The Battle starts as Odysseus and some of his crew member's boat,landed at abounded island.Odysseus jumped from the boat and spoke:

"My man,I think this is not Ithaca.Ithaca is not that rocky"

And Odysseus heard a sound and went to see what's going on,after some steps he climb a small rovk and saw two big and dark haired humans-Those were Enkidu and Gilgamesh.With no time to waste Odysseus pulled his bow and aimed at Gilgamesh,but after he released the string Enkidu jumped to save Gilgamesh,but he was pinned in the neck by the arrow.Seeing that Enkidu died,Gilgamesh turned and threw a javelin against the Ithacan king,missing him by few inches.Than Gilgamesh rushed at Odysseus with his spear.
