After gods take away Ankidu,  disconsolate Gilgamesh finding immortality goes to the world where Utnapishti lives (the only one whom gods inherit immortality). Utnapishti tells how to find an immortality flower in the deep of water. Finding a flower  Gilgamesh falls a sleep and a snake steels a flower. After the snake regenerates and slips her skin. Gilgamesh returns to his kingdom Uruk and and stays there to rule. This composition, written on twelve clay tablets turns up to describe characters of twelve zodiacal signs.
