Quotations

The gods of Uruk, the strong-walled, Assume the shape of flies and buzz about the streets. The protecting deities of Uruk, the strong-walled, take on the shape of mice and hurry into their holes. Three years the enemy besieged the city of Uruk; the city's gates were barred, the bolts were shot. And even Ishtar, the goddess, could not make head against the enemy.
