Code of Hammurabi

A nearly complete example of the Code of Hammurabi survives today, on a diorite stele in the shape of a huge index finger (7.4 ft) tall. The Code is inscribed in the Akkadian language, using cuneiform script carved into the stele. It is currently on display in the Louvre in Paris.
