Product Description

In approximately 1750 BC the Babylonian king Hammurabi had a shiny black basalt stela (pillar) placed in the capital city of Babylon. This astonishing object contained nearly 300 laws. By today's standards, some of them seem shockingly cruel, such as number 195: If a son strike his father, his hands shall be hewn off. Or 196: If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out. Some even seem downright unfair - if a patient died during surgery, according to law 218, the doctor's hands would be cut off.
