The Lillu are a clan of primordial storm and wind spirits, many of whom developed a reputation as being vampiric or are described as incubi and succubi. Among these related spirits are:
• The Lillu, male spirits; Sumerian hero Gilgamesh’s father may have been a Lillu
• Lilitu (Sumerian name for Lilith)
• Ardat Lili (possibly Lilith’s handmaiden)
• Irdu Lili (Ardat Lili’s male counterpart; possibly Lilith’s servant)
