“The goddess NIN-TU ...The upper part of her body is that of
a naked woman, and the lower part is said to be scaly like the skin of a snake.”

August 23, 2009 Albuquerque, New Mexico - The Writers' list of ancient and modern books concerning spiritual warfare with negative forces in the unseen included Campbell Thompson's Volume 2 of The Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia: “Fever Sickness and
Headache, Etc.” ©1904. Given the reptilian humanoid sculptures in Volume 1, it is noteworthy that in Thompson's list of the 6,000-year-old Sumerian tablets from which his book emerged, there is this description:
“A group of tablets which contain descriptions of a number of supernatural beings, which corresponded roughly to the modern Arabic Jinn and Jann. The identification of the greater number of these is difficult; among those worthy of special note is the goddess NIN-TU, who is said to wear an elaborate tiara and veil and to be girt about the loins with a zone or garment, her breast being uncovered. The upper part of her body is that of a naked woman, and the lower part is said to be scaly like the skin of a snake
