The Code of Hammurabi is inscribed on this seven-foot basalt stele. The stele is now at the Louvre. The Code of Hammurabi refers to a set of rules or laws enacted by the Babylonian King Hammurabi(reign 1792-1750 B.C.). The sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi, enacted the code, and partial copies exist on a 2.25 metre (7.5 ft) stone stele and consists of 282 laws, with scaled punishments, adjusting "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" as graded depending on social status, of slave versus free man or woman.
The Stele of Hammurabi was carved in Diorite, a very hard rock, and stands approximately seven feet tall. On the rock is engraved the image of Hammurabi who stands next to the seated sun god, Shamash. Legend says that the sun god told Hammurabi of the laws that should be shared. The laws are engraved at the bottom in cuneiform, and flow horizontally. It is significant because it is the first known written code of law.
This is all I know about it.It is also in Akkadian language.
