The Gilgamesh Epos is believed to be a Sumerian tale about king (and Semi-God) Gilgamesh of Uruk, which survived on twelve clay tablets. It revolves around the relationship between Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Enkidu is a wild man created by the gods as Gilgamesh's equal, to become his companion and co-adventurer - the only one capable of equaling him in strength.

The Lexigrams used in this translation are also know as the Ape-Esperanto, developed by Ernst von Glaserfeld (1977), and researchable on Great Ape Trust.
