ALILAT.  "The child-bearing" (?).  An ancient Arabian goddess.  She was possibly a form of the moon. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

    Alilat.—Mylitta or Alitta, from weled, "to bear children."...
... Alilat seems to be only a variant of Alitta, which see...
... Alilat may be merely "Goddesses," as in the beginning of the speech of Hanno, in the Poenulus of Plautus, alonim v'alonuth, "gods and goddesses," or it may be the same as Alitta, the goddess of childbirth...
... Scaliger and Selden suppose Alilat to be the same as the moon, or night, the léleh (layleh) of Hebrew and Arabic.  If so, Urotal should be referred to the day, or the sun, the Aor "light" of Hebrew.—[G.W.].
