Gilgamesh and Utnapishtim the Thousand Year Old Man


Gilgamesh comes to Utnapishtim.

Utnapishtim is the man the gods will not allow to die, the one with all the answers, and Utnapishtim is a relative of Gilgamesh, family. Utnapishtim wants to tell his story.

Seems like Gilgamesh has been though a lot, too, and could tell about it, but Gilgamesh must shut up, stay awake and listen, because that is the price of immortality.
