This passage, as understood and translated by Samuel Kramer, would
include the oldest known reference to Lilith. See the Sumerian Mythology FAQ (from which this is pirated) for a
fuller discussion. I have included the larger context with the specific
appearances fo Lilith in bold.
...a serpent who could not be charmed
made its nest in the roots of the tree,
The Anzu bird set his young in the branches of the tree,
And the dark maid Lilith built her home in the trunk.
(Wolkstein83: p. 8)
