I thought I'd upload a very old epic.

Hi, crich70!

I know this is an old thread, but I'm currently reading this one (thank you!) and I have a question. Do you know the name of the translator? If not, could you tell me (if you remember at this late date) where you obtained the copy? I haven't been able to find it anywhere, not even armed with the knowledge that the book contains a "Special Introduction from Babylonian and Assyrian Literature [1901] by Epiphanius Wilson, A.M."

I have discovered that this work comes from the aforementioned Babylonian, Armenian, and Assyrian literature (1901) by Leonidas Le Cenci Hamilton and retains the Introduction to that work by Epiphanius Wilson. Within that work it was known as The Epic of Izdubar.

Who was Izdubar?
Quote:
From Internet Sacred Texts Archive:

Izdubar is a literal translation of the ideograph for 'Gilgamesh', and was how the hero of the Gilgamesh saga was known when this book was written in the 1880s. A lexicographic tablet was finally discovered several decades later in which Izdubar was equated with Gilgamesh.

Interesting. Thanks for the history of the book WT Sharpe. Name changes don't surprise me. In the story of the 3 men thrown into the oven for not worshiping the king's golden idol for example they had Hebrew names and they were changed into Babylonian names (which are the ones recorded for the story). Each culture has something slightly different. Like Zimmerman in German means Carpenter for example.
