The code of Hammurabi was one of the earliest and most complete written legal codes and was proclaimed by the Babylonian King Hammurabi, who reigned from 1792 to 1750 B.C. Hammurabi expanded the city-state of Babylon along the Euphrates river to unite all of southern Mesopotamiam,  and Babylon was the capital city of the ancient Empire,  one of the first ancient urban cultures. Hammurabi code of laws, a total of 282 rules, established standards for commercial interactions and set fines and punishments to meet the requirements of justice. The stele was rediscovered in 1901 at the site of Susa in present-day Iran, where it had benn taken as plunder six hundred years after its creation. The text itself was copied and studied by Mesopotamian scribes for over millennium. The stele now resides in the Louvre Museum. It shows us first human manifestation of respect for the rule of law, and at the complexity of Old Babylonian society.
