29 The palace archives from Mari are particularly attuned to the contribution of herdsmen to the society of the entire region, and its correspondence shows how much the integration of upstream and downstream Mesopotamia was dependent on the role of pastoralism in the larger economy. 30 In the Akkadian Huwawa narrative, Enkidu hails from the steppe, a radical reorientation from the Sumerian setting. The new tale now brings Enkidu to Uruk because he knows Huwawa from the highlands where he roamed with the bulum (Yale III 106-107).
With the shift of Enkidu's origins to the steppe in the Akkadian Huwawa narrative, Enkidu is repeatedly characterized by Gilgamesh and the elders as one who "knows; by way of his experience in the realm of herdsmen. In this context, Enkidu's knowledge is crucial to his role as Gilgamesh's partner on the expedition. As reflected in Penn, the epic author in Penn then reinterprets Enkidu's back country origins as wild, recasting this past as a source of vitality and vigor as opposed to one of knowledge.
This diverges from what we have in Penn, where Enkidu only confronts lions after abandoning life in the wild and taking up residence at the shepherd's camp. Penn and Yale also lack a direct verbal connection in their treatments of this theme. ''A lion raided you" offers no direct reference back to the plural lions and wolves of Penn, where Enkidu plays the active role. Although the wording is close enough to facilitate an easy transition from Penn to Yale, the lack of matching details indicates an underlying contrast in narrative perspectives.
