings, a conventional mode of transportation for underworld residents. Dating from the seventh or eighth century B.

One talmudic reference claims that people should not sleep alone at night, lest Lilith slay them Shabbath b. During the year period between the death of Abel and the birth of Seth , the Talmud reports, a distraught Adam separates himself from Eve. The female night demon is Lilith. About the time the Talmud was completed, people living in the Jewish colony of Nippur, Babylonia, also knew of Lilith. Her image has been unearthed on numerous ceramic bowls known as incantation bowls for the Aramaic spells inscribed on them.

In the Middle Ages, however, the Babylonian she-demon took on new and even more sinister characteristics.
