I have a copy of the ANET translation of the 'Epic of Gilgamesh'
Tablet 2 (iv) line 21 on it says: 'Into the meeting house he has intruded, which is set aside for the people, for wedlock.' The footnote says brideship for wedlock. Could this be a meeting place for brideship in a purely sexual sense, meaning a pick up place?
In line 34 and 36 the words lawful have footnotes. Can there be alternative meanings?
