THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH

I WILL proclaim to the world the deeds of Gilgamesh. This was the man to whom all things were known; thiswas the king who knew the countries of the world. He was wise, he saw mysteries and knew secret things, he brought us a tale of the days before the flood. He went on a long journey, was weary, worn-out with labour,returning he rested, he engraved on a stone the whole story.

When the gods created Gilgamesh they gave him a perfect body. Shamash the glorious sun endowed him with beauty, Adad the god of the storm endowed him with courage, the great gods made his beauty perfect, surpassing allothers, terrifying like a great wild bull. Two thirds they made him god and one third man.
