Contrasts in characterization and narrative logic distinguish the adventure to defeat the monster Huwawa from what precedes and follows it in the Akkadian Gilgamesh Epic. Fleming and Milstein argue that the Huwawa narrative must have been composed from a prior Akkadian composition that stood on its own.
