The first major difference was regarding the conspiracy to dethrone the false Smerdis/ Bardiya. In Herodotus’ Histories, we learn that Cambyses killed his brother Smerdis because of a dream he had that a messenger from Persia came to him with tidings that Smerdis sat upon the royal throne and with his head touched the heavens; with this he believed his brother would likely kill him and rule in his stead (3.30.2-3). We also learn that while Cambyses was in Egypt, two Magi brothers revolted against him. One of the Magians looked like Smerdis, and had the same name; and he called himself king; his brother Patizeithes, whom Cambyses left behind to take care of his household, was the mastermind behind the plan. Hearing this, Cambyses intended to rush back to Persia, but when he leaped upon his horse, the tip of his sword scabbard fell off and exposed the blade, which stabbed his thigh, and he eventually dies from the injury (3.61.1- 3.64.5).
The story begins by helping us, the readers, to compare and contrast the two parallel lives, Luke and Lulach, with Lulach waking up to the “sound of bagpipes”, and Luke in the present time, “gazing of the limousine”.

There are multiple comparisons between Luke And Lulach such as their desire for a perfect world, they both don’t feel the same love for their stepfathers, and both of them find it hard to accept their father’s deaths as if it were a dream or a movie.

His subjects cried to the gods because of this oppression, and the gods heard their pleas and created a wild man named Enkidu who they sent to put Gilgamesh in check. The wild man who lived with beasts was controlled, and tamed by what the Greeks called Hetaerae who has sex with him.

This paper compares ancient Egyptian art with ancient Greek art and considers the ways in which the Greeks were influenced by Egyptian art. Egypt established a long and enduring artistic tradition. Greek art drew heavily on that background, using many of the same kinds of subjects and incorporating many similar symbols, but then reinterpreted them through very different eyes and a strikingly different cultural perception. Both visions continue to have a profound impact on artists in modern cultures, from their representation of everyday life to the varied perceptions of the importance and meaning life in general. Catharine Roehrig, Egyptian Art Curator for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, observes, "Egypt's Old Kingdom (Dynasties 3-6, ca.
