In the myth and folklore of the Near East and Europe , Abyzou is the name of a female demon . Abyzou was blamed for miscarriages and infant mortality and was said to be motivated by envy ( Greek : φθόνος phthonos ), as she herself was infertile. In the Jewish tradition , she is identified with Lilith , in Coptic Egypt with Alabasandria , and in Byzantine culture with Gylou , but in various texts surviving from the syncretic magical practice of antiquity and the early medieval era she is said to have many or virtually innumerable names.
