Horns of Moses and Enkidu


Moses has horns and so does Enkidu, in the epic of Gilgamesh. Enkidu was a wild man, he lived in the wilderness, and Moses spent 40 years in the wilderness. Like Moses, Enkidu came in from the cold, he came with a message (in Enkidu’s case loyalty and friendship were what he brought to King Gilgamesh – human companionship). The myth is of course written on tablets.
