Gilgamesh [r]: From Mesopotamian mythology, a hero whose adventures are recounted in the fragmentary Epic of Gilgamesh. There are numerous versions of this epic story and no consensus that one particular version is the standard one. Gilgamesh has some characteristics in common with Heracles and Achilles, particularly in attachment to a friend who dies.
