9 Pax showed up to relive the Epic of Gilgamesh, to accompany Gilgamesh and Enkidu to the Cedar Forest to kill the monster Humbaba, who is described below.

At the Cedar Forest, Humbaba:

“he had the paws of a lion and

a body covered in thorny scales;

his feet had the claws of a vulture, and

on his head were the horns of a wild bull;

his tail and phallus each ended in a snake’s head.”
