After asking the elders for advice, Gilgamesh prompts Enkidu to go with him to visit his “mother’s temple” and goes on to say, “[L]et us go and speak to lady Ninsun, the wise, the all-knowing” (Mitchell 98).
Based on this, Ninsun is BEST compared to
the Greek goddess Aphrodite because both women have a capacity to love.
the Greek goddess Athena, who is also wise and helps heroes on their journeys.
the Norse god Thor because both have immense strength.
the Greek god Hera because she is the mother of all beings.
the Greek messenger Hermes because they deliver messages to the hero.
