Thanks for that video Audrey. Gilgamesh would love castle grove. He would have cut down those trees as well.

52 - 60
“Whoever had a household went to his household. Whoever had a mother went to his mother. Bachelor males, types like him -- there were fifty -- joined him at his side. He made his way to the blacksmith's, and had them cast ...... weapons and axes, the strength of warriors. Then he made his way to the deeply shaded plantations, where he had ebony trees felled, and halub trees, apricot trees, and box trees. He ...... to his fellow-citizens who were going with him. {(1 ms. adds:) Warriors, sons of a single mother .......} The first, their eldest brother, has lion's paws and eagle's claws. They will guide him to the place in the mountains where the boats have to be pulled from the water.

61. He crossed the first mountain range, {but his intuition did not lead him to find the cedars there} {(1 ms. has instead:) the cedars did not catch his attention}. {(the same ms. adds:) He crossed the second mountain range, but the cedars did not catch his attention. He crossed the third mountain range, but the cedars did not catch his attention. He crossed the fourth mountain range, but the cedars did not catch his attention. He crossed the fifth mountain range, but the cedars did not catch his attention. He crossed the sixth mountain range, but the cedars did not catch his attention.} {(another ms. adds instead:)
unknown no. of lines missing

He crossed the third mountain range, but his intuition did not lead him to find the cedars there. He crossed the fourth mountain range, but his intuition did not lead him to find the cedars there. He crossed the fifth mountain range, but his intuition did not lead him to find the cedars there. He crossed the sixth mountain range, but his intuition did not lead him to find the cedars there.}

62-67. When he had crossed the seventh mountain range, there his intuition led him to find the cedars. He did not need to ask, nor did he have to search any further. Lord Gilgamec began to chop at the cedars, {{while Enkidu lopped off their branches, ...... to Gilgamec.} {(1 ms. has instead:) while Enkidu ...... their branches, and his fellow-citizens .......} {(1 ms. adds:) to ......, Enkidu .......} ...... stacked them in piles. {(1 ms. adds:) Huwawa .......} He loosed his terrrors against .......} {(instead of lines 65-67, 1 ms. has:) while Enkidu cut up the timbers, and the widows' sons who had come with him heaped them up in piles. Since, because of the ......, Huwawa had been scared in his lair by Gilgamec, he began to radiate his terrors .......}”

The Sumerian. version of “Gilgamec and Huwawa (Version A)” From <[etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk];

Interestingly, Gilgamesh and Enkidu plus the 50 non-royal bachelors had to cross 7 mountain ranges before they attained their quest.
