Kawteeah: One of a number of names attributed to the night-demon Lilith. Lilith, by all of her names, was believed to walk abroad at night, preying upon infants and children. She was also thought to attack women in childbirth. In Jewish lore, Lilith-demons were connected with night, darkness, and death. This Hebrew name, transliterated into English, appears in author T. Schrire’s 1966 work, Hebrew Magic Amulets. It is one of the many names of Lilith scribed upon ancient talismans believed to protect women and newborns from the demon’s attacks.
