goldenteaset: (Gilgamesh and Enkidu)

And it had a long, long journey to get there.

 Here's the link.

This is so cool! In this version, it's made clearer that Enkidu knew Humbaba when he was younger, which is interesting. Also, Humbaba in this version isn't an ogre so much as a King himself, with a chorus of monkeys and other animals to entertain him! (Maybe that's how Enkidu knew him--a friend of a friend?) 

This means Gilgamesh and Enkidu aren't (just) monster-slayers, but King-slayers, which would certainly explain the events that happen after. Well, more than they are already.

Here's hoping there's still more tablets out there!
