Enkidu didn't know,
What bread was and how to eat it properly.
He had not learned yet how to drink wine.
Then the lass opened her mouth
And said to Enkidu: "Now eat the bread,
O Enkidu, because this is part of the life.
Drink some of this wine how we use to do it in this country!«
So Enkidu ate plenty of bread
And drank seven glasses of wine.
Afterwards his heart was easy,
he felt happy, he was beaming all over his face…
And so he has become a human being. . .
From the Gilgamesch-epic, Ur, about 2000 BC.
