A tyrant King who was warned by the Gods, with the creation of Enkidu an equal to him to show him the limits of power. After a close battle, Enkidu became his friend and confident, and went along with him on great fights against Jumbaba and the Bull of heaven, which made the Gods furious, and imposed a punishment: killing Enkidu.
