“The 1800 BC. Babylonians of which you speak were only reframing a much older narrative from approx. 2600 BC and which may have had even earlier origins but was passed down orally before being written in cuneiform. Hence, a reference to Lebanon.”

Barbelo, Agree with everything except the bit about the stories being passed down orally. They are all there on the tablets. The scribes were very careful, noting in clay when a symbol was wrong or too broken to read. The only reason they were misread and turned into the type of weird prose that everyone is quoting today is because nobody could understand them when they were discovered. Were the Gilgamesh stories also misread from an earlier language? I haven’t attempted retranslating any of them through the monosyllabic forms that they might have originally had – a gigantic task, by the way. But I’m guessing that they are part and parcel of our misunderstanding of our common history. And of that, yes, I admit that, like you, I very much do give a shit. That is why I posted the quote from Hamlet’s Mill for Thanos, which tends to confirm this, with fingers crossed that he will avoid over-quoting from Gilgamesh in his future book. Very sorry to read that he prefers Audrey's insulting and unproductive rant to any other posts here.
