Code of Hammurabi

The Code of Hammurabi is a well-preserved ancient law code, created ca. 1790 BC in ancient Babylon. Hammurabi said he was chosen by the gods to deliver the law to his people, in a story cited as the likely starting point for the Ten Commandments which was written almost 2000 years later.
