    $\begingroup$ It looks like part of the rebus is cut off on the right side. Does the container in rebus #1 read "Quaker Oats"? Also, how are you sure these rebuses are related to mythology? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I'm pretty sure it's

Epic of Gilgamesh starring Humbaba.


A+PUCK = Epic
OVEN - N = of
GILLS - S + GA (i.e. baby talk) + MASH = Gilgamesh
STAR + RING = starring
HUM + BAA BAA = Humbaba
