Scorpion men are featured in several Akkadian language myths, including the En ma Elish and the Babylonian version of the Epic of Gilgamesh. They were also known as aqrabuamelu or girtablilu. They were first created by the Tiamat in order to wage war against the younger gods for the betrayal of her mate Apsu.

In the Epic of Gilgamesh, they stand guard outside the gates of the sun god Shamash at the mountains of Mashu. These give entrance to Kurnugi, the land of darkness. The scorpion men open the doors for Shamash as he travels out each day, and close the doors after him when he returns to the underworld at night. They also warn travellers of the danger that lies beyond their post.

Their heads touch the sky, their terror is awesome and their glance is death. This meeting of Gilgame, on his way to ta-napi ti, with the Scorpion-folk guarding the entrance to the tunnel is described in I k r Gilg me, tablet IX, lines 47-81.
