Historical Laws and Security2 The Code of Hammurabi was established by King Hammurabi and discovered almost intact in 1901. The code of Hammurabi was clearly developed from earlier Sumerian codes and is quite remarkable for what it tells us about ancient Mesopotamian society. The code contains 282 clauses regulating a vast array of obligations, profession, and rights. Also, the clauses include commerce, slavery, marriage, theft, and debts. The punishment for breaking the code is by modern standards, and barbaric. Draco's Law is named for the Greek citizen who was chosen to write a code of law for Athens. His laws were the first written laws in Greece. These laws are highlighted because they introduce the notion that the state, not private citizens, is responsible for punishing people who commit crimes.
