Law By Hammurabi (1792 to 1749 BCE)

The Code of Hammurabi was based on a set of previously recorded and observed Sumerian laws, of which the Code of Dungi may have been one. However, Dungi’s code is mentioned only sparsely in ancient history texts, and many do not even find it important enough to mention at all. Also, there seems to be some disparity of dates. While once source gives the dates of Dungi’s Code as about three centuries before Hammurabi’s, this same date is also attributed to the Ur-Nammu Code of Law, i.e. approx. 2050-2100 B.C E , which many sources state is the earliest known written code of law in the world, and is the one most often credited as being the source of the Code of Hammurabi.
