This was the first code of written law. It was written during the rule of Hammurabi, King of Babylon, almost four thousand years ago. It described a very strict set of rules that called for the behanding of thieves, and the killing of muderers. It is the source of the phrase "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life"
