Gallu

In Sumerian and Akkadian (Babylonian and Assyrian[?]) mythology, Gallu was a wild spirit that, under the shape of a bull, went through the cities, especially by night. It was believed that Gallu could attack anyone who was at sight. It is not clear if these peoples believed in only one Gallu or in an undetermined number of them.
