Ancient Mesopotamia Presentations - Hammurabi
One of the ancient Babylonian kings was named Hammurabi. King Hammurabi was a very clever man. King Hammurabi built the city of Babylon in Marduk's honor. Marduk was the most important god in Babylonian. All the other gods reported to Marduk, just as all the other nobles had to report to the king of Babylon. This was very clever of King Hammurabi. People were afraid to attack Babylon. They did not wish to risk Marduk's anger! He also did something else that was very clever. He wrote the laws down on stone and clay tablets. That way, everyone would be treated the same. If the court proved you broke a law, the punishment for breaking that law was already decided.
