The captain of the boat shrugs his shoulders and says, 'too late now'. As you get used to the movement of the boat you start to feel better about being a sailor. Several hours later, the boat docks at the city of Nippur to take on supplies of water. You have always dreamed of visiting Nippur and especially want to see the temple of the god Ellil. You feel that you will receive blessings for your journey if you make an offering to Ellil. You ask Iddin-Sin if he will wait while you visit the temple. Unfortunately he is too keen to get home and says no.

Do you make an offering or go on to Dilmun?
