Hammurabi's Code of Laws

The Babylonian king Hammurabi, as shown standing next to Mesopotamian deity Shamash on the Law Code of Hammurabi. This scene portrays the king receiving his investiture. Following the collapse of the Third Dynasty of Ur around 2000 BC, Mesopotamia was split into a number of small city states. Of these was Babylon, which rose to importance for the first time under Amorite ruler Hammurabi (1792-1750 BC).
