The aqrabuamelu were a species of scorpion-human hybrids (much like centaurs) that appear in Akkadian mythology. Also called girtablilu, they were created by Tiamat to war against the younger deities. Scorpion-men of the same sort guard the gates of the underworld, allowing passage only for the sun god.
