The Lama is a protective female deity in Sumerian mythology. These beneficent Lamassu (plural) are like the nymphs of Sumerian tradition who are shown conducting the faithful into the precinct of the temple where gods are installed.

John and Caitlin Matthews, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, 2013, Lama, p 289
